Hyderabad: Coming to the aid of the family of a doctor, who succumbed to Covid-19, Telangana Government has granted a Government job to the wife of the deceased COVID warrior.
The decision of the Government has been made public when Health Minister Eatala Rajender handed over a copy of Government Order (GO) granting government job as an administrative officer to the wife of the deceased doctor on Saturday.
Late Dr. G Naresh Kumar, had been serving as deputy District Medical and Health Officer (DMHO) in Bhadradri-Kothagudem. The GO for the job as an administrative officer has been issued to G Pavani, the wife of the deceased on Saturday.
Coming to the aid of the family of the late doctor, who had died fighting Covid-19, various doctors' associations with their collaborative efforts raised funds and handed over Rs 25 lakh to the divested family of the deceased last year.
The associations included the Telangana Government Doctors Association (TGGDA), Indian Medical Association (IMA)-Telangana State, Government Doctors Association unit at Gandhi Hospital, and Telangana Public Health Doctors Association (TPHDA), and several others.
Commenting on the same, the Health Minister, Eatala Rajender had earlier stated that an ex gratia of rupees 25 lakh would be provided by the state government to the COVID warriors who lose their lives fighting against the disease in the state.
As per the latest media report by The Hindu, TPHDA members have continuously pursued the Government to grant a job to late Dr. Naresh's wife. They pursued the Health Minister as well. Finally, paying heed to the requests made, the Health Minister has granted a job to Mrs. Kumar and a GO has been issued by the Government regarding the same.
