‘India needs a PM not an event manager’

New Delhi, June 01 (KMS): The Congress has slammed the Modi government alleging that it mishandled the COVID-19 pandemic which brought economic activities to a virtual standstill in many parts of the country.

In a Twitter post, the party said, “India needs a Prime Minister, not an event manager.” The post contained an image with the text reading, ‘BJP Infected Economy – 23 crore people have been pushed below the poverty line and into indebtedness’.

The opposition party in another post maintained that the only reason for India’s economic trouble is one man’s high-handedness. The Congress was pointing to reports which said that India’s GDP contracted by 7.3 per cent in 2020-21.

The Congress said that those who promised to make India a $5-trillion economy, have seen an almost $5 trillion bank fraud during their tenure. Common people have to pay the price for Modi’s fake promisesm, it said. »

Srinagar, June 01 (KMS): Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir, senior APHC leader and the President of Anjuman Sharai Shian, Agha Syed Hassan Al-Moosvi Al-Safvi, has condemned the negative role and monopolistic intentions of the former trustees regarding Imam Hussain (RA) Hospital at Bemina in Srinagar.

Agha Syed Hassan Al-Moosvi Al-Safvi in a statement issued in Srinagar made it clear that the hospital is an important institution and all the affairs will be carried out through the same council which has been unanimously formed by all concerned to run the administrative affairs of the institution.

Al-Moosvi said that the construction and development of the hospital and other issues will be considered regularly. “Meetings are held regularly and a similar one was scheduled to be held in the hospital on June 1, but the former trustees once again showed negative thinking and used the police to stop the meeting.” He said, the hospital was facing various problems and the issue of registration of the hospital and the recent embezzlement of Rs 4 lakh was to be discussed. But, he added, in order to save the people involved, the former trustees brought the police at the hospital and misled them about baseless law and order concerns and persuaded them to take action.

The APHC leader said even now such meetings are held satisfactorily under his chairmanship and no problem has arisen. He said that these former trustees have been pursuing their own interests by creating monopoly in the hospital for a long time. “People have looted the institution and caused irreparable damage. The future of the hospital is once again in jeopardy due to the actions of these people,” he said.

Al-Moosvi expressed his determination to isolate the monopolistic elements in the institution with the help of the people.
