CM should immediately remove the health minister – Kumaraswamy
In a series of tweets, Kumaraswamy attacked the ruling BJP government and said that hospitals in the state had “turned into death traps”. There were two doctors in the hospital but they were not on duty. Although there was an ambulance, there was no driver. This is a cruel approach to the health system in rural areas. This is a mirror of the inefficiency of the health department.
The JD(S) leader also demanded that Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai should sack the incompetent health minister. He said, the government is the direct reason for this death, the health minister is responsible. If he has conscience, he should resign immediately.
