All India Minoriy Front (AIMF) president Dr SM Asif on thursday accused the Bharatiya Janata Party led Central government of failing to effectively deal with the situation emerging out of the spread of COVID-19 and creating a grave crisis for the people of the country.
Issuing a press statement, Dr Asif said the reports of collapse of health services emanating from different parts of the country were shocking. In this situation, he requested people to wear double face mask and
maintain at least six feet of distance between yourself and others. The AIMF chief alleged, “Hospitals across the country have maxed out, with people pleading for assistance to acquire beds, oxygen and life-saving medicines, though even the commonest of medicines are proving difficult to obtain.”
While black marketing and hoarding of oxygen during a pandemic is too small an issue to hit nationwide supply, the problem lies in transportation and scarcity of cylinders as well as tankers to supply the oxygen, he maintained. He also called for immediate measures to take care of the needs of migrant workers to check the massive exodus.
