The Congress president, Mrs. Sonia Gandhi, on Tuesday released a video message to the people asking for their support in the fight against COVID 19 and said there’s no greater patriotism than extending full cooperation to the battle.
Mrs. Gandhi thanked frontline workers like doctors, nurses, sanitation staff saying they continued to offer their services despite the inadequacy of protective gear and asked people to honour these corona warriors.
'It is a matter of concern that we hear incidents involving assault on frontline health workers. They are our first line of defence against the disease and deserve our full and unstinted support and gratitude,' she said.
Mrs. Gandhi also said whether in power or in opposition the Congress will stand with the country in this battle against COVID 19.
She also thanked the people for keeping patience and faith during the lockdown, hoping they would continue to follow social distancing at home and would step out only when it was absolutely essential. 'I hope when you step out of your houses you use a mask or a stole,' she said.
Mrs. Gandhi said people could contact Congress state leaders or the central control room for any help regarding COVID 19 and the party would do its best to help.
