The Yogi government of Uttar Pradesh is moving the Supreme Court against the Allahabad High Court’s decision to impose lockdown in five cities. The Yogi government will demand an immediate hearing on his petition in the Supreme Court.
Five cities of Uttar Pradesh will not face lockdown. The Supreme Court has stayed the Allahabad High Court verdict. The Yogi government of Uttar Pradesh had moved the Supreme Court against the Allahabad High Court’s decision to impose lockdown in five cities. The Supreme Court bench headed by the Chief Justice of India, in its order, has asked the Uttar Pradesh government to present before the state high court various steps and measures taken to control the epidemic within a week.
Significantly, on Monday, the Allahabad High Court ordered a ban on lockdown-like restrictions in the five most affected cities of the state, Prayagraj, Lucknow, Kanpur, Varanasi and Gorakhpur, till April 26, in view of the failure of health facilities in the Corona blast.
Court was reprimanded by the High Court stating that, in a civilized society, if the public health system is not able to meet the challenges and people are dying due to lack of proper treatment, it means that there is no proper development. Health and education have become isolated. The government should be held responsible for the existing chaotic health services.
In a democratic country, this means that the country has a government ruled by the people, for the people and by the people. A division bench of New York Siddharth Verma and Justice Ajit Kumar gave this order during the hearing of the PIL. The next hearing will be on 26 April.
Knowing the horrors, he did nothing … Curfew like dust in the eye
The government knew about the second wave of the epidemic, but could not prepare at first. People are losing their lives, hospitals in major cities do not have even 10 percent treatment facilities, health workers are falling ill. In the midst of all this, the pretense of the government is of no use.
The government is just throwing dust in the eye by imposing night curfew. If people are dying of not getting proper medical care, then the government is to blame. Even after a year of experience and learning so much, she could not do anything. If anyone sees us, we will laugh that we have so much money to spend on elections, but so little for the health of the people.
