UP govt spreading false propaganda on controllin­g Covid: SP


Samajwadi Party chief Akhilesh Yadav on Tuesday accused the Yogi Adityanath government of spreading false propaganda on the issue of controllin­g coronaviru­s, saying there is a ‘shortage’ of beds and vaccines in Uttar Pradesh.

There is a crisis in Uttar Pradesh due to coronaviru­s, he claimed. “There is a crisis in UP caused by corona. The BJP government has to answer as to why it indulged in false propaganda on controllin­g corona. There is a shortage of vaccines, tests, doctors, beds and ambulances. There is a delay in test reports, and black marketing of medicines. Why is the BJP government silent on this?,” he said in a tweet in Hindi. “Where is the star campaigner?” he said without naming anyone.

In another tweet, Yadav termed the Election Commission’s move banning TMC chief Mamata Banerjee from campaignin­g for 24 hours from Monday 8 pm as a “sign of disappoint­ment of the BJP, which is facing defeat in the polls”.
