The Punjab Bank Employees Federation city unit today organised a blood donation camp at Parbhat Parwana Memorial Trade Union Centre. The camp was held to commemorate the 52nd Bank Nationalisation Day. Fifty two volunteers donated blood at the camp. The general secretary, Punjab Bank Employees Federation, and the joint secretary, the All India Bank Employees Association, SK Gautam, inaugurated the camp.

On the occasion, Gautam applauded the role of public sector banks in the overall growth of the nation particularly the green and white revolution and infrastructural development.

Employees also took a pledge to save public sector banks from privatisation. The secretary, Punjab Bank Employees Federation, Yadvinder Gupta, said due to Covid-19 pandemic blood banks were running short of blood units.
