Raipur: Chief Minister Shri Bhupesh Baghel, while addressing the people of the state today, said that the discipline, strength and grit shown by the people, to tackle the Corona crisis, since last one month, is unique.
Chief Minister Shri Baghel said in the address that just a month before, I sought your cooperation by addressing you in a similar way, to deal with the corona virus crisis. Telling the truth, when I was appealing to you for your support for the first time to take preventive actions for spread of Corona virus, I had many apprehensions. It was not an easy task to ask the crores of people of such a large state to follow the changes in their way of life, business, conduct etc. But the discipline, strength and liveliness in dealing with the crisis, that all of you have shown up is unique.
Shri Baghel said that today Chhattisgarh has set an example before the whole country for effectively controlling the corona virus epidemic, the root being sense of sacrifice and dedication in all of you towards your family and people of the state. I thank you wholeheartedly for all this. I will always be indebted to you for this cooperation. I would like to thank all the Doctors, Health workers, District and Police Administration, Food, Women and Child Development, all the employees of Municipal Corporations, Municipalities, Public Relations Department, who worked 24 hours to deal with this crisis. I will also be grateful to our friends in media, voluntary and social organizations who supported us every moment.
Chief Minister said that in keeping the corona crisis under control in our state, our villages have played a very important role.
Chhattisgarh is the state of villages and the way our villagers voluntarily followed physical distancing and cleanliness in our villages is unique. I express my gratitude with folded hands. You will be happy to know that today Chhattisgarh is being praised all over the country. Reserve Bank of India has praised us. We are at the forefront of all states in corona virus control. This is all because of you. We are considering starting a lot of economic activities in the state from April 20. MNREGA works have started in the villages. What works can be done in your districts? Its complete information and directions are being provided to all of you. It is important for everyone to follow these guidelines.
Chief Minister Shri Baghel humbly requested the people of the state to take complete care in daily activities. He said that you all should be beware of rumours. We have controlled the corona in the state, but the danger has not yet averted. We cannot give another opportunity for spread of Corona in our state. If you all follow physical distancing, wash your hands continuously and avoid creating congestion in places, there will be no chance for Corona to spread again in the State. Once again, I thank you for your cooperation. Our solidarity will make us fully successful in our efforts.
