A writ petition has been filed in the Supreme Court seeking non-implementation of the government's decision to make vaccination card mandatory against Covid-19 to obtain public services.

Advocate Sallu Tiwari and law student Sabin Pokharel have filed a writ petition seeking the order against the Prime Minister and the Office of the Council of Ministers. Stating that the government's decision to deprive those who do not have vaccination card from public services is illegal, the writ petition has demanded an interim order not to implement the decision of January 20 and January 14.

According to Supreme Court spokesperson Baburam Dahal, the writ petition has been registered and is scheduled to be heard on Thursday. The CoVID-19 Crisis Management Coordination Center (CCMC) had recommended to the government to make the coronavirus vaccine card mandatory for public access. The government had instructed to make it compulsory to ban entry without vaccination card from January 21 in public and crowded places such as restaurants, cinema halls and stadiums.
