Raipur. In response to the tweets and statements of BJP leaders, State Congress Communications President Shailesh Nitin Trivedi said that states with an increasing rate of COVID infection need assistance. Now is the time to fight the epidemic, but the Union Health Minister and the BJP are more interested in fighting the Government of Chhattisgarh.
Shailesh Nitin Trivedi has said that last night Chhattisgarh received only ten-lakh COVID vaccines. Chhattisgarh needs more than that because the vaccine is administered in two doses four-to-eight weeks apart. During this time, instead of helping Chhattisgarh, the Union Health Minister is tweeting. Assembly and Lok Sabha elections are still far away, so BJP should shake off the opportunistic mindset and work in the public interest. They should avoid political vendetta during the pandemic.
Opposition leader, Brijmohan Agrawal, advised the State Government to form a committee, including the opposition, to deal with the COVID. The President of the State Congress Communication Department said that this applies to the Central Government; Whose ridiculous unilateral decisions have affected the country. During the first lockdown, about six-lakh labourers from Chhattisgarh were stranded away from home with no support. Today, because of the new mutant variety of the coronavirus, the number of cases in the state are rising. Given that, Chhattisgarh should get assistance from the Centre, but BJP is busy playing politics.
Shailesh Nitin Trivedi declared that Chief Minister Bhupesh Baghel's demand to reduce the age of vaccination from 45 to 18 years is correct. COVID infection is rampant even among the youth, which eventually affects the whole family. The Congress Party fully supports this, the central government should accept it immediately.
