Improve health infra during lockdown: Hooda to govt

Chandigarh, May 2

Leader of Opposition Bhupinder Singh Hooda has said the state government should improve the medical infrastructure during the seven-day lockdown announced today.

“The government has failed to provide Covid patients with beds, oxygen and medicines. Every day, people die because hospitals are short on medical oxygen,” he said in a statement here today.

He questioned the Khattar government for its double standards. “On one hand, it claims that there is no shortage of medical oxygen and, on the other, it submits otherwise in the High Court.”

Hooda offered the Opposition’s help to the state government to curb the spread of the virus. “This is the time to rise above politics, and unite and fight the pandemic,” he said.

He appealed to the public not to venture out unless it was very important. “Everyone will have to exercise restraint. People should avoid large gatherings at weddings and funerals,” he added. — TNS
