TDP National President and former Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu on Saturday expressed concern that the YSRCP Government was taking it lightly even as the Coronavirus second wave was threatening to cause a greater loss of lives among workers, employees, and all others.

The opposition leader has raised his voice against the conduction of the Andhra Pradesh Class 10 and Inter exams amid the ongoing Covid-19 situation. He termed the government’s response to the pandemic as a 'leadership failure' for not initiating timely preventive measures against the severe outbreak of the infections.

He demanded the Government to postpone the 10th class and intermediate examinations in order to prevent any further harm to the lives of students, their parents, and also to teaching and non-teaching staff, as the Covid-19 cases across the country are on a rise.

While talking about the upcoming exams, Naidu said, “How the students could be forced to write the examinations when they were in the grip of a fear psychosis that was triggered by the massive rise in second wave infections everywhere.”

There was no study atmosphere in homes even as families were under 24-hour tensions about getting Covid infections from some touchpoint or other. The students aged less than 18 years were not eligible for the vaccine. Under such circumstances, it would not be correct to force them to come to the examination centres,” he said.

He demanded more focus on the vaccination of those in the 18 to 45 years age group while he slammed the Government for taking Coronavirus deaths also very lightly. He said that just like face masks, sanitising and handwashing were made compulsory in the beginning, now the vaccination should be advised to all.

‘There were countless bodies waiting to be performed last rites. People were not able to get ambulances or hospital beds or oxygen supply. The humanitarian crisis was threatening to blow out of control. The Covid deaths should be considered 'Government murders’, “said the former CM.
