Mamata Banerjee’s advice of ‘Opening doors and windows help Coronavirus escape’ is bizarre
Bengaluru: Coronavirus has brought the world to a grinding halt. At the same time, it has also exposed people in power like West Bengal chief minister Mamata Banerjee and their ludicrous statements.
As reported by various channels, Mamata Banerjee’s advice to doctors as they sought portable air conditioners has made them really wonder!
She said, “Remember this thing: Opening doors and windows help Coronavirus escape.”
She further informed, “Whenever I travel by car, I keep the windows open. I do not have many windows or doors at my home. But I keep them open as and when possible. The entry of sunlight or outside air into the room helps the virus escape.”
Another wisdom that she gave: “Assuming that doctors work for 8 hours, the portable air-conditioners will work for 4-5 hours. If possible, open the doors and windows for 1 to 1.5 hours. Do you know why? The virus will go out (of the room). This will be good for them.”
Last month, Banerjee had exhibited her helplessness and said, “It is not in my hands anymore. Now I have nothing to do. You can sleep with corona by your side. Make it your pillow. I am sorry.”
It is very pertinent to note that when the Centre had dispatched inter-ministerial teams to West Bengal to help the state government in dealing with the crisis, she had expressed her resentment.
She had even termed it “India’s most callous team”.
Instead of being thankful to the Centre, Mamata had taken umbrage and played politics by saying Bengal had been nitpicked as it was a non-BJP state and added that BJP wanted to portray TMC in a bad light as it would go to polls next year.
Mamata had also accused the centre of taking a unilateral decision in sending the team. But sources had said that the centre had shot back saying that the team had been deputed under the authority conferred on the central government under Section 35 of the Disaster Management Act, 2005, which in turn authorises the Centre to take all such measures.
