Wrong to harass doctors & journalists: Javadekar

Agency News

New Delhi, Mar 25: The government on Wednesday expressed concern over the eviction of the doctors and journalists from their rented premises due to fear that coronavirus could be transmitted through them as they are going to their workplaces even in the lockdown period. At a press conference, Information and Broadcasting Minister Prakash Javadekar said that it is wrong to harass these people in this manner.

“This is a serious issue and a matter of concern. This kind of thing is not acceptable in a civilised society,” he said. He said that during the Janata Curfew, the whole country had expressed gratitude to these people fighting the corona by clapping but two days later, these brave people are being asked to vacate their home. “This is wrong and society should understand that they are doing service for humanity. Society should understand that these people are in forefront of battle against Corona so they should be respected,” the minister said.

It is notable that on Tuesday, doctors had also complained to Home Minister Amit Shah that the landlords are asking the doctors treating the coronavirus to vacate their rented house. (UNI)
