Speaking to reporters  at  the District Congress  Office on July 18, Friday, he said the decision of the administration to  dedicate Wenlock as a Covid Hospital has hit hard people with other ailments.

Rai accused the state government as well as the district administration of failing to control the spread of  Covid-19. He said the  keenness with which the government was working to control spread of the infection initially was not seen now.

He  stressed the need for random testing to control  spread of Covid-19  in the district. He also pointed out that as many as 30 lives have been  lost in Dakshina Kannada district alone while in the whole of Kerala so far only 27 people  have succumbed to Covid-19 infection.

Rai also demanded that 10 ambulances should be allotted to each taluk for the benefit of Covid patients.

Former mayors Kavitha Sanil, Shashidhar Hegde, Opposition leader Abdul Ravoof, Corporator Naveen D’Souza and others were present.
