Bengaluru: After many teachers who were deputed to bypoll duties died due to Covid-19, state Legislative Council Chairman Basavaraj Horatti said that they must be declared as Covid warriors.

In a letter to Chief Minister BS Yediyurappa, Horatti, who represents teachers constituency in the Legislative Council for 42 years, said that for many years, teachers have been deputed for poll work, census, and other tasks, but unfortunately, the governments have not shown interest in providing them with health facilities and protection they require.

He further urged the state government to declare all teachers as Covid warriors. Vaccination must be provided to them and their family members on priority, he added.
