High Court suggests appointing Officers for celebs helping with Covid Drugs

The Bombay high court on Wednesday said the state should appoint nodal officers to contact film stars and politicians who are helping the people to obtain remdesivir and other drugs required for the treatment of COVID19.
Chief justice Dipankar Datta and Justice GS Kulkarni asked Additional Solicitor General Anil Singh, Union Government's Counsel to arrange a video conference between the Maharashtra govt and the center to have a conversation on the gap between the need and the supply of the treatment aid required for the state.
"If there is a difference in the figures given by the Centre and the state, then a problem exists at the root level. Why can't an officer of the state and the Centre sit and discuss via video conferencing?" The HC said.
The HC directed the Union Government to inform on the next hearing date(May 19) about measures taken to address the shortage of remdesivir and ensure the manufacturers appointed for the state supply the requisite amount of remdesivir.
"There is this film star who is helping people across the country. He is loved by everyone. People tag him on Twitter for help. They say he is even better than the government," Advocate Rajesh Inamdar said.
He also said the state hadn't received any stock of Tocilizumab since May 4.
He also questioned how the government hospitals are not getting enough stock despite all help.
To this, the HC said, "Why don't you appoint nodal officers for film stars and politicians? They (stars and politicians) will have blessings of God. If they are helping people, we will not come in their way. But, why not appoint nodal officers to ensure help reaches all those in need."
