By Correspondent

UDALGURI, April 20 - Amid the coronavirus outbreak, many people and non-government organisations are stepping out to help the needy and poor people by distributing food and essential items.

A senior journalist of Tangla town in Udalguri district distributed food to 20 needy families, while an Anganwadi worker came forward to help people in need.

Journalist Bapan Sarma visited the families in Bhuyankhat area of Udalguri district and distributed rice, lentils, potatoes, salt, mustard oil, vegetables and soaps. Besides distributing the food items, Sarma appealed to the people to obey the lockdown and adopt preventive measures to tackle the dreaded coronavirus.

Meanwhile, a newspaper hawker of Tangla town, Krishna Roy, also came forward to contribute to the poor and needy, and distributed rations and vegetables among a number of families.

Anganwadi worker Ritamoni Talukdar of Tangla town also distributed rations at the doorsteps of more than 40 downtrodden families. �I attempted to reach out to the families of daily-wage earners who are living in hunger. Though everyone has come forward, there are many families where the helping hand of the government has not reached,� she said.

It is to be mentioned here that most of the government employees responded positively to the clarion call of the government to help the poor during the lockdown.
