After the state government gave the green signal after the intervention of the AP High Court, the conditions for the distribution of three variants of B. Anandaiah’s herbal preparation are in place from Monday.
Mr. Anandaiah has made elaborate arrangements for sourcing the ingredients through his network of volunteers.
However, the government refused to approve the eye drops pending studies by experts on their effectiveness.
‘Bhoomi Puja’ was performed on Saturday for the makeshift sheds in Krishnapatnam with the blessing of Sri Govindananda Saraswati Swami of Hampi, wishing a speedy recovery to those who sought them.
In order to avoid crowds in the village and in compliance with the COVID-19 protocols, the district administration has made arrangements for the decentralized distribution of the herbal preparation.
It appealed to people from other places not to rush to Nellore or Krishnapatnam in the face of the looming second wave of the pandemic and instead seek preparation online from the Nellore District Collector KVN Chakradhar Babu.
The website for this purpose will be announced later, said Sarvepalli MLA Kakani Govardhan Reddy of YSRCP.
The district administration will, with the help of the local officials, arrange for the herbal preparation to be distributed in other districts, he added. First, the COVID-19 patients would be preferred and later others looking for it as an immunity booster, he clarified.
Demand within the Sarvepalli Assembly segment would be met first, said Mr Anandaiah.
Meanwhile, TDP politburo member Somireddy Chandramohan Reddy called for action against those who published a website, allegedly with the support of ruling YSRCP officials for making quick money by courier delivery of the preparation to one arranged high price.
He threatened to report to the police cybercriminal police if the government did not intervene immediately.
