The Delhi Sikh Gurdwara Management Committee has come forward with a very thoughtful initiative and offered a helping hand to Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal.
On Monday, the Delhi Sikh Gurudwara Management Committee (DSGMC) wrote to CM Arvind Kejriwal offering the "Sarai" (inn) at the Gurudwara in Majnu Ka Tila, situated on the banks of river Yamuna, to be used as a quarantine facility for those who have tested positive and are in need of medical attention.
Gurdwaras are willing to open up their rooms for quarantine facilities. Much needed initiative. Thankful. https://t.co/P8nsA1X1NR— Kawalpreet Kaur (@kawalpreetdu) March 23, 2020
In the letter, the DSGMC also stated that all the 20 rooms in the Gurudwara are equipped with modern facilities and it also has separate rooms for medical workers.
They also said that there is ample parking in the premises and it is one of "the most safe and secure environment" to be in right now. In an interview with The Hindu, DSGMC President Manjinder Singh Sirsa said:
We offer to provide DSGMC Sarai of Gurudwara Majnu Ka Tilla Sahib as quarantine facility and provision of langar for the poor and needy people when and where it is required in Delhi.
People on Twitter are also applauding the Gurudwara authorities for extending a helping hand to fight the virus.
