‘Perform yagna, the third wave of Covid will not touch India’: Minister of Parliament Usha Thakur | India News


INDORE: Madhya Pradesh culture minister Usha Thakur, who has been giving controversial comments especially related to the Covid-19 pandemic, on Tuesday made another suggestion by asking people to perform ‘yagna chikitsa’ (ceremonial fire ritual) for four days before the third wave of Covid-19.
India is currently grappling with a devastating second wave of Covid-19 that has swept the nation, crushing the country’s healthcare infrastructure and overburdening front-line medical workers.
Speaking to reporters after opening a Covid Care Center in Indore, “For the purification of the environment, perform Yagna for four days. This is Yagna Chikitsa. In earlier times, our ancestors used to perform yagna chikitsa to get rid of the pandemics. Let us all purify the environment, the third wave of Covid will not even touch India. ”
“According to experts, this wave will attack children first. For this, the Madhya Pradesh government is making full preparations. We will overcome the pandemic successfully,” he added.
Previously, Thakur had recently performed rituals in front of a statue at Indore airport to eradicate Covid-19.
She was criticized for not wearing a mask while visiting a Covid care facility in the recent past.
