SGPC offers to treat corona patients at its hospitals

Amritsar, March 25

Extending a helping hand amid the coronavirus pandemic, the Shiromani Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee (SGPC) has offered to treat corona positive patients in all its hospitals.

Punjab Chief Minister Amarinder Singh on Wednesday expressed his gratitude to the SGPC for such and offer, including 'serais' or inns for lodging attendants of patients.

“We are in this together and we will win this fight against this deadly disease,” the Chief Minister tweeted.

The SGPC directly controls 79 and indirectly controls 87 gurdwaras in Punjab, Haryana and Himachal Pradesh, including the Golden Temple here.

It runs Sri Guru Ramdas Medical College in Amritsar.

Shiromani Akali Dal chief Sukhbir Singh Badal has also asked his party's district presidents to help the administration, reaching out to doctors and patients in hospitals by providing them much-needed masks, ventilators, and medicines, or simply by ensuring free 'langars' or community kitchens for the needy.
