Blame State Govt for Ganjam Covid spike: BJP

Tuesday, 28 July 2020 | PNS | BRAHMAPUR

The State Government has utterly failed in fighting, containing and managing Covid-19 pandemic in Ganjam, said former district president and senior BJP leader of BJP Kanhu Charan Pati here.

According to Government estimate, more than 2.5 lakh migrant workers have already returned to Ganjam district that subsequently led to the change of Ganjam district from Green zone to Red zone as well as spiraling rise in number of Corona affected patients, for which the credit goes to Government, Pati alleged.

Pati further alleged that, the migrant workers after returning to their home district completely became directionless and passing through a state of sheer chaos, confusion and are in mental stress. After becoming jobless, they are unable to decide their future. As a result, more than 3,000 returnees have reportedly left their home district recently and have gone to other States in search of jobs to maintain their livelihood.

In spite of such a huge number of returnees leaving the district, neither the Labor Department of the Government nor the district administration has any information with them which is suffice to indicate the callousness of the State Government, Pati  alleged. If the Government has no resource to provide employment or livelihood to these poor migrant workers, why it brought back them, Pati questioned.

Pati further alleged that, number of Covid-19 death toll number in Ganjam provided by the district administration is much lower than that of actual death toll.
