Campaign For Pipili Bypoll Continues Amid Covid Crisis

Candidates seen canvassing with a handful of party supporters amid strict adherence to Covid-19 protocols and also creating awareness on importance of following Covid-19

Puri: Amid the mounting cases of Covid-19 in Odisha, campaigning for the Pipili bypoll by the three major political parties in the State continues in full swing with door-to-door visits by the candidates in the Pipili-Delnaga area in Puri district.

Candidates of all the parties are seen canvassing with a handful of party supporters amid strict adherence to Covid-19 protocols. The candidates said they give more priorities to awareness on Covid than the campaigning

“We are continuing our door-to-door campaign with a handful of supports. During campaigning, we are also making people aware of covid-19 and insist them on maintaining appropriate covid behavior and take vaccine shots,” said BJD candidate, Rudra Pratap Maharathy.

“We are getting public support and expect a better result,” he added.

Similarly, BJP candidate Asrit Patnaik said he is also giving more priority to Covid awareness than the poll campaigning. “Election will be held on its way. But, we first advise people to stay safe during this Covid pandemic. We suggest them to obey government’s guidelines to stay away from the virus,” he said.

“We have found huge public support towards the BJP. They want a change this time. We also request people to vote for our party in large numbers to take forward Narendra Modi’s model of development,” he added.

Pipili by-poll was cancelled mid-way after the death of Congress candidate Ajit Mangaraj. The Election Commission had issued a fresh notification fixing May 6 as the date of poll.

After the demise of Mangaraj, Congress has fielded Biswa Keshan Harichandan for the ensuing by-election.

Exam | 2021 | Class 10, 12 Board Exams Will Be Conducted This Year: Andhra CM

Amaravati: Amid the spiralling second Covid wave, Andhra Pradesh chief minister Y.S. Jaganmohan Reddy, on Wednesday, insisted that the state will conduct tenth standard and intermediate (class 12) board exams this year.

He said that the government is conducting Board examinations to ensure that students have a better future and assured them that he has every student’s future in mind while taking this decision.

As only pass certificates would be issued by the states which have not conducted the exams, how will our students get admission in good institutions on the basis of a pass certificate alone, he queried.

Pointing out that the central government has left it to the state governments to decide whether or not to conduct tests in the current scenario, Reddy noted that examinations are underway in some states following strict measures, a statement issued by the government said.

“SSC and Inter examinations are very important to the students as their future depends on those certificates. The state government will ensure safety of every student in the state,” the chief minister was quoted in the statement.

The chief minister’s unequivocal stand comes in the face of a strident campaign by the opposition, especially the TDP, demanding cancellation of the public exams in view of the pandemic.

The chief minister attacked the opposition for their criticism on conducting 10th and Inter examinations. Trying to degrade the government even in the times of disaster, is not good, he said.
