The Bharatiya Janata Party state president Madan Kaushik has said that the opposition should cooperate in tackling the pandemic instead of playing politics over Covid. He averred that the situation is being monitored 24 hours at every level by the government to prevent inconvenience to the public.
Kaushik said that Covid is a pandemic affecting the whole world. “The state government is making all efforts to tackle the situation in Uttarakhand. The number of beds has been increased when the existing number of beds fell short in hospitals. The stock of Remdesivir injections has also been increased while provision has been made for strong action against those indulging in black marketing,” he said. Kaushik pointed out that compared to other states, the recovery rate is better in Uttarakhand. Instead of leveling allegations, the Congress should work to raise awareness in the public, he said. The BJP state president further said that Covid is a pandemic but its treatment is not to create fear. Following the Covid treatment rules with patience is the solution. He said, “We need to cooperate with each other to defeat Covid, not find faults in the system to spread fear. There is no shortage of oxygen and other necessary equipment in the state.
The chief minister Tirath Singh Rawat is regularly monitoring the relief works. From May 1, all those aged above 18 years will be vaccinated. The cooperation of all is necessary to defeat Covid,” he stressed. Kaushik also added that the BJP workers are busy serving the people amidst the pandemic.
