Union Home Minister Amit Shah on Saturday lauded the Armed Forces for their decision to show gratitude to those fighting on the frontline against Covid-19.

"Who else can understand the importance of keeping our motherland safe than our Armed forces," the Home Minister said on Twitter.

"I am sure this decision of Armed forces will greatly boost the morale and confidence of our doctors, healthworkers, sanitisation staff, security and media personnel. We as a nation stand united to thank our Corona warriors in these testing times," Shah said in a series of tweets.

The Indian armed forces announced on Friday that they will conduct fly-pasts, light up ships at sea, display military bands and shower flower petals on hospitals on Sunday in a display of gratitude to lakhs of "corona warriors" like doctors, paramedics and police personnel.

The announcement was made by Chief of Defence Staff Gen Bipin Rawat at a press conference in presence of Navy Chief Admiral Karambir Singh, Army Chief Gen M M Naravane and Air Chief Marshal RKS Bhadauria.

"The nation stood together and showed resilience in dealing with the coronavirus pandemic. On behalf of the armed forces, we want to thank all the corona warriors -- doctors, nurses, sanitation workers, police, home guards, delivery boys and media," Gen Rawat said.
