MANGALDAI, Aug 4 - Mangaldai Lok Sabha MP Dilip Saikia has assured the media here of bringing transparency to COVID-19 guidelines regarding distribution of relief material both in cash and kind for positive patients and people under quarantine in Darrang district.
A section of mediapersons, particularly a COVID-19 survivor named Ganesh Dutta has alleged substandard food in most of the Covid Care Centres or hospitals in the district in comparison to other neighbouring places like Tezpur and Amingaon.
He also charged the Darrang district administration of lagging behind with regard to any uniform policy of providing cash amount of Rs 2,000 or GR with equal monetary value to each of the families under containment zone.
A section of mediapersons also charged the district administration of creating discrepancies in matters of maintaining Covid protocol for containment zones.
Mangaldai BJP MP Dilip Saikia was addressing mediapersons at the Circuit House here on Monday afternoon along with two BJP MLAs of the district, namely Gurujyoti Das and Binanda Kumar Saikia, besides other senior party workers of the district.
In response to the charges, the embarrassed parliamentarian assured the mediapersons of providing official Covid relief manuals and also urged them to provide the list of bonafide persons being deprived of due relief.
Earlier, Saikia slammed the Congress party for organising betrayal day �Pratarana Divas� across the State on Monday against the ruling BJP-led State government.
He charged the Congress of cheating the people of the country with countless corruption cases while ruling for 55 years. Hence they had no moral right to observe such �Pratarana Divas� against the BJP-led State government, which has shown tremendous prosperity on all fronts.
�At this time of crisis, the Congress leaders should have gone to pacify the COVID-19 patients. Their duty should have been to help the flood and erosion-hit victim families. But they are observing the programme only to create misconception among the people, nothing else,� MP Saikia reiterated.
