IDPD expresses satisfaction at steps taken to fight back Covid 19
Says, Rs.15000 crore announced by PM negligible to meet health needs in present situation
Ludhiana: The Indian Doctors for Peace and Development (IDPD) while expressing satisfaction at the steps taken to fight back Covid 19, even though belated, has said that the 15000 crore rupees announced by the Prime Minister is negligible to meet the health needs in the present situation. With 30 states in the country if the money is distributed to its state, it comes to be Rs. 500 crores each. It will not at all meet the health requirements. The state of Kerala alone has announced a relief package of rupees 20000 crore, then why is centre refraining from announcement of sufficient funds. Moreover, the Prime Minister has only expressed concern for the poor people but has not announced any relief package for them. The daily wage earners require good food and nutrition to increase immunity in this hour of crisis. In the absence of any relief from the central government they will face the hunger situation which will be a serious issue for the country. “We are already at 102 position in hunger index out of 117 countries”, said the IDPD senior vice president Dr Arun Mitra and general secretary Dr Shakeel Ur Rahman.
