Satna: Maihar BJP MLA Narayan Tripathi is again in the media headlines. This time he has written a letter to CM Shivraj Singh Chouhan, demanding the status of ‘Corona Warriors’ to the “Jholachap” doctors. While advocating for quacks, Tripathi has called them angels. Also said, ‘These angels should be given the status of corona warriors by making them health guards and health servants. In times of disaster, he has helped in controlling the corona by treating the common people from village to village.
According to the MLA, the poor class had controlled the minor cough and fever in the village itself with their medicine due to lack of money. In such a situation, they should be deployed for treatment in areas without health by giving them proper training. Those who address them as “Jholachap” doctors, they should now speak angels after the corona epidemic.
