Ace Indian spinner Harbhajan who represented team India in 236 one day Internationals and 103 test matches, has provided a testing lab in Pune to help people amidst the pandemic situation. The world cup winning spinner confirmed the same by replying to a tweet of comedian and cricket talk show host Vikram Sathaye.
“Let’s do our bit to help another in this difficult times.. may waheguru keep everyone safe .. We will win this fight against Corona” replied Harbhajan to Vikram’s tweet which said “Take a bow Harbhajan singh! On behalf of #Punekars a huge thank you to you #Bhajji Hugging face we always knew you had a big heart”
Many people lauded Bhajji for his kind gesture as there are over 7 lakh active COVID-19 cases in Maharashtra at the moment, with number of active cases in the country closing in on 25 lakhs. The mobile laboratory will have the capacity to test 1,500 samples each day and will be able to provide result within four hours.
The mobile laboratory would move across the city to provide free testing to the people who belong to below poverty line while others have to pay Rs. 500 for testing. It will be easily moved in slum areas and other localities making it possible to have easy access to the testing. This will help in faster testing and results which will further help in treating.
“That’s the least we can do for each other’s” Harbhajan said while replying to sports journalist Vikrant Gupta’s gratitude tweet.
That’s the least we can do for each other’s 🙏🙏 https://t.co/vEpkrT0u6w— Harbhajan Turbanator (@harbhajan_singh) April 23, 2021

Is this your humanity???
Harbhajan singh got emotional on seeing his tweet and replied saying that he himself hails from a lower middle class family and would reply to all the people who talk sense. “I am from lower middle class and I do reply to people who talk sense.. I am one of you brother not higher class or any class .. I am just a human like you who feel the pain of another” Bhajji’s reply read.
