Udupi: Lockdown extension will push people into financial distress - MLA Raghupathi Bhat

Daijiworld Media Network - Udupi (DV)

Udupi, Jun 9: As the Covid-19 cases are gradually declining, there is no necessity of complete lockdown in the future. Let the government restrict religious, social, and political activities for at least three months. Government should allow people to lead their life. Petty shops, hotels, and small vendors should be allowed to do their business said, MLA Raghupathi Bhat speaking to the media.

"If the government continues lockdown after June 14, it will push people into a financial crisis. I request the chief minister to withdraw lockdown after June 14. The government should not extend the lockdown for the district where the positivity rate is below 10-15%. Meanwhile, the Covid cases in the state have dropped from 50,000 to 12,000. People will face a serious problem if the lockdown is extended," he said.

MLA Raghupathi Bhat when asked about the change of chief minister in the state said, "CM Yediyurappa is working round the clock despite his age. He is always available to listen to the needs of people,” he said.

“We have also received orders from high command not to collect signatures that are for or against Yediyurappa. I will not sign on any such paper. You can ask my opinion, but it is not right to collect signatures. The high command can do it if they want,” he added.

“I am unaware of the origins of the demand for change of state chief minister. I do not see the need for a leadership change. Back when Rajnath Singh was the national BJP president he had personally come and asked the opinion of every MLA. This time also, if they feel the need to do the same, the senior leaders in Delhi can do so,” said MLA Bhat at Udupi.

    Mr Raghupathi Baht is very sensible in his statement. Any extension of lockdown will put people to financial distress. Lockdown must be opened and people must strictly follow covid rules on their own without any enforcement agencies.

    Rightly said. Now educate people and unite all MLA s against further lockdown measures and protocols which aren't devised to stop infections but only to prepare medical amenities. If CM still is adamant then threaten to resign enmass to end this planndemic hoax based on fake tests and false narrative of asymptomatic spreading which has no scientific basis. End scamdemic and let us begin to lift our economy from the scratch. If you can't compensate us for the losses caused by unscientific lockdown measures then you all resign and go for midterm elections.

    @ Rajesh. It is better to spend on elections rather than kill electors by unscientific lockdown measures and protocols. Every citizen is burdened with loans by continuous borrowing by this govt as it didn't get its dues from bankrupt central government. We are forced to pay the loans thus raised through tax loots by both the govts. If you are happy with economic disasters caused by these unscientific lockdown measures then nobody can save the nation.
