Dharamsala, May 10
Congress leader GS Bali said the party launched a helpline 01892-260038 in Kangra district today, which would be operational 24X7.
Congress workers would help people, provide them foodgrains and counselling from doctors regarding the medicines to be taken during infection. The party was preparing safety kits. However, some delay was being caused due to the lockdown. As soon as the kits were available, these would be distributed free of cost among the people, he said.
Addressing a press conference, Bali questioned the preparations made by the state government to tackle the second wave of Covid.
He alleged that the state should have created more facilities in hospitals since last year when the first wave of the pandemic had struck. However, the government did nothing. He said the government should check black marketing of oxymeters and medicines. — TNS
