Mangaluru: Congress should stop misleading citizens during Covid times - MLA Vedavyas Kamath  

Daijiworld Media Network – Mangaluru (MS)

Mangaluru, May 7: Congress should stop misleading citizens at times like these, said Mangaluru South MLA, Vedavyas Kamath. Express his rage towards the Opposition, Kamath said, “Congress should first put an end to making mockery with respect to matters of health. In addition to giving false statements about Wenlock hospital, it is creating an environment wherein people are scared to arrive at Wenlock hospital."

Addressing a press conference in the city, the MLA said, “All facilities are available at Wenlock hospital for underprivileged. But Congress is misleading citizens and instilling fear in their minds. This kind of politics does not bode well for a party like Congress."

“Congress has not made any appreciable contribution to the development of Wenlock hospital in the past 50 years. Even when U T Khader was the health minister, Wenlock did not get any benefit. So far there were only 12 ICUs. Now there are 70 ventilators due to the effort put in by MP Nalin Kumar and the BJP government. In addition, 20 ventilators are reserved in private hospitals for the poor. So 90 ventilators are available for the treatment of the poor. Oxygen cylinder capacity is increased to 12 tonnes from six tonnes. All these are reserved for poor people."

“In the next 30 to 40 days an oxygen plant will be installed. Within another 10 days, 50 more ventilators will arrive. The blueprint is being prepared to install 250 oxygen beds. Work is in progress to install oxygen plants in all the taluk hospitals. Already 50 oxygen beds are being readied. When Khader was the health minister he did not make any contribution to his constituency. Congress does not want development. Congress is leaving aside development and is indulging in criticizing BJP.”

Slamming the statement by Congress leaders over the oxygen received from Bahrain, Kamath said, “Union government had sent an appeal to Bahrain to send oxygen in the wake of the worsening Covid situation in the country. Initially, due to some political issues, the Centre had decided to get oxygen through Red Cross. So the oxygen was to be sent to Mumbai port. But due to the appeal of the Karnataka government, it was sent to NMPT. This process has happened as per the agreement between the governments of both countries. Congress leaders who are criticizing this matter should first understand it. If the governor is numero uno for any state, DC and elected representatives are important for districts. What is wrong in welcoming the oxygen containers that were brought by the government? Congress politicizes every move of the ruling party, they should utilize their smartness for good work. There is no need to be dramatic during this difficult time.”

Speaking on the subject of availability of Covid report, Vedavyas said, “As the people who used to arrive at Wenlock hospital for Covid test were not filling the details properly in their application form, uploading the same on the system was getting delayed. This issue will be resolved within a week. The Covid report will be available within 24 hours.”

Mayor Premananda Shetty, chief whip of MCC, Sudhir Shetty Kannur and BJP South Mandala president, Vijaya Kumar Shetty were present.

    Jb, Mangalore. Education is different than literacy. I think you're literate, please do not think that you're educated. ""Aremco from Saudi has stake in Reliance" Are you trying to say Reliance is bigger than Aramco?? If the stake holder have some stake can they take the decision unilaterally?? Why then Reliance can't reduce the petrol/diesel prices for Indians or supply oxygen directly? So, Adani became so powerful that he can order UAE authorities to help India?? Don't just pen word because you know how to spell them (literate)

    Hello Adivasere, I am confused who is misleading whom? The whole nation is misled by your Godi media since 2014, which never happened even during emergency in my country. Each cheddi member of your COW party gives statements everyday which does bot correlate each other. Shobakka says there is no shortage, Fekuji says it's all baby cry, nothing is in shortage but brains. Nirmalamma quotes a number with unlimited zeroes as package which never came out from her office. Sambar patra talks abut trillion economy and when asked how many zeroes in trillion he have no clue. Amavasya Surya says every media except Godi media is fake. Just make us very clear who is misleading.

