Mysuru, June 15:- Devaraja Urs Prathima Pratishtapane Committee has urged the district administration to visit every house in rural areas of Mysuru district to vaccinate the residents for the coronavirus pandemic.
In a memorandum submitted to Mysuru Deputy Commissioner Dr Bagadi Gautham, the volunteers said, “We have vaccination centres only in select points in rural areas. In many areas, the vaccination has come to a standstill. This is not a good development. Given the fact that the second wave of coronavirus is wreaking havoc, people are worried. We can’t expect people to register online to get vaccinated as most of them are not educated. Government volunteers should visit all the houses to vaccinate the inmates.”
They said, “Most of the farmers depend on agriculture. As the monsoon has already arrived, the sowing season is about to commence. It is the responsibility of the district administration to safeguard the lives of the rural people. This will go a long way in curbing the spread of coronavirus.”
Samiti honorary president M Chandrashekar, president Zakir Hussain, writer Prof K S Bhagawan, former mayor Purushotham, state general convener Dairy Venkatesh, district convener A H Krishne Gowda and others were present. (MR/KS)
