Panaji: Independent MLA Rohan Khaunte on Wednesday said that the lack of infrastructure to treat patients and decisions like opening up of schools and Industrial Training Institutes (it is) do not reflect to be genuine efforts of State government towards zero mortality.
Khaunte was reacting to the statement by Chief Minister on Tuesday in which he had said that the state was aiming towards zero mortality due to COVID-19 infection in the State. He had expressed worry over the double digit mortality figures in the state on Monday and Tuesday.
Taking a jibe at the CM, Khaunte tweeted “Merely making a political announcement of Zero Mortality will not suffice. Does Dr Pramod Sawant have a proper plan for ensuring it? If not, Don’t blame people for the deaths.”
“The sparse infrastructure and conflicting decisions like opening of schools, ITIs etc do not reflect genuine effort for Zero Mortality.”
State government has already announced that ITIs would be open in the State from the end of this month, while consultations would be held with teachers and parents over opening of schools from September 21.
