G Tiwari: This Govt Has Bungled Up India's Fight Against #Covid19 | CNN News18 | BrassTacks

Ghanshyam Tiwari: This govt has bungled up India's fight against #Covid19. The government of Uttarakhand has issued strict guidelines to stop the spread of coronavirus during the Mahakumbh Mela in Haridwar. The state government has made it mandatory for the devotees to bring their Covid-19 test reports, issued 72 hours before to participate in the pilgrimage.Jagatguru Shankaracharya Swaroopanand Saraswati has, however, raised questions on this decision by the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP)-led state government. Jagadguru Shankaracharya who reached Haridwar said that it seems from the government’s stand that coronavirus operates at the behest of the government. He alleged that the government increases the Covid-19 figures when it wants and reduces them as per its fancy.According to Shankaracharya, the Mahakumbh, which takes place after 12 years, is a unique event for the Hindu religion but the government is trying to reduce the number of pilgrims by slapping new Covid-19 guidelines.He further stated that the government forgets about the Covid-19 during the time of elections. Questioning the decisions of the central and state government, he said, “Where did the coronavirus go in the states where elections were held? How did the coronavirus make a comeback as soon as the elections were over?”#CNNNews18 #Covid19 #BrassTacksSubscribe our channel for latest news updates: http://bit.ly/2KGXvAW#GetCloserToTheNews with latest headlines on politics, sports and entertainment on https://bit.ly/2Y4QccLTo stay updated on-the-go, download the News18 App: · Google Play Store: http://bit.ly/2VcRTRc· Apple App Store: https://apple.co/2JceAmY Follow us for latest news, photos & videos:· Facebook: http://bit.ly/2vOO22u· Twitter: http://bit.ly/2HdNKch· Instagram: http://bit.ly/2PRgfiz.
