Sudip Bandyopadhyay speaks during Calling Attention Motion on Encephalitis
Madam, I am aware of the gravity of the situation. The issue raised here today is serious; I know that because in the past I had the responsibility of the Health Ministry of the country. The situation is alarming and horrible, Madam.
The Government of India must rise to the occasion and make it a priority to deal with the issue.
Madam, in the recently-concluded Assembly elections, people have taught them a lesson; everyone is aware that Trinamool won 211 seats. People were happy with the work done by our government. I am confident the State Government will take appropriate measures in Bengal also.
