Following the ‘Solidarity Initiative’ announced by Punjab Director General of Police (DGP) Dinkar Gupta, residents in the city today enthusiastically participated in the campaign to condemn the attack on frontline workers, including cops, doctors and nurses. Within minutes of the flagging off of the unique initiative #MainBhiHarjitSingh across social media, pictures and videos started surfacing on the virtual world to honour the bravery and calmness of SI Harjit Singh whose hand was chopped off by Nihangs earlier this month in Patiala. On the insistence of the DGP, even police personnel wore a badge of Harjit’s name and posted on social media. Joining the nationwide campaign to pay tributes to the sacrifice of SI Harjit, Neeraj Verma (17), a local resident, said it was unfortunate that the cop on ground duty had to go through such an ordeal. After uploading his picture on his Instagram account, he expressed grief and stated that he condemn the attack on frontline warriors who are tirelessly working to fight Covid. Another resident Archana (24) said after the brutal attack, Harjit had definitely emerged as the symbol of the nation’s fight against coronavirus. Phagwara: Satnampura SHO Usha Rani on Monday wore a name plate of SI Harjit to pay tributes to the brave cop. Police personnel in Kapurthala district, headed by SSP Satinder Singh, on Monday came out in support of the Patiala SI, sending a nationwide message of salute to Covid warriors. The SSP said the Punjab Police were saluting not only the bravery of the SI but also saying thanks to doctors and their teams for saving Harjit’s hand and his life. She said ‘Mai Bhi Harjit Singh’ was not only a campaign but a feeling of solidarity towards our fellow officer who was attacked in the line of duty.
