Chandigarh, May 31
Leader of the Opposition Bhupinder Singh Hooda has hit out at the state government for, what he described as, “having failed to ramp up health infrastructure”.
“The BJP government did not create new health infrastructure in the past seven years. Medical colleges built during my tenure saved the lives of thousands of people during the Covid pandemic,” he said at a virtual press conference today.
Recently, the Congress leader had written to Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar. “I haven’t received the reply. The truth is the CM doesn’t have an answer to my letter. The government has failed. The Chief Minister must admit his failure,” said Hooda.
He reiterated his demand for Rs 5 lakh compensation for the families of Covid victims.
The former Chief Minister also condemned the BJP government for the “slow pace” of vaccination. “Only 20,000 persons are vaccinated every day. Vaccination is the only weapon against Covid. Hisar and Nuh are lagging behind,” he said.
