Palsana: About 54 workers from Haryana, Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh and Uttar Pradesh, quarantined in Palsana town, wanted to express gratitude for the arrangements made for them in the quarantine centre. Thus, they offered to colour the school since they were getting food and other materials from there. The sarpanch arranged material for the painting.
"The entire village is overwhelmed with their behaviour. All these people are perfectly healthy and their quarantine time is also over. It is joyful to see the constructive work done by the workers who have used the quarantine period beautifully," Palsana sarpanch Roop Singh said.
Jagat Singh Panwar, secretary of district legal services authority, who had visited the centre and met the workers, praised them for their initiative.
