K'taka Minister says his words were misinterpreted

Bengaluru, Jul 16(UNI) Karnataka Minister for Health and Family Welfare B Sriramulu on Thursday clarified that his remarks have been misinterpreted, wherein he apparently said that ''only God can save people from Covid''.
The Bharatiya Janata Party leader slammed KPCC President D K Shivakumar for spreading false information and said that my words were not meant to cause panic among the masses.
''Respected Shivakumar, this is a clarification regarding my words that have been misinterpreted and misunderstood. While responding to claims of the opposition that the government’s negligence, irresponsibility and the lack of coordination among ministers are responsible for the rise in cases in the state, I stated that ‘these accusations are far from the truth. People need to be aware and cautious to avoid the spread of the virus. This plays a vital role in controlling the pandemic. If we fail at this crucial step the situation can get complicated. And if things go worse, then only God can save us'', Mr Sriramulu said in a series of posts on Twitter.
He further said, ''These were the words used out of caution. There’s no need to create panic in the public.''
The Minster slammed the Congress for engaging in political mudslinging and called the allegations of divide between state cabinet ministers over Covid-19 mismanagement as ''baseless'’.
''Our government led by Chief Minister BS Yediyurappa is working round the clock. This is a difficult situation for the whole world and we all are doing our best for the people of our state to win the battle against this pandemic,'' he added.
