Objective of ‘Sewa Hi Sangathan’ is to help needy during pandemic, says Leishemba Sanajaoba

The Manipur Lok Sabha MP said that PM Modi wanted to celebrate the seven years of the NDA government by helping the needy at the time of pandemic instead of celebrating with jubilation.


The objective of celebrating the seven years completion of the NDA government in the country as ‘Sewa Hi Sangathan’ is to help the needy during the pandemic but not a celebration of joy and merriment, said Lok Sabha MP Leishemba Sanajaoba.

He was speaking in a voice note on Sunday while distributing essential medical kits to the Community Home Isolation Centre (CHIC) opened by Lainingthou Sang Sang Ningthou Dev at Ningombam Junior High School, Imphal West.

He said that Prime Minister Narendra Modi wanted to celebrate the seven years of the NDA government by helping the needy at the time of pandemic instead of celebrating with jubilation.

“COVID-19 second wave is more serious as compared with the first wave. To fight this pandemic, people should take extra precautionary measures. People need not panic with the virus infection as timely testing of COVID-19 and vaccination can beat the virus within 14 days. However, people with chronic diseases or comorbidities need to have regular health check-ups before getting COVID-19 infection and prevent critical conditions of health,” said Leishemba.

He continued that the state government has been taking necessary measures to prevent the spread of COVID-19. The government has been engaging doctors and nurses and providing medicines free of cost for those who are undergoing home isolation. With support from the public towards the initiatives of the government, COVID-19 can be defeated, he added.

Leishemba handed out oximeters, face masks, hand sanitisers, hand gloves, medicines and monetary assistance to the CHIC of Ningombam Junior high School.

Later, the MP distributed similar essential items to The Energetic Youth Development Organisation, Samurou, Imphal West; Kongba Youth Organisation, Kongba Nongthombam Leikai, Imphal East; Ghari Youth Club, Imphal West; and COVID Task Force of Morning Star Club, Yumnam Patlou, Imphal East.
