Armed forces conduct flypast for corona warriors, choppers shower petals

Gratitude expressed by all 3 wings of Armed forces

New Delhi – The Indian Air Force on Sunday conducted flypast across India to show gratitude to the thousands of healthcare workers battling the coronavirus pandemic.
The flypast was an effort by the country’s armed forces to honour doctors, paramedics, sanitation staff, police and other frontline workers battling the virus.

The IAF choppers and jets, including Mig-29, Sukhoi-30 and Jaguar, conducted flypasts and Army bands played patriotic tunes outside medical buildings in most districts across the country from east to west and north to south.

The armed forces showered petals at the Goa medical college, SNM hospital in Leh, Jaipur in Rajasthan, Rajpath and police memorial in Delhi, Sukhna lake in Chandigarh, Srinagar’s Dal Lake, Lucknow in Uttar Pradesh, Vijayawada in Andhra Pradesh, Panchkula hospitals in Haryana and the Kalinga Institute of Medical Sciences in Bhubaneswar. Some of the hospitals in Delhi are Sir Ganga Ram Hospital, Rajiv Gandhi Super Speciality Hospital and Deen Dayal Upadhyay Hospital.

The medical fraternity and other corona warriors were seen assembled outside the Covid-19 hospitals and other government buildings putting hands on their chest to show honour to the respect to the efforts of Armed forces.

The gesture of thanks started with laying of flowers by the three service chiefs at the police memorial in Delhi in the morning to honour police personnel deployed for enforcement of the nationwide lockdown.
