Former Chief Minister Shanta Kumar today said that the state government should immediately impose a lockdown in Kangra so that the lives of people could be saved. He added that the Covid-19 situation in the district was alarming as about 600 cases were being reported daily and most of the hospitals were full.

The BJP leader, in a press note issued here, said that in the past fortnight, the situation in Kangra had worsened. “Not only Covid cases but also the number of deaths have gone up in the district. Therefore, stringent measures are needed to tackle the grim situation and check the spread of the virus to the community level. Otherwise, the situation will go out of control like in Delhi where the health infrastructure has totally collapsed,” he added.

Shanta said Chief Minister Jai Ram Thakur should think over it without delay and people should donate liberally for Covid care services.
