Meanwhile, Rajesh Ranjan alias Pappu Yadav has accused the Narendra Modi government of not providing adequate quota of medicines, oxygen and ventilators to Bihar.

“You may have differences with Nitish Kumar but why are you taking revenge against the innocent people of Bihar. There are 5,000 Covid patients dying every day in the state and the crematoriums are also overcrowded. What kind of government this is? Devastations are all over the place,” Yadav said.

“The state government has no control over the medical mafias. The life saving drugs are not available in the market. The mafias are selling life saving injections Remdesivir at Rs 50,000. Even Dexona tablets, Vitamin capsules are not available in the market. There is no regulatory authority in the state to check the menace,” he added.
