Now, scribes on frontline warriors’ list

Chandigarh, May 3

CM Capt Amarinder Singh on Monday announced all accredited and yellow card journalists in the state to be included in the list of frontline warriors in the fight against Covid. All Power Corporation employees in the state have also been brought into the ambit of frontline workers.

These employees, along with the journalists, will now be eligible for all benefits, including priority vaccination, that frontline workers are entitled to from the state government, said the Chief Minister at a high-level Covid review meeting.

Journalists had been taking grave risks in covering the pandemic, and helping spread awareness on it for the past more than one year, said the Chief Minister. — TNS
