Bhubaneswar: Government cannot be there in every house or street to enforce rules. It is the individual responsibility of each one of us to jointly fight this pandemic, said Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik while addressing MLAs at the sensitisation workshop on COVID-19.
Addressing the programme through video conferencing, Patnaik said, “I can proudly say that my Odia brothers & sisters as covid warriors are not just doing work for salary but working for a mission to save every odia possible.”
Let me as the Leader of the House humbly say that the dedication and sacrifice of our covid warriors is an inspiration for entire Odisha, said the Chief Minister.
“I see a Gopabandhu Das, a Madhubabu, a Maa Rama Devi, a ParvatiGiri in each one of your sacrifices. I appeal to people of Odisha to respect our warriors, to treat them with dignity and co-operate wholeheartedly,” said Patnaik.
Assuring MLAs that the State will put every resource in its command to fight this pandemic and save peoples’ lives, the Chief Minister said funds will never be a constraint when it involves protecting our people.
“Whatever best treatment is available in any part of the world, Odisha will implement the same and make it accessible to our people free of cost,” added the CM.
The CM appealed to all the MLAs take personal care of themselves and also provide inspiring leadership in their constituencies. So far, three MLAs have been affected by the disease and recovered.
