New Delhi:

Congresswoman Priyanka Gandhi Vadra said today that the fight against COVID-19 in Uttar Pradesh was in bad shape, but Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath evaded responsibility by making “childish statements” as calling it weakest virus of the century.

The Secretary General of Congress has repeatedly criticized the state government response to the COVID-19 crisis, alleging that he was engaged in propaganda instead of coping with the coronavirus pandemic.

“The chief minister and his officials have repeatedly stated that they have a sufficient number of beds and that all is well in the fight against the coronavirus, but by looking at the state of Lucknow in these media reports, it will be understood that the policy of hiding the inadequate preparation of the UP government, mismanagement and weaknesses, has led to this bad situation, “said Priyanka Gandhi in a tweet and reported media reports about the long wait of beds for COVID patients at Lucknow.

“The patients are worried, the health workers are worried, but the head of government evades responsibility by making childish declarations like” it is the weakest virus of the century, “” she said.

Marking a video of rainwater falling from the ceiling of a coronavirus service in a Bareilly hospital, Priyanka Gandhi said that “a waterfall had broken out in a COVID-19 service”.

Addressing an online yoga workshop last month, Mr. Adityanath said that you should not be afraid of the coronavirus.

“It is the weakest virus of the century, only the transmission of this virus is rapid. You must protect yourself from this infection, especially children, the elderly and those who already suffer from an illness are the most vulnerable to this infection, “he said. had said.

Uttar Pradesh has reported 24 more deaths from the coronavirus, bringing the number of deaths to 1,108, while the number of infections has reached 47,036 with 1,673 new cases, an official said on Saturday.
