Chandigarh, May 14
SAD leader and former MP Prof Prem Singh Chandumajra today demanded that the Congress government should hand over its Covid centres at Mohali, Ludhiana, Jalandhar, Amritsar and Bathinda to the Army’s Western Command as people’s faith in the ability of the state to run medical facilities had eroded.

Bathinda: MP Harsimrat Kaur Badal has requested Health Minister OP Soni to upscale Level-3 facilities at AIIMS by providing ventilators and additional oxygen for Covid patients.
He also asked the government to spend Rs 660 crore, which had been earmarked for the state from the National Disaster Management Fund, to provide much-needed economic relief to people.
Chandumajra said in this hour of crisis, the prime goal was to save lives. “Punjabis have been hit by a severe second wave of the pandemic and the government has been found wanting in dealing with the situation. It is best the Army Medical Corps is taken on board and handed over major Covid centres,” he said. — TNS
