Mahibadhoo constituency MP Ahmed Tariq has stated that the only thing evident from the COVID19 pandemic is the negligence by the current government. He said this today while speaking at the parliament session.
While debating on the motion to amend the constitution, MP Tariq alleged that incumbent president Ibrahim Mohamed Solih’s refusal to declare state of emergency is due to him evading his responsibilities as head of state, instead relying on the Director General of HPA for managing the crisis.
He also questioned the ruling party on why the borders weren’t closed following public calls for a lockdown and that it resulted in COVID 19 coming to our shores. He also raised concern on the 2 Italian tourists who were allowed to leave the country before their test results had returned and alleged that the children of the senior members of the ruling party were allowed to enter the city bypassing the quarantine.
