Daijiworld Media Network – Mangaluru (DV)

Mangaluru, Jun 10: Non-Resident Indian Kannadigas have appreciated the move of deputy commissioner (DC) Dr Rajendra K V for directing the concerned authorities to ensure vaccination of NRIs in the district.

In a video conference organised by the Indian Red Cross Society along with the DC on May 30, several NRIs expressed their problems. NRIs in the video conference stated, “There is a requirement of vaccines for the NRIs. There are several people who are working abroad. Several people from the district are working in the gulf. Those NRIs who returned back to India on leave, cannot go back without availing two doses of the vaccine. Several NRIs are not getting vaccines at the appropriate time. And hence, they are in fear of losing their jobs.”

The DC who took initiative directed the NRIs to register their names and vaccinated 402 people in collaboration with Red Cross Society in the first phase. Later, 500 people were vaccinated. Now, the DC has directed the NRIs to undergo vaccination in all the centers from June 14.

Efforts of the DC and Yathish Baikampady of Dakshina Kannada district Indian Red Cross Society were lauded by Kannadigas Federation convener Hidayath Addoor, Oman Pravasi Kannadigara Seva Vedike's Shashidhar Shetty, Dubai advocate Sunil AR, Qatar NRI Association's Abdul Monu, Bunt Sangh Qatar founder president Ravi Shetty, Saleem Althaf, Bearys Welfare Forum's Abdula Madumule, Karanataka Sangha Dubai general secretary Daya Kirodiyan and other association leaders.
