Dipen Agrawal, President, CAMIT, welcomed Banwarilal Purohit with shawl, shreephal and floral bouquet. During his introductory remarks, Agrawal said: “Mankind faced never experienced before hardship due to the outbreak of COVID-19 pandemic. Nagpur was one of the worst hit cities in India, especially during the second wave with numerous people suffering and finding it difficult to make ends meet.

Even in such testing times, the people we are felicitating today (Ramesh Jayaswal, Gopal Agrawal and Pyare Khan) found it in their hearts to fight all odds and contribute selflessly to help citizens in need. During the second wave, when there was paucity of oxygen, Ramesh Jayaswal made liquid oxygen available from his steel plant at Siltara, Chhattisgarh, free of cost for the treatment of patients.

Pyare Khan transported liquid oxygen from one city to another free of cost. Gopal Agarwal, through R Sandesh Foundation, distributed ration and medical kits and food packets to needy during first and second wave of COVID pandemic. During the second wave, his organization created a oxygen concentrator bank and provided oxygen concentrators to the needy without any charges.”

Speaking during the award ceremony, Purohit said: “It is laudable that while many other organisations too worked for the welfare of the people and provided various goods and services at cost and did not profiteer at such testing times, the felicitated people did not even recover the cost of the goods and services provided by them and altruistically worked for mitigating the harm caused during the pandemic.” Purohit further appreciated the efforts of CAMIT for acknowledging the efforts of such selfless people and said that this will inspire many more citizens to contribute in situations of emergency and social distress.
