When everyone is staying inside their homes amid the lockdown as advised by the administration and the government for safety of people, medical staff, police officials and safai karamcharis are acting like soldiers for protection of others.

Safai karamcharis are playing an important role in this difficult scenario and are being seen as superheroes of lockdown. The safai karamcharis are keeping the city clean when the pandemic has gripped the world.

Every day, the workers are ensuring cleanliness in the city and are also visiting houses to pick up waste.

Different areas are being cleaned on a daily basis by the safai karamcharis. The workers are ensuring that no garbage is left on streets and the city should be clean.

One of the safai karamcharis said: “We don’t want to sit at home at this time. We are doing our work zealously with an aim to make the city rubbish-free. I am also visiting homes to pick waste. We have to fight it together.”

Workers honoured for their services

Even the administration today felicitated 150 sanitation workers for rendering their services to humanity by cleaning the city during the ongoing curfew.

Nakodar Sub-Divisional Magistrate(SDM) Amit Kumar Panchal today honoured around 150 sanitation workers who were performing their duty zealously. Led by the SDM, administrative officers felicitated the workers in the main market and expressed gratitude towards them for rendering their services to people. Panchal said it was a testing time and such commitment towards society was expected from every individual.

However, the SDM said sanitary workers had displayed exemplary commitment for work which was unparalleled. Entire society in general and he himself in particular was indebted to the ‘’soldiers of cleanliness’’ for the noble cause.

He said masks, sanitisers and other logistics required by the workers were already being distributed among them.
