Diesel inching close to Rs 100 per litre in Telangana | | Sidnaz Blog


HYDERABAD: After petrol, diesel price is inching close to the Rs 100 per litre mark. On Wednesday, Adilabad and Wanaparthy logged Rs 99 a litre. The price of diesel in the city is Rs 97 a litre.
Along with petrol, diesel prices are also increasing. Price of diesel in Mumbai, Chennai and Kolkata is oscillating between Rs 92 and Rs 96. Diesel crossed the Rs 100 mark in some places in Madhya Pradesh.

Sources claim that consistent increase in fuel prices is due to an uptick in the international oil markets, where both product and crude prices have been going up for the past few months on increasing demand. Also, high taxes by the Centre and states were burning holes in the pockets of citizens. “I had bought a diesel car two years ago thinking that I could save some money, but that looks impossible now with increasing prices,” VK Sameer, a private employee said.
The prices of vegetables and other essentials have skyrocketed for the past few months due to Covid-induced lockdown. “Life is becoming a struggle for people,” said Mani Jyothy, a housewife.

Hyderabad lockdown: Medical shop workers, doctors face | Sidnaz Blog


While many healthcare professionals and pharmacists reached their workplaces late, pharmacists in Nalgonda and Adilabad decided to stop operating after 10 am citing police high-handedness.

HYDERABAD: Medical professionals, medical shop workers, distributors and even donors found it difficult to travel during the lockdown on Sunday with the police stopping their vehicles at several places.
Further, plasma and blood donors who had ventured out to donate blood for needy patients and had necessary passes were slapped challans. In one such incident, a blood donor, Gautham C, who was returning home after donating blood at Osmania General Hospital, was fined Rs 1,000 for ‘disobedience of orders in lockdown S 51(b)’ of DM Act, as per the challan copy. This was done despite the donor showing proof of blood donation.
Citing the problems faced by doctors, Dr Ashish Chauhan tweeted on Saturday, “Today medical doctors and health related vehicles were tremendously harassed. The Senior most police officer at Shaikpet gave answers like we don’t care if you are Senior Anaesthetist” on your way to surgery.”
While many healthcare professionals and pharmacists reached their workplaces late, pharmacists in Nalgonda and Adilabad decided to stop operating after 10 am citing police high-handedness. “Day before yesterday, there were a lot of issues faced by medical shop workers and distributors as some were stopped and even beaten up after showing ID cards. So we kept the shops closed post 10 am on Saturday. The issue was resolved on Sunday after the district police called us. We have rolled back our decision after closing shops for two days,” said Venkatpati S, president, District Chemists and Druggists Association.
While distributors in Hyderabad too faced some issues, medical shops were functioning with delays and less staff. Others faced problems in obtaining the mandatory passes to operate during lockdown hours. “sir, we are pharma and medical supplies agency in Hyderabad and from last 2 days we are trying for Epass and every time we apply it’s getting rejected,” tweeted Praveen from the twitter handle @praveen5757 on Sunday.
