There Should Be Lockdown Otherwise Bengaluru Would Be Another Brazil: HD Kumaraswamy

Mumbai: In view of the increasing coronavirus cases in Karnataka, Janata Dal (Secular) leader H.K. D. Kumaraswamy demanded a relock in Bengaluru for at least 20 days and warned that if “Bengaluru would be another Brazil.”

Taking to Twitter, the former Karnataka Chief Minister also stated that “people’s health matters, not the economy.”

He said, “Stop playing with people’s lives. Lockdown is not useful in some areas. Bengaluru needs to go into lockdown for at least 20 days. Otherwise, Bengaluru would be another Brazil. People’s health matters, not the economy,” he tweeted.

“The problem is not being resolved by distributing rations to the poor and laborers. The state’s 50 lakh working class is to be given compensation of Rs 5,000. Also, many drivers, weavers, and laborers have not received the benefits of the schemes announced by the state government,” he said in another tweet.

“The implementation of the programs needs to be addressed immediately. Declaring the relief package and not reaching out to the poor is unfair,” he said in another tweet.

According to the Health Ministry, Karnataka so far has recorded 9,150 coronavirus cases. Out of the total, 3395 are active cases in the state, 5618 have been cured/migrated and 137 have died due to infection.
