NEW DELHI — The Welfare Party of India on Tuesday launched a month-long campaign seeking resignation of Prime Minister Narendra Modi. The slogan for the campaign, which will continue until June 24, “Bemar Desh ki yahi Pukar, Gaddi Chhodo Modi Sarkar”.

The Modi government has come under fire from opposition, critics and even BJP supporters over the mismanagement of Covid-19 pandemic, particularly the ongoing 2nd wave, that has wreaked havoc in the country consuming thousands daily.

“India is at the peak of perhaps its greatest public health emergency as the Modi government miserably failed in assessing the intensity of the 2nd wave and was responsible for its exponential rise by holding huge election rallies and permitting Kumbh Mela,” WPI said.

During the campaign, the party plans to undertake various programmes including, press conferences, memorandum to President of India, demonstrations and webinars highlighting various issues.

“Thousands of people died because of a lack of oxygen cylinders, non-availability of beds in the hospital or dearth of ICU facilities and even due to non-availability of hospitals, doctors and paramedic staff. The situation is so pathetic that ambulances are not available in emergencies to take serious patients to the hospitals or even to take the dead bodies to shamshan ghat or burial grounds. Poor people are compelled to throw away the dead bodies in Ganges because they cannot afford to perform the last rites. Government completely failed to stop the black marketing of medicines, oximetres, oxygen cylinders. Hospitals are charging exorbitant prices from the patients. Private hospitals and ambulances are exploiting the needy,” said a statement issued by WPI.

“The Modi government’s incompetence, stubbornness, and refusal to listen to constructive advice from educators and experts and the delay in taking decisions, has led to confusion and put the future of students at stake,” the statement further said.

WPI urged the government to accept full responsibility for the health catastrophe in the country and fix the poor health care system and take complete responsibility for those who died due to Covid because of the failure in the system and should give compensation to their families.
