Covid-19 in Tamil Nadu: Madurai crematorium workers donate Rs 20,000 to CM Public Relief Fund | Chennai News – Times of India

MADURAI: Employees of Moolakarai crematorium in Madurai have donated Rs 20,000 towards the Chief Minister’s Public Relief Fund to fight Covid-19. They handed over a cheque to Madurai district collector Aneesh Sekhar when he conducted a surprise inspection at the crematorium on Sunday.
The collector and corporation commissioner S Visakan conducted an inspection at Thathaneri and Moolakarai crematoriums to check basic amenities and facilities available for the public. The one in Thathaneri is directly run by Madurai Corporation while the Moolakarai crematorium is run by the Rotary Madurai Mid-Town Community Trust on behalf of the corporation.
The officials were surprised at the gesture of the employees as they came forward to donate a part of their salary for the public cause. While the collector appreciated their generosity, the commissioner told them that he was indebted to them.
K Mathan, past president of Rotary Madurai Mid-Town and chairman of the crematorium project, said the employees had planned the contribution and mobilised the fund four days ago. While they were planning to visit the collector, he himself made a surprise visit. They handed over a cheque to him after getting his permission. They had made a similar contribution during the cyclone Gaja, Mathan said.
The officials appreciated the upkeep of the facility and made a few suggestions for improvement. They have assured them of improving things pointed out by them.
There are 12 employees at the crematorium.
The crematoriums are functioning round the clock at present enabling relatives to dispose of bodies of Covid-19 infected people at the earliest.
