CM KCR woke up from ‘Kumbhakaran’s slumber’ after 3,000 Covid deaths

Shabbir accuses BJP Govt of handing over country to private sector

Shabbir  alleged that Chief Minister K. Chandrashekhar Rao has failed to prevent the damage caused due to Covid-19 pandemic in Telangana in the last one year. “CM KCR acted like ‘Kumbhkaran’ and did not wake up from his slumber despite lakhs of people getting infected with the disease and thousands losing their lives. As per the official data, as many 5,44,263 people got infected so far and 3,060 lost their lives as on May 20, 2021. However, the actual number of deaths is at least 4-5 times higher than the official figure. Instead of taking measures to save people’s lives, CM KCR concealed the real statistics of Covid cases and deaths. He is now trying to cover up his failures by misleading the people by making visits to Gandhi Hospital in Hyderabad and MGM Hospital in Warangal. Was he waiting for over 3,000 people (officially) to die due to Covid before making a visit to Gandhi Hospital?” he asked.
            The Congress leader said that the KCR Govt has utterly failed to manage the Covid-19 situation. He said that the High Court has pointed out several lapses and even negligence by the State Government in dealing with the Coronavirus pandemic. Instead of taking corrective measures, KCR only made cosmetic changes to create a positive narrative. More than people’s lives, both PM Modi and CM KCR are worried about their image, he alleged.
            He said that the mismanagement of Covid-19 pandemic has spoiled the reputation of India as an emerging global leader. The BJP and TRS Govt did not learn any lessons from the first wave of Covid and failed to ensure availability of hospital beds, oxygen, medicines and other essential items in required quantity. On one side, they are not improving the facilities in government hospitals. On the other side, they are permitting private and corporate hospitals to loot the patients by way of exorbitant and unjustified billing. He said that the situation has turned so bad that people have no money for treatment while many of them don’t even have any amount to perform the last rites. Despite the second wave creating havoc, PM Modi and CM KCR were not inclined to mend ways and prepare in advance for a possible third wave, he said.
            Earlier, as per the directives of All India Congress Committee (AICC), Shabbir Ali distributed oxygen cylinders, sanitisers, medicines and ration kits among the families affected with Covid-19. This material was provided under the aegis of Shabbir Foundation. He lauded the services being rendered by Congress leaders and workers in the Kamareddy district in helping the people ever since the outbreak of Covid-19 last year.
