Meanwhile, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal wrote to Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday, requesting that the country’s highest civilian award, the Bharat Ratna, be presented to all doctors, nurses, and paramedics who assisted the public during the COVID-19 pandemic this year.
It will be a fitting tribute to doctors who have passed away, he said.
Doctors, nurses, and paramedical professionals should receive the Bharat Ratna this year, according to Kejriwal’s letter to the Prime Minister.
“During the struggle against Corona, many doctors and nurses gave their life. It will be a true homage to them if we honour them with the Bharat Ratna. Thousands of doctors and nurses volunteered their services without regard for their own safety or the safety of their families. There is no greater way to appreciate and honour them than by bestowing the Bharat Ratna “In Hindi, he penned the letter.
