ormer India midfielder Renedy Singh is helping his home state Manipur in its battle against the Covid-19 pandemic and is busy arranging oxygen cylinders. This footballer has been known for his ability to help the team in difficult times and his habit has not changed even after almost a decade of playing for India for the last time. All India Football Federation (AIFF) quoted Renedy as saying, "This is a difficult time for all." Our frontline workers are constantly working tirelessly. At this time we should go ahead and help them in whatever way possible. "
The former captain of the Indian football team said, "We have friends from different fields like doctors, police officers, IAS officers, businessmen - all helping."
He said, "Along with the people of Manipur present abroad, the people of Manipur and the whole country are going ahead and contributing as much as possible. We are trying to buy oxygen cylinders and hand them over to those who need them, especially the frontline workers. "
The situation in the northeastern states is not very good and the death toll is increasing continuously here. The geographical location of the state is also increasing difficulties.
"Manipur is cut off slightly from other places due to the epidemic," said Renedy. Our government is trying its best but all things take time. We have three oxygen plants in the state but their capacity is not very high. Hospitals are also not able to increase the number of beds with oxygen facilities. "
