Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan honoured corona warriors in a programme organised at Karunadham Ashram. He felicitated nine persons who fulfilled their duties of performing the last rites of those who passed away due to corona at Bhadbhada and Subhash Nagar Vishram Ghats. On this occasion Sudesh Shandilya Maharaj of Karunadham Ashram, wife of Chief Minister Sadhna Singh and MLA P C Sharma were present. CM honoured Lad Singh Sen, Pradeep Kanojia, Jai Malviya, Vishal Kansotia, Rajesh Hans, Yogesh Neel, Gol Neel, Renu Neel and Akash Beelban. He said that today those corona warriors have been honoured who mostly get unnoticed. He salutes their spirit of service. It has been said that there is no greater religion than benevolence.
The disease was unknown. Many doctors also passed away. It was a really tough time. Paramedical staff including doctors was felicitated, which was much needed. But the dedicated spirit of this section of the society is commendable. Performing the last rites was also difficult in the Vishram Ghats, but these corona warriors who were engaged in this last rite of 16 corona patients were honoured at the Karunadham Ashram stage. The work of these Sevabhavis, who put their lives at risk, is above all services. He said that during the second wave of corona, those engaged in constant service at the Vishram Ghats deserve this honour as their work is incomparable.
When even relatives and friends of the Corona victims were reluctant to come there, these persons performed their last rites with full honour. CM called upon the people to remain cautious. Cases are being reported in Kerala. Vaccination is very important to prevent corona. In Madhya Pradesh, 70 percent of the population has received the first dose of the vaccine. The target is to reach it 100 percent by September 30. People must be aware and get the second dose of the vaccine as per their eligibility.
