Chandigarh/Imphal, June 21: 

Manipuri actor and model Sushanta Rajkumar popularly known as R.K Sushant has organised the 2nd round of vaccination camp for Northeast Indians residing in Chandigarh, Panchkula and Mohali concluding the vaccination drive on 20th June 2021 with 200+ people getting vaccinated in total. The 2nd vaccination camp which had a turnout of 175 people was arranged as promised during the launch of the vaccination drive, for the people who have missed the 1st vaccination camp that was organised on 30th May 2021(Sunday) where 40 people from various parts of Northeast India were vaccinated.  
For the convenience of the people who had reached out to him for the vaccination, the actor had also arranged a bus service from his residence in Chandigarh to the vaccination site in Zirakpur, Punjab. The vaccination was organised at Zirakpurwhich had a better facility where all the Standard Operating Procedures (SoPs) could be strictly followed during the vaccination. 
“Being healthy and safe during this pandemic is the top priority for everyone. However, what about those staying away from home for work and studies? Their families are equally concerned about their health and safety too but when you are in a different place and environment you become helpless. And that is why I took up the initiative to start this vaccination drive for people from Northeast India staying in and around Chandigarh but have not been able to get vaccinated yet. I believe this is the least I can do for all the love and support the people from the region has given me,” said Sushanta on the vaccination drive. 
He further added, “I am considering the rollout of such vaccination camps across major cities in India where Northeast Indians reside. We are still monitoring the responses and will take a call basis the requirement after consulting experts to ensure that the best support can be given to the people from the region.”
Covid-19 vaccination drive for people of Northeast India in Punjab was initiated by the actor who also runs a foundation called Pink Foundation after he learned about many Northeast Indians in Punjab struggling to get vaccinated from his fans and followers. 
The vaccination drive was supported by team doctors and medical professionals from the Punjab Health Department. The two-phased vaccination drive has successfully inoculated 215 people in total who had contacted the actor from the states of Arunachal Pradesh, Assam, Manipur, Mizoram, Nagaland and Sikkim in Northeast India. This second vaccination camp will conclude the vaccination drive in Punjab.
