‘Guru Ki Rasoi’ started for the needy in Nawanshahr

A selfless tiffin initiative ‘Guru Ki Rasoi’ has been started in Nawanshahr for the needy. District and Sessions Judge-cum-Chairman District Legal Services Authority Kanwaljit Singh Bajwa recently started the rasoi for the destitute, elderly and differently-abled who don’t have any aid or help. He said the NGOs should also come forward in these tough times and fight against Covid so that the poverty-stricken could be helped. Manager Amrik Singh said the services had been started with the support of several Good Samaritans, and for now, the service to provide 25 tiffins has been started. “We will expand it in the future,” he said.
