    Bommai as a CM has achieved zero so far and already appears to lack courage. Putting nonsense restrictions against a mild infection is making Himalayas of an ant-hill. Is it too late to ask for Yeddi back in the chair - he seems 100 times better than Bommai.

    Making Mountain out of MOLE HILL seems to be the strategy to help vaccine industries and their stooges to prosper. Omicron is limited to upper respiratory tract which means it doesn't affect lungs and not serious to require any unproven vaccines or unscientific measures which always will fail. Vaccines never guarantee that they either prevent or protect any protection against mutating viruses like corona till today. The fully jabbed are more vulnerable and 67% of them are in hospitals and death rates too which means they have failed but vaccine certificate works is a foolish assumption. Open all places only to the covid infected with natural immunity which can be ascertained by blood serum test. Nearly 80% of the population tested by ICMR have antibodies and herd immunity has been achieved, so it's time to wind up Operation Mismanagement and mission impossible to enrich vac industries. According to the affidavit submitted to Supreme Court the central government has submitted vaccination is voluntary and nobody can be forced into taking them. As such any mandates by either states and executive is illegal and is punishable. Hope states now stop these measures as people can't be fooled for long by using paid media into panic and fear mode. Any discrimination is against our constitution too. India has signed an international treaty in 2005 which can't be violated under any pretext.

    I am telling many times to close public, religious, political gatherings for 1 month and put marshals and police everywhere to monitor people should wear mask and social distancing.Govt should put banner or cut out written as 'Omicron is variant of concern spreading in State..It may be dangerous...Please wear mask....' in every public place..So that people will fear and they will wear mask by seeing the poster or banner or cut put in public place. Dear health Minister, I am requesting to provide 3rd dose To everyone and make night curfew from 8 pm to 6 am and make 50 percent occupancy/ capacity for all public places and public transport as third wave has also started...This guidelines should be only 1 month.Also put police and marshal in class rooms in college and schools to monitor whether students are following covid protocols

    you can stay at home forever if you want to. Lockdowns didnt work in the first wave and will never work. America has said omicron isn't dangerous.

    I agree that lockdown will never work...I am saying that omicron is new virus.Nobody knows the behavior..I am not saying lockdown should be implemented.I am saying put tuff restrictions like wearing mask, banning super spreading events for 1 month,50 percent capacity in public places, putting police in public place to monitor whether people are following covid protocols...I am not supporting lockdown.I know lockdown is useless..

    If you still need a booster after FULLY vaccinated, and still need to get tested after being FULLY vaccinated, and still need to wear a mask after being FULLY vaccinated and still get hospitalized after being FULLY vaccinated... It's probably time you admitted that you have been FULLY conned !?!?!?

    Also, ensure that Nalin Kumar is involved in such critical issue to offer his view points and expertise in the matter. He simply call press meets to fore cast Congress destiny and total disintegration. Dollar/Rupee matter is resolved.
