Inaugurating the Seventh Annual General Meeting of the Nepal Health Service Cooperatives Limited and the Manmohan Memorial Medical College and Teaching Hospital operated by it at a function here on Saturday, Chairman Regmi stated that the government has moved forward fully prepared for conducting the elections in a peaceful environment.
