Kejriwal said: “Late Dr. Anas was hard working and serving the people of Delhi at GTB hospital since the time Corona emerged in Delhi. While serving the patients and being on his duty, he succumbed to COVID on 9th May 2021 in a matter of few hours. Many Corona warriors like Dr. Anas are on the frontline helping the people of Delhi, and it is because of people like Anas that we are able to save lives and the Delhi government is able to fight the Corona pandemic. I was talking to his father right now, and when I assured him of any help that he might need in the future, he said that he and his family does not need anything, his only desire is that he and his family could serve the nation. At a time when they have lost their young son 10 days back, who was only 26 years old, they only want to serve the nation despite such a crisis in their family. I salute his thoughts. We will also stand beside them in any assistance that they shall need in the future.”
Late Dr. Anas’s father, Dr. Mujahidul Islam, said: “Like my son, Anas sacrificed his life serving the people of the nation, I want that my other children to also grow up to serve the nation. Despite my son not being amongst us, I am relieved that Kejriwal and the Delhi government have helped us in this time of distress. I thank him for helping the people of Delhi and hope that he keeps working for the people of Delhi.”
