Raipur: During Zero Hour, Bilaspur MLA Shailesh Pandey had questioned regarding the death toll in the second wave of the Corona pandemic and the number of patients admitted in private hospitals. To answer the question MLA Shailesh Pandey said in the house
"Minister, the information has not been given in your answer correctly. The information you have given in this regard is quite different, and what I have received separately from the department is something else."
On this issue, Dr. Mahant gave the comment with ease –
"Your topic is wide so you should meet the minister in the room and get updated with full information.."
MLA Shailesh Pandey immediately agreed to this. Then senior member Ajay Chandrakar quipped and said "The Minister Singhdeo is upset since yesterday. you are his best companion so you should not bother him”.
On his comment, MLA Shailesh Pandey replied very briefly and said
"I am not killing him politically". After Pandey’s serious reply there was silence in the house for a few moments.
