The Arunachal Pradesh legislature (APLA) has decided to reactivate its COVID-19 room at the assembly secretariat here to assist the stranded people across the country amid the rising COVID-19 cases.
The decision to reactivate the APLA COVID-19 room was taken following the instructions of Lok Sabha speaker Om Birla, who during a virtual meeting with all the presiding officers of state assemblies on Monday had suggested fixing control rooms in state assemblies to assist the stranded migrant laborers and students.
Arunachal legislature speaker P D Sona who readily agreed with the suggestion said the APLA COVID-19 room had done an interesting job during the nationwide lockdown last year.
Later while interacting with the youths who turned up to volunteer for the cause, Sona appreciated them for his or her readiness to help the state and exuded hope that the volunteers would this year too, work dedicatedly to assist out the needy people.
“The surge within the number of coronavirus cases across the country is extremely serious and you've got to be able to tackle all types of situations,” the speaker told the volunteers while adding that the APLA COVID-19 room would assist the State Covid room in its fight against the pandemic.
Sona also suggested the volunteers twiddling my thumbs while handling people in distress.
“Do not get frustrated while handling the people. attempt to provide the maximum amount assistance as you'll to the needy and seek the help of the Stateroom whenever required,” he said.
APLA secretary Kago Habung while appreciating the volunteers for turning up in large numbers for the cause assured to increase all possible help from his side.
“All possible and required assistance would be provided from the legislature,” he said while extending his best wishes to the team.
Earlier, special secretary to speaker and room nodal officer Pema Thongchi briefed Sona on the functioning of the room.
He informed that more volunteers, including a couple of doctors, would even be joining the room soon.
Thongchi said all the volunteers would tend the specified training before they begin handling the people.
