Hitting out at the Centre over mismanagement of the Covid-19 pandemic, Samajwadi Party national chief Akhilesh Yadav on Friday said that the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) government was getting infamous around the world, and many countries have banned travel to India while some have issued advisories to their countrymen to leave India, tarnishing India’s image globally.
“Instead of taking the support of the opposition, the BJP government is hell bent on defaming them. Governments abroad have overcome the crisis with public support, but here the Chief Minister is trying to take all the credit himself no matter even if it puts people’s life in jeopardy,” Akhilesh said in a statement.
The former Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister said that the government was hiding the truth over shortage of medicines and the number of deaths was also being falsely presented. “The way in which there is a shortage of beds in hospitals, people are forced to run for oxygen, it is very sad. False numbers of doctors and hospitals providing advice for treatment are being printed. Oxygen suppliers have switched their phone off. There is a strong emphasis on red-tapism in the CMO office. Nobody’s is being heard anywhere, even hospitals are running out of medicines. Even then, it is being lied publicly that there is no shortage anywhere. The death figures are being fudged. The BJP is also losing their loved ones due to the life of the governmental,” he said.
