As the nation grapples with the Wuhan virus pandemic, the DMK has jumped to the streets to use this crisis as an opportunity to further its leader MK Stalin's image. In what can be termed as an appalling incident, the DMK's medical wing has been doling out medicines like hot samosas.
Medicines like paracetamol, cetirizine, cough syrups and cifran are being distributed in packets printed with an image of our beloved 'dictator' Stalin.
These medicines are being given without any prescription to anyone and everyone. At a time when the government has asked anyone with symptoms of cold, fever and breathlessness to call the 24 x 7 helpline and get medical advice so that they can be quarantined and treated, such foolhardy measures in the name of helping people is bound to cause more harm.
This imprudent act of the DMK violates the Indian Medical Council (Professional conduct, Etiquette and Ethics) Regulations, 2002.
