The Kangra district Non-Gazetted Officers (NGO) Federation has appealed to Chief Minister Jai Ram Thakur to declare government employees, who had lost their lives while discharging their duties, as Covid warriors.
Ashwani Kumar, Kangra district president of the federation, in a statement here today, said Mohinder Singh, a panchayat secretary of Dharamsala development block, and Raman Kumar, a PWD employee posted at Kangra, had recently died of Covid while discharging their duties.
He urged the state government to immediately give financial assistance to the bereaved families and a job to a member.
He also demanded the deployment of security personnel at the vaccination centres, which are witnessing a huge rush.
