Launching the distribution by handing over the relief assistance to a few artists at the Ramakrishna Math premises at Sivaji Nagar here on May 8, the Collector, M.Govinda Rao called upon the public to cooperate with the government in controlling the second wave of novel coronavirus.

Stating that the government had sanctioned disbursement of ₹ 2000 per family card this month, the Collector lauded the Ramakrishna Math and other organisations for coming forward to share the burden of the government in ensuring normal life of the people who are in need of such assistance to tide over the financial crisis triggered by the pandemic situation.
