Mumbai-based businessman Ketan Rawal has provided his vanity vans to the Mumbai Police free of cost to help policemen on the front line rest and eat as they serve during the partial COVID-19 lockdown in the metropolis.
Speaking to news agency ANI, Ketan Rawal said, “I am providing these vanity vans to the police personnel so that they can take rest, eat food and use the washroom while on duty.”
“These vanity vans are equipped with a bed, washroom, dressing table, and an AC, similar to a bedroom,” he added.
Elaborating on how he is helping the health care workers, Mr Rawal said, “I have provided three vanity vans, which have three rooms each, to the COVID-19 care centres for doctors and nurses who are working round the clock, for 24 hours.”
“The vans are sanitised once every day in the morning,” he added.
Mr Rawal further said that he is ready to provide his vanity vans to hospitals as well. “I am also ready to provide my vans to hospitals to save peoples’ lives provided COVID-infected patients get the required treatment,” he added.
So far, he has provided 12 of the 50 vans he owns to the police and health care workers.
