Officials told news agency —CNS that during the activity scores of free face masks were distributed among the masses which evoked better response from the locals.
They further said that people were also made aware about the precautionary measures and other steps to be taken to contain the spread of Covid-19 in the Area.
Tehsilder Ajas Naveed Ahmad along with DO Police division Ajas started the campaign on the directions of District Administration Bandipora.
