Seth said: “The health machinery has completely failed in dealing with the challenge posed by the second wave of the pandemic. I have been writing letters to chief minister Hemant Soren, urging the government to take the necessary steps. But after I saw that people are dying in front of hospitals, I decided to provide assistance to people in distress.”
“There are many bachelors, elderly people and students in the state capital who are getting infected and are helpless as they have no one else at home. So I have decided to provide them food at their door steps,” Seth said.
“Those testing positive can send their Covid-19 reports to WhatsApp numbers 9431352397, 6203009003 and 9835718119 and place a request for food to be delivered at their doorstep. The patients also need to provide their full address, so that the required items can be provided at the earliest,” Seth said.
In a veiled attack at Soren, Seth said that he has been urging the state government to utilize resources that are available with the railways and the various public sector undertakings. “I wrote a letter to the CM on April 7 and had suggested him to use the isolation coaches of the railways and to expand isolation centre at Khelgaon with the help of the CCL. But nothing has been done on that front yet,” Seth said.
Meanwhile, state BJP President Deepak Prakash also expressed his concern over the increasing number of cases in the state. Prakash convened an online meeting of all district presidents, MPs, MLAs on Friday evening to discuss the challenges faced by the state and to chalk out a relief strategy for the people.
