BJP national spokesperson Gopal Krishna Aggarwal says, on the call of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, we have established two Annapurna Community Kitchens in Noida which provided food to millions of needy. In addition to two community kitchens under the participatory model, Lotus Boulevard, Parsvnath Srishti, Silvercity, and Omaxe Spa residents also cooked food from their homes which were distributed among Noida. More than five thousand food packets were distributed.

Under the Corona Armor Project, women(including 3 transgenders) working in sewing centers made 1 lakh face masks with the help of sheets collected from various houses. Sheets were sanitized before using it. The masks are then made available to the needy by the district administration and BJP workers. Throughout the several projects, around 63 people were given employment during the lockdown.
