Delhi BJP to distribute 'kadha' to fight Covid-19 - New Delhi News

"Delhi BJP has started a campaign to distribute the decoction to the needy, so that people can be protected from coronavirus by boosting their immunity," said the Delhi BJP Chief Adesh Kumar Gupta on Monday.

He added that BJP cadres will distribute as much as 10 lakh bottles of 'kadha' along with sanitizers and face masks.

He announced that the Delhi BJP has also created a team of doctors that will work as a help desk and advise people. Meanwhile, cadres will carry on the campaign with social distancing norms, said Gupta.

Earlier in the day, Gupta said that he demanded that rates in private hospitals treating COVID-19 patients be fixed, during the all party meeting called by Union Home Minister Amit Shah, who seems to have taken charge to salvage the rising corona tally in the national capital.

On Sunday, Shah held two meetings -- One, with Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal, LG Anil Baijal and Health Minister followed by another meeting with all the Mayors to devise a municipal level strategy.

Earlier, the apex Court came down heavily both on the state and the Centre, calling the handling of the situation in Delhi as "horrendous, horrific, pathetic". As of Monday, there are a total of 41,182 COVID-19 cases in the national capital.
