Political parties should accept they failed to provide good health care system: Sonu Sood on India’s COVID-19 crisis

New Delhi: Bollywood actor and active social worker Sonu Sood spoke on the topic of oxygen crisis and said “we need to accept that we have failed” to effectively deal with the second wave of the novel coronavirus pandemic and “every political party needs to accept that it failed in providing a good health care system to people of India”.

New Delhi: Bollywood actor and active social worker Sonu Sood spoke on the topic of oxygen crisis and said “we need to accept that we have failed” to effectively deal with the second wave of the novel coronavirus pandemic and “every political party needs to accept that it failed in providing a good health care system to people of India”.

During an exclusive interview with India Ahead, Sonu also expressed his thoughts on how lockdown one was all about the migrant workers trying to get back home, meanwhile, lockdown two this year is all about the hunt for “oxygen and injections”.

“It is the biggest crisis that an Indian must have ever experienced ever. Everyone is trying to save themselves and families are getting wiped every single day in tragic manners. We were not prepared for what was coming. India being such a densely populated country, we could have had early lockdowns. The new wave which has hit UP and Delhi, I would say no-one is able to control,” Sonu Sood said to Bhupendra Chaube.

“A day you speak to the patient he is doing fine and the next day they are collapsing. No one has an idea what is happening. I feel so helpless and I don’t have any words to express the sorrow that I feel every single day because we have failed as humans and system and I think we need to learn from it as if its not now, its never going to happen,” he added.

Speaking on the topic of the “system” should be held accountable for the current COVID-19 crisis in India, Sonu said: ” We have to take the responsibility. Now it is not about blaming who is responsible and now every single political party should come forward and accept its failure. We need to accept that we have failed to provide what people of India deserve,” Sood further said.
