In order to create awareness about the lurking danger of the Covid-19 spread, the district administration will undertake an array of activities to encourage people to be more careful in the coming days.

Deputy Commissioner Girish Dayalan, along with MC Commissioner Kamal Garg and Sub-Divisional Magistrate Jagdeep Saigal, flagged off 25 public address system equipped publicity vehicles to rural and urban areas of the district.

Kickstarting the Mission Fateh campaign in the district, Dayalan said publicity vehicles would traverse through maximum pockets of the district and covey the message of observing all precautions to curb the spread of the virus.

Dayalan said this would be a weekly activity and would continue for three weeks.

The Deputy Commissioner said door-to-door awareness should be created through Covid warriors such as ASHA workers, Anganwadi workers and Guardians of Governance in rural areas. “These workers are being presented Mission Fateh badges to recognise their contribution during the past three months and to encourage them to continue playing a crucial role in fighting the pandemic. The Education Department is also being roped in to apprise the students of the motive of Mission Fateh through online classes,” he said.

He said a committee had been constituted under the chairmanship of the Additional Deputy Commissioner. He added, “The idea is to build a force of 1,000 Mission Fateh warriors at the state-level and reward them with gold, silver and bronze medals on the basis of the points earned.”
