    If any development comes up then MP,MLA and all ruling politicians take credit for that. If any disaster occurs they blame IAS ,IPS officers and common bureaucrats will be held responsible. Why can't our MP , MLA'S can be transferred to UP, Bihar as a promotion?

    shocking news. this is nothing but cold-blooded murder of its people by the state. CM, his ministers and district commisioner should all be punished suitably. What an utterly useless and incompetent administration. Now do not conveniently go blaming the doctors who were on duty.

    It is better that, govt. has to resign and sit at home if they can't manage as well as govt. hospital officials if they can't tell their grievances to the govt. Where is sule chackravarthi? who was saying Modi has all the information in his laptop which gives him all information of hospital activities. There is a limit for lies!

    Just couple of days back the so called Doctor Health Minister was bragging that everything is perfect in Karnataka and there is no short supply and people should not panic. Then what went wrong? 24 lives don't matter to this government, but it matters to their family members., for their little children, their friends..their relatives. Sack this doctor and initiate action on the relevant staff of the hospital. Heads should roll, else this will go on.

    ** Very Important: If some one in close relative /friends circle had died due to Covid 19 or any other reason, as them check their bank account statement or passbook entry from 01-04 to 31-03 of the financial year. Seeing the entry of Rs 12/- or Rs.330/- *mark it* GO to the bank and claim the insurance of Rs.200000/- In the year 2015 the government of India provided Two Insurance scheems to the savings Account holders of all banks. *Pradhan Mantri Jeevan Jyothi Bima Yojana* (PMLJJBV) at Rs 330/- and Pradhan Mantri Suraksha Bima Yojana * (PMSBY) at Rs 12/- 2 Lakh rupees. Many of us might have filled this form, the premium will also be debited to all SB bank account on 31/05 Spread this message to all bank account holders. *Rs 200000/- is not a small amount for our people for their family who lost their members. **

    BJP MLAS & MPS are only interested in Divide & rule. Cow & bow bow politics. Hindu & Muslim politics. On above issues they will reach the sites in helicopters to fuel the issues. We are responsible for this day in our state. We saw 5% negatives in Siddu government & converted that one to 95%. Now we are ready to except which is having 95% negativity & we are converting it to 5% to hide our mistakes or to hide our arrogant behaviour towards our failures.

    Sudhakar needs to resign. BJP Govt have made mockery of the deaths. So many deaths could have been avoided but the arrogance is so high that they won't give ear to the experts, opposition parties, health officials etc. SO many deaths and you wont find a single BJPian resigning. Such is the state of affairs.

    Get your Facts right & then comment. When Government & Experts where saying to follow Covid Norms. Did anyone follow? Everyone was questioning Government for not letting them to do business as usual. Now when infected why blame government. When patient are more then what hospitals can handle this is bound to happen. Only Request to people is " Please take this issue seriously. It is not the matter of getting cured, everyone can be cured provide they get right treatment at right time. During pandemic this is very unlikely mainly because shortage of medicine or other supplies including hospital beds" blaming Government or Hospitals will not save any life's. its our responsibility to take care of our self & our loved ones.

    Most of corona deaths are due to choking of vital medical infrastructure and both mild and severe cases rushing or made to rush to hospitals also without proper personal care to patients due to fear of catching the virus after showing positive through these high sensitive communist RTPCR Tests. All Comminist chinese and globalists plan to decimate people by hyping fear of virus using their mainstream media, creating medical facilities shortages also mainly to raise fear and push for their vaccines or their lucrative business using their 'gold standard' high sensitive RTPCR tests which may detect seasonal corona viruses 2021 (seasonal flu) also as Covid 19. Using this virus, fear of virus, misusing knowledge of it These communist chinese and elites trying to ruin the whole world and creating chaos due to shutdown, shortages then finally taking advantage of situation controlling the world with the help of their huge military. With a small virus win the whole world or bring communism seems to be chinese communist policy! and along with elites bring their communist one world government or new world order. Meantime Billions of Dollors business for Vaccine and Online Businesses. That's what Communist chinese and western elites - Big Billionaires want at expense of Common people, countries using this virus, with their gold standard RTPCR tests and to support and to finance this evil globalist agenda.

    You are ranting is pure nonsense. RT-PCR is the ONLY technique to quickly test for ANY virus else you have to do a culture growth technique which takes upto 14 days. Antigen test is a joke. Even Arnabs Republic TV cannot hide that many deaths.
