Covid-19: Ex-MP Dhruvanarayan accuses BJP leaders of misguiding in Jubilant case

2 min read

Mysuru: Former MP and Congress leader R Dhruvanarayan has accused the BJP leaders of diluting the Jubilant case and demanded the chief minister to conduct a fair probe into it. 

Speaking to the media here on Saturday, Congress leader said that “Jubilant Generics Limited in Nanjangud had become the epicentre of Covid-19 as more than 40 of its employees had tested positive. Despite the gravity of the issue, the BJP leaders are trying to dilute the issue by giving contradictory statements”.
 
While Medical Education Minister K Sudhakar had said that the first Covid-19 patient of jubilant had travelled to China, the patient had outrightly rejected it. Media reports had quoted the patient saying he does not have a passport to travel outside. 
 
Minister Sudhakar’s colleague and District Incharge Minister ST Somashekhar had given three dimension to the investigation. But MP Pratap Simha’s statements are misleading. According to Nanjangud MLA Harshavardhan, MP and the investigating officers are under pressure from Delhi. 
 
Meanwhile, IAS officer Harsh Gupta who has been appointed to prove the issue has allegedly complained of non-co-operation. 
Considering all this, chief minister must step in and order a fair probe into it.
 
He blamed central and state governments for neglecting the welfare of the migrant labourers. As per the data there are 40 crore labourers in India and they are worst affected in Covid-19 pandemic.
 
In Karnataka around 54,000 migrant labourers registered in Seva Sindhu platform to return homes. But the government bends to builders’ lobby and stopped the migrant workers from returning to their home.
 
He accused the Central government of fleecing people by hiking fuel price. Crude oil price is just 16 US Dollar per barrel but the prices are highest in the country. Excluding tax, petrol price is just Rs 18 while in Bengaluru present petrol price with tax is Rs 73. Why this heavy taxation?, he sought to know.
 
Congress city president R Murthy, former Mylac Chairman H A Venkatesh and former Corporator Shivanna were present.
