- DK Dist Congress Covid-19 Helpline (Arogya Hasta) Donates 10 Pushcarts to Street Vendors sponsored by CEO of Panama Corporation Ltd & Member of Indian national Congress Vivekraj Poojary, on Friday, 27 November 2020 near Congress Bhavan, Mallikaatta, Mangaluru
Mangaluru : Prior to handing over ten pushcarts to ten street vendors as part of Dakshina Kannada District Covid-19 Helpline aka Arogya Hasta, Former MLC and Karnataka Pradesh Congress Committee (KPCC) spokesperson Ivan D’Souza addressing the media persons during a press meet held in district Congress office at Mallikatta, Mangaluru said, “The state BJP government in the state has failed in making any preparation to face the second wave of Covid-19 pandemic. Not only the elected BJP state officials, even the district administrations of undivided districts have failed to prepare to face the next wave of Covid-19. I want to ask the concerned people of BJP, how are they preparing to contain the spread of Covid-19 in the state?”
Ivan further said, “I urge the BJP-led state government to provide Rs 5 lakh compensation from the chief minister’s relief fund to BPL families of those who perished due to Covid-19 pandemic. Unfortunately, the government has not made any preparations yet, and it has also withdrawn the order to provide 50 percent of beds in private hospitals to Covid-19 patients, which is ridiculous. Sources reveal that the number of Covid-19 tests conducted by the district administration is absolutely bogus, and I suggest that the district administration should increase the number of testing”.
“It’s a shame that the government and district administration is not taking strict action against people who are not adhering to the guidelines issued to check and contain the spread of Covid-19. I also urge the government to take drastic measures to upgrade the infrastructure in PHCs and should set up rehabilitation centres to monitor health. I also demand that the state government provide Covid-19 tests/treatment free of cost to the people in the entire state, instead of charging them as it is done now” added Ivan D’souza.
