Panaji – The most irresponsible publicity hungry Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s stupid acts have pushed the nation into Covid Death Trap. His “Diya Jalav” event has now culminated into “Burning of Pyres” all across the nation with innocent people dying of lack of medical oxygen & medicines,charged Goa Pradesh Congress Committee president Girish Chodankar.
“There are disturbing images circulating on various media platforms of hundreds of pyres burning of those who succumbed to Covid. On the other side, reports of hundreds of bodies awaiting their turn for cremation have also surfaced. This sad situation has arised only because the BJP government did not care for the welfare of common man,” he said.
Chodankar said it is most unfortunate that when people are made to run from pillar to post begging for Medical Oxygen, Medicines etc. in a desperate attempt to keep their near and dear ones alive, the BJP is still in Celebrations mode organising “Tika Utsavs” with posters displayed with photos of Prime Minister, Home Minister and BJP functionaries. The publicity hungry Chief Minister Dr. Pramod Sawant, his Cabinet Ministers and other BJP MLA’s and Functionaries are not leaving a single opportunity to click photos and seek cheap publicity from peoples sickness,” he says.
Chidanakr further states it is shocking that the Central Public Works Department issued tender on Tuesday 20th April 2021 inviting bids for construction of new common Central Secretariat for its Ministries with an estimated cost of Rs. 3408 crores.
“The same ideology of the insensitive BJP Government is carried in Goa with Goa Governments plan to construct a Memorial of former CM Manohar Parrikar spending almost 10 to 15 Crores,” stated Girish Chodankar.
The work of the Memorial is deliberately carried at a slow pace to escalate the cost which in turn will fetch higher commission & kickback to BJP, he says.
“This unwanted and non-priority wasteful expenditure is incurred when Central Government has no funds to provide free Covid Vaccines to all the States. The local BJP Government has no money to provide free treatment to Covid Patients in Private Hospitals even after the occupancy of the beds in Government Hospitals is full,” he says.
BJP Governments at the Centre as well as the States have completely failed to provide assistance and relief to the Common People. Their priorities are to promote the Crony Club of Modi-Shah duo. They are just not bothered about the plight of the poor said Girish Chodankar.
