Chandigarh: BJP national general secretary Tarun Chugh today held Punjab chief minister Amarinder Singh's inept administration squarely responsible for making Punjab one of the worst-hit pandemic state in the county.

 

He said Punjab was reeling under a massive surge of cases and deaths because of the poor rate of vaccination in the state and also because of laxity in the administration. "Punjab is paying a heavy price for the royal style of Amarinder's working which is not connected to the pain of common man", Chugh said.

While urging people of the state to maintain Covid discipline with mask and social distancing Chugh regretted that instead of any positive achievements the Amarinder Singh government was being credited with becoming a Covid capital state of the country.

He lambasted the chief minister for his tall claims on exaggerated testing rate saying that "what is the fun of testing if the remedial steps were not taken against the pandemic?". 

"It is an alarming situation in the state for which the chief minister is completely responsible", he said and demanded that the chief minister should give up his seven-star culture.
