Govt's rollback on sale of 'donated' plasma victory of people: Bhagwant Mann

Chandigarh, Jul 30 (UNI) Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) state unit president and MP Bhagwant Mann, reacting to the recent rollback by Punjab government on its absurd decision to sell the ‘donated’ plasma (blood cells) at Rs 20,000 per unit to corona patients undergoing treatment at various hospitals, calling it the victory of people in the state.
Mann had a piece of advisory for Chief Minister Capt. Amarinder Singh, saying he should introspect and reconsider dozens such decisions as were suicidal to the people of Punjab.
In a statement issued from party headquarters late on Thursday evening, Mann said Chief Minister Capt Amarinder Singh had been under pressure to rollback on the malicious decision following humongous public outrage, adding the leaders of political parties, including the Aam Aadmi Party, deserved a huge round of applause for pitching in against the decision.
