Chandigarh: Taking the state’s battle against COVID to the grassroots, Punjab Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh on Monday launched a month-long drive, as part of `Mission Fateh’, to spread mass awareness about the pandemic.

 

The campaign, which will broaden the ambit of Mission Fateh beyond the frontline workers, will bring the people of Punjab into its fold to make the fight against COVID a battle of the people, by the people and for the people, said the Chief Minister.

 

Describing Mission Fateh as a symbol of the resolve of the people of Punjab to check the spread of novel coronavirus through discipline, cooperation, and compassion, the Chief Minister stressed the need for adherence to all safety protocols, cooperation with the state government through compliance with the lockdown restrictions, and compassion towards the poor. It is a true reflection of the Punjabi spirit that can overcome all odds to emerge victorious, he added.

 

A series of activities will be launched as part of the campaign, which will be driven collaboratively by the Department of Information and Public Relations, as well as various NGOs, charitable institutions and social organizations, which will be encouraged to undertake similar drives within their localities. All the state government departments would come together and work in unison to create a positive atmosphere in the state, enabling the people to push forward and make Mission Fateh successful.

 

To implement the campaign in an effective and result oriented manner, the Department of Information and Public Relations has prepared a comprehensive roadmap of activities aimed at spreading awareness on wearing masks, washing hands, maintaining social distance, taking care of the elderly, remaining vigilant about the entry of outsiders in the locality, use of COVA App to track patients of the virus and maintaining safe distance from them. Other focus areas include create awareness on the importance of home quarantine, symptoms of flu and actions thereafter, restrictions during Lockdown 5.0 and penalties/fines in case of violations, community mobilisation to jointly fight against the pandemic.

 

Emphasis would be on recognising the threat of the virus, which continues to pose serious dangers to the people. People would be encouraged to lead by example and advise others about the precautions to be taken and report violations that come to their notices.

 

The District Administration would play a key role in this exercise by serving as the link between the government and the people. The local administration will motivate the people to remain vigilant and safe.
