Thank You For The Smoke Screen!

Pinarayi Vijayan had this to say about the death of 38 newborn infants in Kerala:

The CPI(M) leader alleged that the “conspiracy” was to malign the public health care institutions in the State and destroy the public health sector at the behest of the private hospital “lobby.”

He said: “The superintendent of SAT and a prominent office-bearer of the Indian Medical Association (IMA) were behind the controversy.,” Mr. Vijayan alleged that the IMA office-bearer who had reached Thiruvananthapuram from Palakkad had “conspired with the SAT superintendent.” He said, “a visual media too was part of this caucus.”

Dear Mr. Vijayan, if you are worried about evil interests maligning the public health care institutions there is one simple remedy – fix the alleged issue, spread that news out to the public. Smoke screen tactics won’t help anybody – sheesh!
