Muktsar, September 12

The Covid cases and deaths have more than doubled in the past fortnight in Muktsar district, but some politicians are still giving two hoots to the Covid safety norms and regularly holding gatherings.

Furthermore, most people attending such events are seen neither wearing the face masks nor maintaining the social distancing.

On August 30, the district had 281 active cases and nine deaths. However, now, the number of total active cases has reached 600 and total deaths reported are 21.

In such a situation, when everyone needs to follow the Covid safety norms religiously, politicians like AAP's Muktsar constituency incharge Jagdeep Singh Kaka Brar are regularly holding meetings with party workers and that too by defying the norms. He recently visited Thandewala and Khapianwali villages and addressed gatherings. Besides, he held a meeting with AAP workers regarding the party's campaign to distribute oximeters.

Similarly, on September 7, SAD chief Sukhbir Singh Badal visited some waterlogging-affected villages in the district where a large number of farmers gathered. Just after two days, PPCC chief Sunil Jakhar along with Cabinet Minister Sukhbinder Singh Sarkaria too visited some villages and met farmers who allegedly did not follow social distancing norms.

A number of politicians, including Deputy Speaker-cum-MLA Malout Ajaib Singh Bhatti, SAD's Muktsar MLA Kanwarjit Singh Rozy Barkandi, SAD's ex-MLA Malout Harpreet Singh and a number of police personnel were found positive for Covid in the past.
