Aam Aadmi Party has asked Health Minister Vishwajit Rane to stop playing with the lives of Goans and asserted that Goans need vaccines to prevent the covid spread and not Ivermectin tablets and alleged that the tablets are being shoved down the throats of Goans for BJP to get kickbacks to fund the next elections.
Dr Marianho Godinho, head of AAP Goa medical cell questioned the logic of giving the tablets to Goans when nowhere in the world including other states of the country this tablet is used for prophylaxis treatment which is nothing but treatment to prevent the disease and when WHO has specifically not recommended its use and nowhere else in the world it is adopted.
Mhambre, pointed out that in the last 19 days more than 1000 Goans have died due to covid and lambasted the so called expert committee that Vishwajit Rane keeps referring to with regards to treating covid cases.
“There is no expert committee and it is merely a sham to cover up Vishwajit’s misdeeds and why is he not naming even one member of this so called committee,” asked Rahul while regretting that even the Indian Medical Association was not consulted on the matter as clarified by the doctor association.
He alleged that the tablets are being forced upon Goans so that Vishwajit and the Bharatiya Janata Party get kickbacks from procuring the tablets which money would then be used to fund the next elections and also asked the government to specify whether a tender was invited to supply the tablets and if so who had bagged the contract and for how much money.
