‘Thousands of families are being devastated by the corona in Lucknow. There are piles of corpses at the cremation ghats. The election is not necessary but it is important to save people’s lives. According to Kaushal Kishore, MP from Mohanlalganj Lok Sabha seat of Lucknow, capital of UP. Kaushal Kishore has appealed to the Election Commission. Panchayat elections should be postponed for at least one month.
Earlier, a letter in the state government in the name of Minister Brajesh Pathak has also become very viral. It is also written in the letter that even on the call of the minister, Yogesh Praveen, who received the Padma Shri, did not get treatment and died. It has been written in the letter that 4-5 thousand patients are getting daily in the city, and in view of this, the number of beds in hospitals is very less.
See examples of how Corona cases will increase in Panchayat elections
The first phase of voting is on April 15 in UP. These panchayat elections are being conducted in 4 stages, before that the leaders are also going for their propaganda.
Now look at an example, a teacher from Kanpur, UP, has a fever for the past several days, everyone in his family is suffering and everyone’s corona antigen report has come positive. Now the duty of this teacher has been imposed in the election and without the RT-PCR report, they are not being removed from duty, it is taking time for the RT-PCR report to come, so if they do election duty even for one day Are putting their lives at risk, there is a fear of infecting others as well. But you have to do the job.
These teachers are just one example. Many such examples will be found in UP.
In such a situation, if the panchayat elections are held, then surely the resources will have to be used for these elections in the midst of the epidemic. Also, cases of corona virus may come up rapidly.
