Dehradun: The government of Uttarakhand has opened a free Covid testing center at the Rishikesh bus station to help pilgrims coming for the Char Dham yatra. The report would be sent to the passenger’s registered mobile number 24 hours after sample collection. The sample would be tested at AIIMS, Rishikesh.
“Char Dham yatra receives a positive response but at the same time we are making every effort to ensure that all Covid protocols are followed,” Chief Minister Pushkar Singh Dhami said on Tuesday.
The CM also announced that a sum of Rs 40 crore had been transferred as an incentive to 33,297 Anganwadi workers through a direct transfer of benefits. An incentive amount of Rs 12,000 was given to each anganwadi worker for service during the Covid pandemic.
The action was taken after the workers forcefully raised the issue and CM Dhami assured them to look into the issue. Dhami said: “Anganwadi members risked their lives during Covid-19. They are rewarded for commendable work during the Covid phase. ”
The CM claimed that during his 100-day tenure, over 300 public welfare decisions had been made and soon a major decision would be made for Anganwadi workers. “We are making constant efforts to ensure that our programs and policies reach the most remote places of the Himalayan state,” he added.
