COVID-19: Take Tips From Odisha, BJD MP Tells Parliament


New Delhi: It took Biju Janata Dal (BJD) MP Dr Sasmit Patra only one minute on Monday to give a six-point suggestion to the Rajya Sabha on how to fight Coronavirus.

He suggested that a dedicated sensitisation session should be held for the MPs in Parliament on the lines of what is being done in Odisha by the Naveen Patnaik-led government.
