Former Indian captain Sourav Ganguly has been actively doing his bit to help the country deal with the COVID-19 pandemic. On Friday, the southpaw donated two oxygen concentrators for those in need of the facility in the Darjeeling district after CPM leader Asok Bhattacharya requested the BCCI President for the same. The CPM youth volunteers, who are aiding the people in need through various ways, will use the concentrators across the district and will provide oxygen to those in need free of cost.
Speaking about Sourav Ganguly's donation for corona, Bhattacharya said that earlier this month, he had spoken with the BCCI President and requested him to provide the equipment to aid those in need in the Darjeeling district. He added that the former cricketer was busy earlier which is why he could not respond immediately. However, Bhattacharya revealed that it was on last Tuesday, that Ganguly called him from Mumbai and asked me if he could send somebody to Calcutta to collect two O2 concentrators.
The former Siliguri MLA stated that two of their members went to his residence in Calcutta and collected the medical equipment from him which reached Siliguri on Saturday. He also said that they will provide oxygen to people free of cost. The CPM leader reckoned that they are overwhelmed by the gesture shown by Ganguly and reiterated that the BCCI President had helped them on many occasions in the past as well.
