Nagpur: After individuals and NGOs, even the private sector of the city is now coming out to help poor citizens and migrants who have been hit many times by the national lockdown. Solar Explosives announced Rs1 crore aid though, Credai, the builder’s body also donated Rs10 lakh.

Manish Nuval from Solar Explosives handed over a check for Rs1 Crore to Minister Nitin Raut’s guardian at the collector’s office on Friday. Similarly, Sunil Dudalwar and Gaurav Agrawal of Credai sent the Minister a request for Rs10 lakh. Divisional Commissioner Sanjeev Kumar, police commissioner BK Upadhyay, collector Ravindra Thakre and additional municipal commissioner Ram Joshi attended.

Earlier, Raut held a review meeting with all senior officials on preparations at the Collectorate to tackle the danger of Covid-19 in the region. A coordinating panel under the collector was set up to ensure that the poor and vulnerable received vital items such as food during the curfew time. The Minister called on interested NGOs, businesses, private organisations and individuals to come forward to support the poor at this time of crisis and to contact the collector.

Raut submitted a request to the state government to allocate Rs25 Lakh under the MLA funds to the area, and the chief secretary showed a positive intention. He promised that food and shelter will be given to those who are in dire straits due to curfew. “And those from other nations, who are stranded on the borders, will be provided with food. Camps would be set up to take care of them. Those that do not get feed for animals due to lockdown will be given assistance before traffic restrictions are in effect, “he said.

Calling all citizens to strictly observe the curfew, the Minister said that poor people who did not fall below the poverty line (BPL) would be provided with rice, flour, tea, oil, chili salt, sugar and other necessary commodities during the curfew era.

“Because people are prohibited to venture outside because of curfew, regular wagers and vulnerable people will suffer the most. The district administration has already begun to supply food grains and other products through the Public Distribution System (PDS) shops. Those who don’t get it will be helped by NGOs working with the city police and NMC staff, “he said.
