Hyderabad, Jan 24 (INN): Congress MLC MS Prabhakar on Saturday demanded the resignation of Deputy Chief Minister (Health) Dr T Rajaiah for his alleged failure to stop the outbreak of Swine Flu.
Speaking to media persons here, Prabhakar alleged that despite being a doctor himself, Dr Rajaiah has failed to take required steps to contain the Swine Flu in the State which consequently led to more than 20 deaths. “People are dying or getting affected with the disease almost on daily basis. It was all because of inefficiency of Dr Rajaiah,” he alleged.
Prabhakar demanded that Dr Rajaiah should resign from his post owing moral responsibility for the Swine Flu deaths. Else, Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao should sack him from his Cabinet, he demanded. Praising the Chief Minister for the steps that he took to prevent further damage due to Swine Flu, he urged him to take the entire health department under his control and conduct review meeting on daily basis on Swine Flu.
