IMCT team accuses Bengal govt of violating MHA order
APURVA Chandra, the leader of the Inter-Ministerial Central Team (IMCT) to help the Mamata Banerjee government contain the spread of COVID-19, wrote two strong-worded letters to chief secretary Rajiva Sinha on Saturday expressing concern.

Chandra said in his letter, the state government gave half-hour notice for a visit to hospitals, quarantine centres and containment zones. He also accused the state government of violating the MHA order as the chief secretary issued statements saying senior officers of the state government cannot waste their time accompanying the IMCT.

Chandra accused the state government of not responding to its four letters that were sent since the team landed in Bengal on April 20 and not providing PPEs while visiting hospitals and quarantine centres.
