Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot has taken the Opposition and public together to begin a mass movement against COVID-19. On Gandhi Jayanti, Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot decided to begin a mass movement to ensure that social distancing is maintained, masks are worn and other COVID-19 norms are followed.
He has urged Opposition party leaders including former Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje to support and seek people’s help to make the movement a success.
The ministers in his cabinet have also been asked to create awareness in districts about wearing masks, following social distancing and the importance of avoiding crowded places.
Recently, Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot interacted with leaders of opposition parties and sought their feedback on the movement before commencing it.
The Opposition parties appreciated Ashok Gehlot’s communication and extended support to him. Vasundhara Raje spoke about creating awareness videos on social media so that more and more people from the state could connect and join the efforts. The government will also distribute nearly one crore masks.
No mask no entry movement
Ashok Gehlot also held discussion and review meetings with well-known health experts of the country including Dr S.K Sareen, Dr Devi Shetty and Dr Naresh Trehan.
The experts stressed on the continuous use of masks and suggested implementing the “No Mask, No Entry” policy in Rajasthan to contain the spread of the disease.
Ashok Gehlot immediately implemented it with posters urging people to support the government in the campaign.
During his last tenure, Gehlot had launched a free medicine scheme in Rajasthan, which till date has proved to be a blessing for a lot of families who cannot afford expensive medicines or treatments.
The scheme not only benefited many citizens but also garnered international applause as well.
