New Delhi, Oct 29 : President Ram Nath Kovind on Tuesday made sure to check on the woman security personnel who injured herself while singing the National Anthem at CSR awards here.
There was a little commotion at the awards event when the woman personnel collapsed and injured herself while singing the National Anthem. The award ceremony was organised to honour the CSR achievements under corporate initiatives in an attempt to promote sustainable development. The event was attended by President Kovind along with Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman and her deputy Anurag Thakur.
As soon as the national anthem was over, Mr Kovind descended the stage with Ms Sitharaman and Mr Thakur following him. They enquired the woman security personnel about her health and if she required any medical help.
Apparently, the woman security guard was standing at the front of the stage at Vigyan Bhawan during the function when she twisted her ankle and slipped. With the national anthem being played, she fell and sat on the carpet.(UNI)
