In a bid to usher in a respite to the plagued economic strength of the public, the Sadar Gurudwara has rolled out a free service to provide medicines for all aids to the needy on Monday. Only a handful number of people came on the first day to reap the benefits of the scheme, informed Harpal Singh Jaggi, the Head of Sadar Gurudawara. This initiative will help to curb the overall spread or rise of all diseases, bettering the health graph of the city.
He further elaborated that the service is available for 2 hours daily, from 12 noon to 1 PM and then from 5 PM to 6 PM, in the evening. During these hours, any needy can come to the gurudwara and get free medicines. To procure the drug dose, people have to necessarily produce their doctor's prescription and Aadhar Card, Jaggi added. This will keep a check on the black marketing of the sewa-medicines.

Several people have lost their means of livelihood due to the pandemic, however, that should not close the avenue of medical treatment and clinical attention for them or their family,. In this regard, the Sadar Gurudwawa has also decided to provide priority medicines to coronavirus patients, so that they are not faced with other hurdles.
