IMPHAL: As a personal contribution in tackling the Covid-19 pandemic, MLA Hiyanglam AC Dr. Y Radheshyam provided face masks, sanitizers, hand gloves and bleaching powder which were procured from his own pockets to clubs’ volunteers and booth level leaders for distribution to different locations under the constituency.
During the distribution programme, MLA Radheshyam said that keeping stress on political differentiation will not help triumph in the war against Covid-19 pandemic. He observed that the situation of Covid-19 in the state has worsened now, as local transmission has spread in different parts of the state and many positive cases of individuals without travel history have been recorded. In this critical situation, some MLAs who are under obligation to work for the good of the people are trying to take down the present state government instead of helping the people in fighting against the pandemic.
He appealed to all the elected representatives that instead of focusing on political alignment and opposition, all of them should give their best level to stop the further spread of disease.
The disease for which a vaccine is yet to be prepared can be defeated only when the public is standing together with the government with the same frame of mind. Otherwise, the disease will release lots of suffering to states which are backward in every segment.
Many leaders and important personalities of BJP Hiyanglam Mandal from 36 polling stations were present during the distribution programme.
