Corona warriors to be honoured on I-Day

Corona warriors to be honoured on I-Day

Hoshiarpur, August 4

Corona warriors, including doctors, health, sanitation and other workers, who played a significant role to keep the Covid-19 under check, would be honoured in recognition of their immense contribution in this tough time.

DC Apneet Riyait, while chairing a meeting of the civil and the police administration to take stock of preparations for I-Day function, said due to the Covid-19 restrictions, the gathering would be limited and the function would be a low-key affair.

Riyait said the district-level function would be presided over by Industry and Commerce Minister Sunder Sham Arora, while flags would be hoisted by the respective SDMs at subdivisions level. Panchayats and sarpanches would be included at the block-level functions with strict adherence of safety measures. NGOs, who extended noble services in battle against the virus, would be honoured. — OC
