k-surendran

KOLLAM: BJP state president K Surendran harshly criticised the government on the incident of an ambulance driver sexually abusing a COVID patient in Aranmula. Talking to reporters here, he said that a serious lapse has seen on the side of the health department and sought the resignation of the health minister.

The woman who tested positive of COVID-19 was sent to the hospital late last night violating all rules. It is inhumane for the health department to send two young women at midnight with an ambulance driver having a criminal background, when it was mandatory to send a health worker along with patients.

Minister Shailaja who appointed party activists in the health department after violating rules is solely responsible for this incident. What is happening in the state is not heard anywhere in the world. Surendran said that this is the care of the government towards Covid patients. This government is doing nothing to defend COVID except the press meet convened in the evening.

With strong action taken against the drug mafia in Karnataka, Kerala has now become a safe haven for the drug mafia. An example of this is the seizure of 500 kg of drugs in Attingal. According to police, this was brought to deliver to many places in Kerala. The government should be ready to conduct a probe against the drug racket run by Anoop Muhammed, arrested in Karnataka and friend of Bineesh Kodiyeri.
