Mysore/Mysuru: With the COVID-19 pandemic continuing to harrow everyone, especially the frontline workers tasked to mitigate the crisis, in a commendable gesture worthy of emulation, NCC Girl Cadets from Mysuru had come forward with the initiative of locally stitched high quality pleated cotton face masks for District authorities. 

On May 13, the first lot of masks was handed over to Mysuru Deputy Commissioner (DC) Abhiram G. Sankar. The work didn’t stop here; the Cadets and Girl Cadet Instructors continue to stitch masks to contribute to the district health workers and the needy wherever required.

As per PMO’s directions for ‘Mask India Movement’, 3 Karnataka Girls Battalion NCC, Mysuru, took initiative of stitching masks.

Pooja, Cdt Ranjitha and Cdt Deeksha, along with the lady instructors of the Battalion GCI K. Divya Suresh, GCI Lekshmi Das, GCI K.P. Divya, all from Mysuru, have joined the effort.

    How can a MP be so irresponsible ??
    He is not wearing Mask when he cannot maintain social distance !
    Does this sold out media do not see this as violation and what legal action to be taken ?
    why police not latti charge him like they do to common public ?? Your latti works only on poor ??

    Ministers like this fat minster,: all these ministers are so fat and look too well fed, and social distancing and masks are not for them. No one also will dare to ask the old goat Deve Gowda to observe social distancing.
    In case the citizens of independent have not recognised: “It is One Rule for You, and a Different Rule for Politicians, and Saffron Clad Seers! ”
    If you are poor, Very Tough Luck Indeed!
