The steps taken by the State Government to check the spread of this virus has been appreciated not only by the Prime Minister, but even by other States also.  The Congress remained in power for about 50 years in the State as well as at the Centre. There were only 50 ventilators in the State when this virus broke in and I took up the matter with the Prime Minister and immediately 500 new ventilators were provided under the PMCAREs for the State. Today there were over 700 fully functional ventilators in various hospitals in the State.”

 The Fatehpur assembly constituency will soon go to poll as the seat here is lying vacant since the death of Congress MLA Sujjan Singh Pathania in February this year.
