Pune shudders as the Government decides to ‘act’
As the Government plans to use the 112 year old Indian Epidemic Act, to combat swine flu in Pune, the city shudders at the mere thought. Under this act, the British Government had inflicted innumerable atrocities on Punekar leading to the assassination of General Rand by the Chaphekar Brothers. The event has been immortalised in the movie ‘22 July 1897’!
3M believes that if the Government does not act swiftly to combat the spread of swine flu, they will meet the same fate as General Rand in the forthcoming elections!
