Hyderabad: Telangana BJP chief Spokesperson K Krishna Saagar Rao condemned the negligence of the TRS government in dealing with COVID-19 pandemic in Telangana.
In a statement on Wednesday, he said that it is reprehensible and irresponsible on the part of both the Health Minister and the Chief Minister, because of which the State is on its way to top the charts of Covid-19 infection and death rate in India.
He said as per Arogya Setu data, and going by the ratio of the number of infected who are quarantined in the State, to the rate of infection, India-in –pixels, a statistical agency has rated Telangana State as the second most risky State for 'community transmission in India'.
Rao said Delhi tops this list with 143 percent risk of community transmission followed by Telangana State in the second at 122 per cent.
The BJP leader said that his party demands an answer for this from CM KCR and the State Health Minister Eatala Rajender as to what are the measures taken by the State government to contain the rapid community transmission of Covid-19 in the State. Going by the rate of new COVID19 cases being reported daily, if the TRS government continues to behave irresponsibly, BJP is certain that the State is headed towards a massive public health disaster, he added.
He asked the Chief Minister to call for an all-party meeting immediately, to take the opposition parties into confidence, and prepare a plan of action to contain Covid-19 spread in the State.
