Here's the most disconcerting news. At a time when the Corona's latest wave is rampaging through the length and breadth of the country, all precautions are thrown to winds in Nagarjunasagar bypolls. At least 14 politicians campaigning in Nagarjunasagar are said to be covid positive.

What is more shocking is that these leaders have plunged themselves headlong into the campaign despite knowing their covid status. Thus, they are not only endangering themselves, but are also putting the lives of those around them in peril. According to highly placed sources, these leaders belong to all the three major contenders in the election.

Sources also revealed that these leaders are all from Hyderabad and are constantly travelling between Nagarjunasagar and Hyderabad. What is more worrisome is the fact that these leaders are mobilising crowds in a big way for the election campaign. Huge crowds can be a perfect recipe for disaster and the virus can spread faster. Also, during the campaign, covid precautions are completely ignored.
