AP COVID-19: Ruling MLAs Spurring Massive Public Gathering Putting Lives At Risk?

Andhra Pradesh has seen the emergence of a new pandemic. Amid a lockdown of Covid-19, it seems there is a rush for advertising among ruling MLAs and maybe some ministers. Although there are increasing cases of a novel coronavirus throughout the state each day, such leaders have spurred many huge public gatherings throughout the name of distributing valuable articles, putting others at risk.

Just a few days earlier, YSR Congress Party MLA Biyyapu Madhusudhan Reddy from Srikalahasti constituency in Chittoor district carried a big rally of 35 Tractors to hand out food amongst the poor as well as the needy. Later roomers spread that around a dozen authorities who took part in the gathering were tested Covid-19 positively. However, the government had rejected they caught the infection.

A same-party MLA, Venkataiah Goud from the Palamaneru constituency from the same district, would have elected a walkway with around 150 individuals in his electorate in which the most significant number of studies of coronavirus were reported. He did not keep disassociating from society. Later, if they asked about his actions, he exploited media.

In the very same district, YSRCP lawmaker RK Roja from either the Nagari constituency took part to her supporters in such a borewell election programme. Whereas the action star-turned-politician presented as a deity, followers threw petals of flowers at his feet. Videos go viral, and during the lockdown, detractors brought up objections regarding the event.

A few days earlier Prasanna Kumar Reddy, YSRCP MLA from either the Kovur assembly in Nellore District, was scheduled for breach of a lockdown code. He handed out groceries that prompted 4,500 people to come. At a police station, a legislator started protesting, requesting withdrawal of a case. For a guarantee from the district collector, he termed out from his protest.

On Wednesday, MLA with the same party Kiliveti Sanjeevaiah organized a significant rally at Sullurpeta to Nellore district.

A few days ago a man died for violating lockdown regulations after becoming beaten up by the police to Andhra Pradesh. Critics were asking why political leaders can’t apply the limitations more strictly.

Opposition party officials are trying to cash in at the Covid-19 scenario before a cabinet development to seduce Chief Minister YS Jaganmohan Reddy, commentators say, even if ordinary people might have to pay a high price.
