Margao – The BJP Government under Dr. Pramod Sawant must immediately either take over private hospitals treating Covid patients or announce subsidised charges for patients in private hospitals to mark birthday of Prime Minister Narendra Modi Ji & prove intentions of BJP to provide “Seva” to the People of Goa demanded GPCC president Girish Chodankar.
The exhorbitant rates fixed by Government which are highest in entire India are with an intention of making fortunes pushing its single point agenda of “Business from Peoples Sickness”.
In these critical times of Covid pandemic the BJP Government has once again displayed its insensitive nature towards Common man and its love for Crony Capitalists by approving huge charges for Covid treatment in private hospitals charged GPCC president Girish Chodankar.
The Government is completely responsible for rise in Covid cases in Goa. The deliberate delay to fully commission the South Goa District Hospital (SGDH) and declaring it as Covid Hospital is the main reason for all hospitals getting full with patients. The corrupt health minister is still not ready to make use of two floors of the SGDH for treating Covid patients when patients are made to sleep on floor.
It is due to failure of the government to create additional facilities in last six months since the first lockdown was announced, the people are compelled to go to private hospitals. Now, it is the duty of the government to ensure that Covid patients are provided health care with affordable rates.
The BJP government must make either of the annoucement on the birthday of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, as he is primarily responsible for the failed nationwide lockdown and complete fiasco in handling of Covid pandemic.
The adamant Chief Minister did not listen to the timely suggestions of Congress Party to undertake Community Testing, Lockdown of Vasco after Mangor Hill outbreak, Declaring South Goa District Hospital as Covid Centre. The result is now open to all.
