Punjab Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh on Monday launched a month-long drive, as part of `Mission Fateh’, to spread awareness about the coronavirus pandemic.
The campaign will bring the people of Punjab into its fold to make the fight against Covid-19 a battle of the people, by the people and for the people, the Chief Minister said.
Mission Fateh is a symbol of the resolve of the people of Punjab to check the spread of novel coronavirus through discipline, cooperation and compassion, the Chief Minister said. He also stressed the need for adherence to all the safety protocols, cooperation with the state government through compliance with the lockdown restrictions, and compassion towards the poor. It is a true reflection of the Punjabi spirit that can overcome all odds to emerge victorious, he added.
A series of activities will be launched as part of the campaign, which will be driven collaboratively by the Department of Information and Public Relations, as well as various NGOs, charitable institutions and social organizations. Meanwhile, all the state government departments would come together and work in unison to create a positive atmosphere in the state, enabling the people to push forward and make Mission Fateh successful.
The Department of Information and Public Relations has prepared a comprehensive roadmap of activities aimed at spreading awareness on wearing masks, washing hands, maintaining social distance, taking care of the elderly, remaining vigilant about the entry of outsiders in the locality, use of COVA App to track patients of coronavirus and maintaining social distance from them.
