TDP president and former Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu on Tuesday launched a scathing attack on the Jaganmohan Reddy government, saying that it was showing hell to the Coronavirus patients by not giving any facilities for them at the hospitals.Mr Naidu called it inhuman and pathetic that the dead body of a Coronavirus patient was left lying in the corridor at the Ongole Government General Hospital in Prakasam district for the last two days. The TDP chief said in a heartrending manner, nobody bothered to do anything. The Government was behaving in an inhuman way.In a statement here, Mr Naidu condemned the Ongole hospital incident. The negligent attitude was continuing even though such tragic incidents involving COVID-19 patients were taking place repeatedly all across Andhra Pradesh.
Mr Naidu slammed the YSRCP leaders for putting all their focus on harassing political opponents instead of using the government resources to rescue the people from the Coronavirus threat. He condemned the latest ‘false cases’ filed against TDP activist Rakesh at Chandragiri in Chittoor district.The TDP chief said their party activist was now being implicated for putting some posts on social media against the ruling party. The YSRCP leaders got the neighbours of Rakesh to file a complaint about a clash that never happened.Based on this, Rakesh was arrested on charges framed under Sec 354, 347, 447 and 507 read with 34. This was nothing but vindictiveness. The false cases should be immediately withdrawn.According to officials, on August 7, a patient was admitted to Government district hospital in Markapur and found COVID-19 positive, on the same day patient, attempted to commit suicide by consuming sanitiser. The patient was then referred to Government General Hospital, Ongole for treatment on August 8.
On August 9, while the medical staff shifting him to the ward in a wheelchair, he suddenly got down the chair and committed suicide by jumping off from the 3rd floor of the hospital building and died on the spot. Local police said the dead body was shifted to the morgue on 10th August for PME and later the body was handed over to the family members.
