N Uttam Kumar Reddy calls upon party cadre to help Covid patients in Telangana | Hyderabad News

HYDERABAD: Telangana Pradesh Congress Committee president and Nalgonda MP N Uttam Kumar Reddy on Saturday appealed to the party leaders and workers to immediately take up relief works on a large scale for the Covid patients in the state.
All India Congress Committee president Sonia Gandhi and former president and MP Rahul Gandhi have instructed the party leaders and workers to help the Covid patients in view of the prevailing crisis arising out of the Covid pandemic.
Holding the Central and state government responsible for the present severe crisis, Uttam said that Covid second wave has been spreading in the country with lightning speed due to lack of their foresight.
The central and state governments did not heed the advice of the scientists, health experts and opposition leaders on the spread of the second wave of Covid in the country and neglected the preventive measures.
Criticising the BJP and TRS governments at the Centre and in the state respectively for fishing in the troubled waters by holding elections during the pandemic period, he said every day over 4 lakh new positive cases have been recorded and over 4000 are dying.
Due to the election politics of BJP and TRS Coronavirus has spread with lightning speed endangering the lives of crores of people.
Ridiculing the statements of chief secretary Somesh Kumar that Covid situation was under control in the state, Uttam said that there was no similarity between the statistics being stated by the government and the actual numbers.
The number of positive cases and deaths has been under reported. The state government has been misleading the people by reducing the number of tests thereby showing less number of cases. There are doubts over the number of deaths being stated by the government. They may be much higher than claimed.
Uttam Kumar Reddy made it clear that the Central and state governments have miserably failed in controlling the Covid in the country and in the state. Due to this Covid patients were unable to get beds in the hospitals and thousands are losing lives because of lack of oxygen.
“Apart from this, severe shortage of Remdesivir injections and ventilators is taking a toll on the lives of Covid patients. Taking this as an advantage, the private medical mafia has been fleecing the people with lakhs of rupees,” Uttam alleged.
He appealed that in these testing times all the leaders and workers of Congress should be with the people and help them to get oxygen, Remdisivir injections and beds in hospitals. Congress workers and leaders should create confidence among the people in these hours of crisis. Congress leaders and workers should strive to come to the rescue of the people.
