Rajnath asks Armed Forces to help states fight pandemic

Apr 20, 2021 14:26 IST | By Editorji News Desk

As India reels under a massive spike in coronavirus cases, Defence Minister Rajnath Singh has asked the army to extend assistance to state administrations to deal with the pandemic. Singh has also urged the Army to help the states in creation of additional capacities to treat Covid-19 patients.

PTI has reported that following the minister's communication to Army Chief Gen MM Naravane, it was decided that the Army would consider offering treatment to civilians in its medical facilities.

It has been decided that the senior-most army officer in a state would get in touch with the Chief Minister to understand the requirement and take forward the process.
