Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao today surprisingly hit out at AIMIM leader Akbaruddin Owaisi in the Assembly for the latter's comments against the state government on tackling the coronavirus cases.
There was a tussle between the Leader of the House and the AIMIM leader on the Coronavirus warriors, the testing and the details of the spread.
The Assembly took up short debate on the coronacirus cases, and the opposition parties targeted the government on its "failure" to check the virus' spread.
As part of that, Owaisi accused Health Minister E Rajender of not giving clarity on the coronavirus cases.
He also claimed that the government was not able to tackle the cases, and that it had also failed to give due respect to the coronavirus warriors.
KCR then flayed Owaisi for these remarks.
"We have been making all possible efforts, and have significantly improved the healthcare facilities and infrastructure. The government is also doing its best to create awareness among the people on the coronavirus testing and services. Since the beginning we have implemented a plan, and have been spending a lot of funds," he said.
"Since we conduct tests and treatment following the ICMR guidelines, the death rate is less and the recovery rate is more," the CM claimed.
Later Owaisi said that about 300 Muslims who had died of the coronavirus had been buried in 50 acres of Wakf land offered with the help of minister K T Rama Rao.
Given how close the TRS and the AIMIM are, one wonders what actually happened.
