New Delhi, May 4 : It was a sight to behold, when the jawans of Indian Army, who have been entrusted with the responsibility of maintaining the security of borders in the country, expressed their gratitude to a different line of soldiers, who were stepping out of their homes, braving all odds, in the battle against Novel Coronavirus.
In order to express gratitude towards frontline healthcare professionals, police personnel and others who are engaged in essential services, the Indian Army's Dharchula Military Station in Uttarakhand felicitated the Corona warriors, who were relentlessly working hard, to contain the virus. Dharchula Military Station Commander Col AP Singh, along with other defence officials, on Sunday distributed sweets and bestowed them with flower necklaces at their respective place of duty in Dharchula, a remote town along the Indo-Nepal Border.
The Station Commander applauded the police and medical professionals for consistently working in high threat scenario and said, ''They are a source of inspiration for other agencies, in our nation's fight against the virulent pandemic.'' Similar emphatic actions by the Indian Army, extending their gratitude towards the Corona warriors were witnessed at various cities and towns, as well as in the remotest of areas across the nation.
