New Delhi, May 19: The National Students Union of India (NSUI) on Wednesday launched a helpline to assist people to get themselves registered for Covid-19 vaccination. The NSUI will also provide pick and drop facility for senior residents who are staying alone in the city. NSUI national President Neeraj Kundan said that vaccination is key to win the battle against Covid.

"And as our leader Rahul Gandhi has been continuously saying that we should be ahead of the virus instead of chasing the virus, so we have launched a helpline number -- 7669886366 -- for assisting people in booking their vaccination slots." He said that NSUI activists will be providing them with the information on the documents required and the procedure for the protocols. NSUI Chhattisgarh Files FIR Against BJP Leaders Sambit Patra And Raman Singh, Claims Leaked 'COVID-19 Congress Toolkit' is Fake.

He said that the members of NSUI WhatsApp will register and book the slots for the people through WhatsApp.

"People who lack internet or smartphone facility can call on this helpline number and NSUI volunteers will help them in completing the registration process personally," Chugh added.
