Maharaja Ranjit Singh Punjab Technical University (MRSPTU), Bathinda, Vice Chancellor, Prof. Mohan Paul Singh Ishar kick-started the “Mission Fateh” campaign to create public awareness against Covid-19.

Prof. Ishar said Mission Fateh symbolises the resolve of the people of Punjab to halt the spread of the Novel Coronavirus through discipline, cooperation and compassion.

He said “Awareness generation is the most potent tool in combating novel corona virus. Therefore, university and its National Service Scheme (NSS) wing would undertake an array of activities to encourage people to be more careful in the coming days.”

Making an appeal to people, Prof. Ishar said, “don’t let complacency creep into you through the belief that the virus is not as harmful as it was made out to be. “Exercise all caution. It is the duty of every citizen towards, his family, his neighbours and the nation to continue to remain vigilant at all times.” 

The ‘Çorona Warriors’ Security guards and sanitary workers were honoured with Mission Fateh badges by the Vice Chancellor. 

NSS, Coordinator, Dr. Meenu said NSS volunteers would educate masses about COVID 19 by visiting door to door in various parts of city especially in localities of weaker sections. The volunteers by distributing the pamphlets convey the message of observing all precautions like wearing masks, washing hands, maintaining social distance, encouraging people to download Cova App to halt the onslaught of the virus.

Detailing other activities, university Registrar,  Dr. Jatinder Kaur said the students will also  be  apprised about main motive of Mission Fateh through their online classes.

Punjabupdate is the free media platform established with a view to uphold what the fourth estate stands for without making any tall claims. Our practice so far has been to be non-conformist rather than flowing with the tide. We know this is not the easy path but then it has always been so. It is credibility and independence that are dear to us and epitomise our core values. We will question what is wrong and espouse what we feel is the right cause, at the same time fully conscious that both are relative terms but we will go by the interpretations are rooted in the collective consciousness of the people. At the same time, we will not stake any claim to be moralists as that can the most difficult test to pass and we admit it.
