Bengaluru: Bloated Covid figures to increase revenue - Health minister challenges Shivakumar

Daijiworld Media Network - Bengaluru (SP)

Bengaluru, Jan 12: State health minister, Dr K Sudhakar, has responded to the allegation made by Karnataka Pradesh Congress Committee president, D K Shivakumar that the Karnataka government has been showing inflated Covid infection figures with an eye on money that is attached to it. Sudhakar has challenged Shivakumar to provide proof to back his allegation or tender an apology in public.

The health minister issued a press statement on the issue. He noted that Shivakumar has said that passengers arriving at the airports are being falsely shown as coronavirus positive. "Shivakumar will face legal steps for spreading baseless allegations and rumours," he added.

Sudhakar said that if there was any mistake in Covid infection control measures, testing processes etc, it should have been brought to the notice of the government in the form of a complaint duly supported by evidence. He expressed his indignation at the irresponsible information spread by Shivakumar with an eye on reaping political benefit.

"Shivakumar, who holds a position of responsibility, has made disdainful personal remarks against me and the home minister. I am determined to face these things politically. It was improper on the part of Shivakumar to make baseless allegations when the state is facing a medical emergency," he explained.

    Wrong timing for the Yaatra. Especially when the Govt had initiated measures to curtail spread. Specifically in Bangalore where offices, school , collages are closed. If the cases spike the Congress will face the ire of the people. The ruling party will jack Congress in the right place. Leaders like DKS ,Siddu will go scott free with their team of doctors and money. What about ordinary karyakartas or foot soldiers? That too for a worthless cause, when ONLY supreme court can decide here, not Bommai or BJP. ! Another 'Self Goal' making the BJP job easier. They just watched as Congress hit one more nail in their coffin. LIke the saying goes 'you cannot blame God and Modi for everything in life'.

    Correct. God cannot be blamed. This china virus for communist control of the world and using greed of Elite and BigPharma. So it's man's greed for control and greed for money. God has allowed this because man's pride, overconfidence and less and less reverence to God.

    Show in your actions that you are not looting the public. Bring down the costs of PRC tests, medicines and hospitalization for covid patients and improve the standard of treatment in govt. hospitals.

    There is no need to prove anything as the same is happening all over the world with fake test kits and false narrative of asymptomatic spreading the infection etc. With survival rate of 99.997% it never qualifies to be called a pandemic and according to US CDC it's just like or less dangerous than seasonal flu with 0.003% mortality rate. Why test with invalid RTPCR still when in US they have no emergency use permission since January 1st? Just prove people died due to corona instead of with corona, then only the number game gets exposed. Adding healthy people as patients without symptoms again lets the cat out of the bag. In US too CDC is investigating whether covid labelled aren't in reality. According to the data only 6% were covid deaths. Ministers in the pocket of vaccine industries need not teach us what is the reality.

    Rahil,, The logic is simple,. Its upto the passenger to use the airport he or she wants. I dont think Kerala does it for free. If yes the passenger can then travel to Kannur , Kozihhode airports in Kerala and travel for free.

    This is nothing but total failure of central and state Government. In stead of giving priority to uplift the poverty of poor, job for jobless due to pandemic , they simply announcing cores of amount for development of state where election is going to held to fool the voters. Whether that amount is sanctioned by Assembly or Parliament ??. I think the country is standstill in development and most of the persons investing in companies gambling with share market, where mutual fund and people have invested.

    Indirectly shivkumar says his colleagues saying they are positive or having fever and cannot join him are faking it . Always read between the lines when politicians give huge dialogues ,the meaning always are different.