    Everyone knows what a mess these people have landed us into and now they are blaming Congress. The only thing I can say about the MLA's lamentation is ULTA CHOR KOTHWAL KO DAANTE. By the way, Mr. Kamath, why are digging the past? Just to hide your incompetence? If U. T. Khader did not do justice to Wenlock Hospital, you (or your party) should have questioned it when he was the Health Minister, not now. By blaming him you can neither set right the wrong done by U. T. Khader nor can you hide your inefficiency.

    Mr. Mayya, for some people everything that Congress does looks bad. I am sure a bland bhakth like will say Congress did not do any development for the last 70 years. Fact is that Congress ruled for 55 years and they started from Scratch. When Janata Party got elected in 1977, India did had proper army, navy and air force, which was zero in 1947. What the JP did for 3 years is actually a mystery. Then nothing major happened during 2 years of VP Singh, Chandrasekar time. We all know what happened after that for 5 years under PVN. No arguments about it. Then came 9 years of Vajapayee, Deve Gowda and Gujral but importantly more than 5 years of NDA government. You can explain to readers the developments that took place in these years. Then came 10 years of great MMS. No one need any explanation about the developments that took place in his period in spite he has to manage a coalition of 13 parties. Then came your beloved Fakirji with absolute majority that they don't need to depend on any party to take a decision. We all know what all great developments took place in these 6 years. I wonder who made India a powerhouse in IT, Engineering, Space technology, a nuclear state. The country which is able to develop it's own missiles, light aircrafts, light warships and a super computer other than sending satellites of OTHER countries to space. May be I am talking too much, but leave to to explain the developments that your beloved opposition including cow governments.

If you have taken proper decision at proper time these cases would have been less. Allowing religious programme and cultural programme without any covid restriction cases went up. Now also people just throng market in thousands for vegitable and groceries.

    Kamath has taken the cue from Modi of keep blaming the Congress and not take any responsibilty for their rule. The Prime Minister and the BJP has completely failed to provide a sense of safety, direction or leadership during this massive human crisis we are facing. The lack of planning and preparation between the first and the second wave is the worst act of negligence of an incompetent government.

    You people have all the time to criticise others, but no time to ramp up facikities. Boastibg of 90 ventilators for a city of almost 1 lakh plus population? Enough? Now it you arw at the helm of you need to be responsible and accountable. If this were to happen and congress was in power we would have questioned them as well in the same manner. But difference is congress has atleast a little shame and BJP is shameless.

While the state government dicided on lockdown you all have another discion on weekend lockdown. Today all of sudden you restricted the time till nine. This has led totally chaotic crowds at places without social distancing. As it is you are playing with people lives and livelyhoods you have scant regards for the people who have elected you. People are being put to unessary hardship. Please take charge. Be proactive or else the very purpose of you being MLA will be lost.

    You and your party is only good for making such press conferences and misleading people. Nowhere were you,other MLAs and MP of DK around all these days. Oyygen sent as aid also is being used by your party as a political tool, that's why sadly Red cross had to issue a letter and statement that it's sent as a aid. Please step out of your comfortable AC offices and see what going on. People aren't able to find medicines, injections and oxyen even in Mangalore. So many requests I have posted on social media and every single time it was Youth Conference volunteers responding. Is the Govt and it's representatives dead? Voting for BJP was a mistake is one of the biggest realizations Covid has taught. Incapable and insensitive govt. Pls start counting your days,this Govt is temporary.

All the above is your job and you did not do it. India will not forgive you. Also, nothing in this country is free. If you are getting something without paying for it, thank the TAX PAYERS, not to any political party or any politician.

    Santan Mascarenhas, Kinnigoli/Bangalore...I wish to make your comment more understandable. In fact every citizen or migrant staying in India is paying Tax. Every item we buy has GST & SGST etc. Smokers, Fuel users and Alcohol consumers are the most who pay taxes. Working in organized sectors do not have a chance to escape from income tax and also to pay the other taxes as a consumer. These so called politicians suck the blood of the citizens and Finally citizen get "Babaji Ka Tullu".
