WARANGAL: Though the Central and State governments have clearly stated that not more than 50 people should attend a marriage and not more than 20 people should attend a funeral, it seems as if the political leaders don’t give two hoots to any of this.
Despite directions from the authorities concerned, the political leaders continue to attend public programmes, be it marriages, funerals or inaugural ceremonies, in style and that too along with scores of their followers, flouting all norms. Even the officials concerned, who were strict with lockdown norms, continue to turn a blind eye when it comes to political leaders.
Meanwhile, the recent protest organised by the junior doctors at Gandhi Hospital has also sent chills down the spine of people. The citizens who have been reportedly concerned about the steps taken by the State government to battle COVID-19 are scared now after a few incidents came to the fore, one being a TRS MLA testing positive for the virus.
At a time when the number of COVID-19 cases is going up on a daily basis and criticism continues to pour in against the fragile public healthcare system, the citizens have requested the politicians to behave more responsibly and maintain restraint as they inadvertently attract masses.
Speaking to Express, M Santosh Kumar, a resident of Hanamkonda, said that IT Minister KT Rama Rao is scheduled to visit Warangal on June 17 to inaugurate the Bhadrakali Bund and lay foundation to Oxygen Park and few other projects. We suggest that it is better if the Minister postpones the programme in the light of the current scenario. It is a well known fact that he is a charismatic leader and party cadre and public would throng the event in large numbers.
