I heartily congratulate Sri B.S. Yediyurappa, Hon’ble chief minister of Karnataka and Dr.K. Sudhakar Minister for Health and Family Welfare for successfully conducting the vaccination programme in the state to the appreciation of all stakeholders. With the momentum and efficiency at their best, I have no doubt that the state would be at the forefront of the vaccination drive, shortly.
In this context, it is highly necessary to consider all the teachers, from UG to PG, as Corona Warriors and provide vaccination facility to them on priority; this is highly essential since the state is at the very door steps of opening all the educational institutions and at this juncture it is necessary that the teachers should be primed with all support of which vaccination is a priority. This responsibility lies with the state government and all necessary help needs to be extended to teachers to perform to their full potential.
I request the Hon’ble chief minister to direct all the concerned ministries (health and education) to consider teachers as Corona Warriors to take appropriate action immediately.
