War against COVID-19: MP’s body count rises to 2,898

28 Oct 2020 | 1:57 AM

Bhopal, Oct 27 (UNI) The fatality figure owing to the ‘millennium scourge’ mounted to 2,898 in Madhya Pradesh where eight fresh demises were reported on Tuesday even as the infected tally touched 1,68,483 with 514 more sufferers being detected during analysis of 19,223 specimens.
A Health Services Directorate bulletin issued tonight pegged the active cases at 10,353 – a statistic that is providentially displaying a downward trend. Indore District had the dubious distinction of spawning the highest 112 new instances; Bhopal 86; Jabalpur 46; Khargone and Harda 18 each; Gwalior 15; Betul, Sidhi and Balaghat 14 each; Satna 13; Sagar and Khandwa 12 each. An encouraging fact was that no fresh patient was recorded in Damoh, Chhatarpur, Alirajpur, Tikamgarh, Ashoknagar, Agar-Malwa and Niwari.

The silver lining is that 1,55,232 individuals recuperated; 1,010 of them on this very day.

BJP ignores youths: Nath

28 Oct 2020 | 1:09 AM

Gwalior, MP, Oct 27 (UNI) In a tirade against the saffron camp, Madhya Pradesh Congress Committee President Kamal Nath on Tuesday accused the former of turning Nelson’s eye to youngsters’ future and underlined that the ongoing by-polls would determine the tomorrow of the state’s daughters plus sons.
“The young generation shall create a new Madhya Pradesh! In fact, one-and-a-half decades of Bharatiya Janata Party rule witnessed more closure than establishment of industrial units. The state was identified with mafias and adulterators. It could not emerge as a manufacturing hub despite being surrounded by five other states. The agrarian sphere remained underdeveloped. Our hardworking cultivator brethren should receive proper returns for their yield. At this juncture, we have to identify those individuals responsible for developmental backwardness of Gwalior-Chambal region,” the erstwhile chief minister averred while on the campaign trail in Gwalior East constituency.
