Bengaluru: As Mumbai link surfacing in some COVID-19 cases in Mandya district in Karnataka, JDS leader and former chief minister H D Kumaraswamy on Friday blamed the district administration for the situation, accusing it of not quarantining 7,000 labourers who ‘returned’ from the Maharashtra capital.

“The information we have is that there are about 16,000 labourers from Mandya were working in Mumbai of which 7,000 people reached the district. None of them were quarantined properly,” Kumaraswamy told reporters in Bengaluru.

He claimed the district, a stronghold of JDS, was staring at a major spurt in cases due to the careless attitude of the district administration.

“Government should initiate action against those who are responsible for the laxity,” he said.

However, he did not specify when the 7,000 workers returned to Mandya.
