Karnataka Deputy Chief Minister C N Ashwathnarayan has appreciated Ajith-mentored team Dhaksha, which has been involved in disinfecting large areas to fight the spread of Covid-19 since March.
The team, which was initially carrying out the work in Tamil Nadu using drone, is now doing it in the neighbouring State of Karnataka too, winning the praise of many there.
Taking to Twitter, Ashwathnarayan posted: “Kudos to Team #Dhaksha, mentored by filmstar #AjithKumar, for developing a way to sanitize large areas against COVID-19 via disinfectant drones. Time and again, technology has proven to be critical in the fight against #COVID-19! @sugaradhana.”
The team from Anna University had participated in National and International level UAV challenges and won awards too. More than a year ago,Ajith made a visit to MIT, one of the prestigious higher educational institutions in the country, and interacted with students of Team Daksha, who won the second place at the World UAV Medical Express Challenge 2018 in Australia.
Ajith spent a good amount of time with the students and posed for photographs with them. Ajith, who had earlier mentored the students, also operated the drone Daksha at the campus. Ajith is currently busy with ‘Valimai’ directed by H Vinoth and the shoot has come to a halt due to coronavirus outbreak.
