Nagpur, 22 April 2021: In Maharashtra, the situation is very bad due to Corona virus infection. In most of the cities of the state like Mumbai, Nagpur, Pune including others, the rate of infection is increasing rapidly. In such a situation, there are shortage of beds and oxygen in hospitals.
Also, there is a shortage of Remdesivir injections. In view of this shortage, the Bombay High Court has ordered the Uddhav government of the state to ensure the supply of 10,000 Remdesivir injections in Nagpur by 8 pm on Monday night but the Maharashtra government did not follow the order.
The Bombay High Court on Wednesday has once again lashed out at the Maharashtra government for not following its order to deliver anti-viral drug Remdesivir to hospitals in Nagpur. The Nagpur bench of the High Court also said during the hearing that it is ashamed of being part of this ‘wicked and evil’ society. The High Court also said that it is unable to do anything for the coronavirus patients in Maharashtra.
A bench of Justices SB Shukre and SM Modak said, “If you are not ashamed of yourself, we are ashamed of being part of this bad society.” This is how we are stepping back from our responsibilities. You are careless towards our patients. We give you a solution but you do not follow it. You do not give us any solution. What the hell is going on here. ‘
People not getting this life-saving medicine is a violation of their fundamental rights. It is now clear that this administration is lagging behind its responsibilities. The High Court bench was simultaneously hearing several petitions related to the Corona epidemic, including the lack of health services in hospitals, the problems being faced by people.
The court also said that its intention is not to take strict action against anyone but to ensure that the citizens do not face trouble.
