This is the fourth Covid death in Madhya Pradesh in two weeks after a long breather. Two of these were in Indore, and one each in Bhopal and Jabalpur. All of them were elderly people.
The 81-year-old was admitted for another ailment on Monday and later tested positive for Covid, officials said. CMHO Dr BS Saitya said, "He was admitted in a critical condition as he had breathing issues. He had many comorbidities as well." This is Indore's second Covid death in a week. The first death in MP in the recent spike in infections happened on April 4 in Bhopal
Despite rise in infections, testing remains low
Action on the issue will be taken on the basis of directives issued by the chief minister’s office.
District officers will make a list of registered and unregistered madrasas, and send it to the government. So far registration of madarsas was not mandatory in MP. The government has no data on the actual number of madarsas in the state, the strength of students or what syllabus is taught. There are around 2,650 registered madarsas in MP. Every registered madarsa gets a yearly grant of Rs 25,000 from the state government. Officials believe more than 500 unregistered madarsas are operating in the state.
“Illegal madrasas and institutions in Madhya Pradesh, where lessons in bigotry are being taught, will be reviewed. Bigotry and extremism will not be tolerated,” the CM tweeted after a lawand-order assessment meeting on Wednesday.
