Congress Legislature Party (CLP) leader in Meghalaya, Ampareen Lyngdoh, on January 27 said the government’s standard operating procedures (SOPs) to deal with the COVID-19 situation are under fire.
Lyngdoh said that in the first instance chief minister Conrad Sangma has to answer following his alleged violation of the COVID-19 protocols. She added that much debate has emerged on the matter.
The East Shillong legislator said it was a big shock to see the chief minister in the Republic Day function knowing that on January 21 he had announced his COVID status.
“Many observations now have come up and the government’s SOPs are under fire. Public testing positive or those that will test positive in the future will be confused while following these instructions,” the Congress leader said.
“Urgent clarification from the CM is important now so that protocols in place aren’t disrupted or flawed in this crucial time,” Lyngdoh further asserted.
