"My earnest request to CM @capt_amarinder Ji - More than 300 people of Punjab are here at Gurdwara Majnu Ka Tila Sahib. They need help from @PunjabGovtIndia to reach their homes. It would be a disaster if any one of them is COVID positive. Kindly respond & take immediate action" he had tweeted.
The Gurdwara had earlier offered to provide quarantine and isolation facilities for the treatment of coronavirus-affected people and allotted 12 neat and sanitised rooms along with round-the-clock service to cater to the needs of the patients.
