July 1, 2020

Free fruits to the citizens of Tripura will be provided by the state government, informed Chief Minister Biplab Deb on Wednesday.

The Chief Minister informed that pineapple and lemon juice would be provided to citizens at 25 places in the state on every Saturday.

The aim behind this exercise is to boost the immunity of the people of the state so that their fight against COVID-19 gets stronger.

"With the aim to boost the immunity of the people of the state, the Tripura government has decided to provide pineapple and lemon juice free of cost at 25 places across the state," Deb said.

He was speaking at a programme organised at Nazrul Kalakshetra Auditorium on the occasion of National Doctors' Day on Wednesday.

"From 12 pm to 4 pm every Saturday, pineapple and lemon juice for free would be provided to the people of the state at 25 locations," Deb said.

"No one needs to pay a single penny and one can eat as much as one wants to. However, no one will be allowed to take anything home," he further said.

"You are required to be at the stall and consume,' Deb reiterated speaking at length about the importance of Vitamin C for our health.

"Vitamin C helps in boosting the immunity," the Tripura CM further said.

Deb further informed that the government will also help the farmers by funding them so that they can grow a variety of fruits for the benefits of the people.

The campaign has been named as Mukhyamantri Corona Prevention Campaign and Deb said that the pineapple cultivators would be immensely benefitted from this scheme.

He further informed that a number of Self Help Groups will be entrusted the responsibility to procure pineapple and lemon from the farmers across the state.

He said these farmers have been listed by the state government.

"The fruits would be distributed in the cities within a week," Deb added.
