Capt seeks support of Radha Soami Satsang Beas sect against Covid

Sunday, 09 May 2021 | PNS | Chandigarh

Punjab Chief Minister Capt Amarinder Singh on Saturday sought the support of Radha Soami Satsang Beas sect in the state's fight against Covid. He also directed all the deputy commissioners to closely coordinate with authorised representatives in various branches of the sect in this regard.

In a letter to sect chief Gurinder Singh Dhillon, the chief minister urged him to make all branches available with the Radha Soami Satsang Beas for the treatment of Covid patients, along with attendants deputed for the purpose.

He also requested Dhillon to extend help in the form of medicines and other relief material for Covid-affected persons across the state. While the state government was making concerted efforts to ensure best possible medical care for Covid patients, the constantly spiralling cases warranted unstinted support from religious institutions, NGOs and other such organisations, Capt Amarinder said.

Referring to Radha Soami Satsang Beas' service in the state's battle against coronavirus last year, which had helped in stabilising the situation considerably, the chief minister said the

pandemic this year was even more virulent and life threatening, thus requiring support from the sect to tackling the virus. He pointed out that experts had warned that the next wave would be even more dangerous, which necessitated the collective efforts of all in the battle against covid.
