Karnataka health minister Dr K Sudhakar on Sunday thanked Prime Minister Narendra Modi for introducing a quota for children of Covid-19 warriors in medical and dental colleges under the central pool.

"Thank you PM @narendramodi Ji for introducing a new quota for 'Wards of COVID-19 Warriors' in MBBS and BDS seats under the central pool. It is a great honour for the sacrifice of #CovidWarriors who selflessly dedicated their lives for the service of the nation in these difficult times," Sudhakar tweeted.

Announcing the quota in recognition of the service rendered by Covid-19 warriors during the pandemic, the Centre said it would mention the reservation in the guidelines for selection and nomination of candidates for MBBS seats for the financial year 2020-21.
