Government hiding fatality count, claims Selja

Tribune News Service

Chandigarh, November 23

State Congress president Kumari Selja on Monday blamed the BJP-JJP government for failing to control Covid spread and alleged that the actual number of casualties was not being revealed.

She said the pace of Covid spread in the state was increasing again, which was a matter of concern. She claimed that this was due to failure and negligence of the government.

In a statement, Selja said despite repeated warnings by the Congress, no arrangements were made by the government to deal with the pandemic, as a result of which more than 17,000 cases and 155 deaths were reported in a week.

She said schools had been reopened by the government without complete preparations, due to which more than 300 students and more than 35 teachers were infected.

She said the failure of the government and negligence had led to the risk of Covid infection reaching children, parents and teachers.

She said there were reports that figures of deaths were hidden, which was of greater concern.
