Ramgopal “Pappu” Lodhi, Bharatiya Janata Party MLA from Jasrana, Uttar Pradesh faced a harrowing experience when his wife Sandhya Lodhi needed treatment for her Covid-19 infection at SN Medical College in Agra. Lodhi detailed his experience in a video message that was widely circulated on social media.

Both the MLA and his wife were being treated for Covid-19 at Om Hospital in Firozabad when the woman’s condition worsened and she was referred to the medical college in Agra, Live Hindustan reported. Despite assurance from Agra’s District Magistrate Prabhu N Singh, Sandhya Lodhi was returned by the guards.

The MLA’s wife was finally given admission in the Covid ward at the medical college in Agra, but he has been unable to get an update on her health for three days. “Only god knows how my wife is. She has no access to food or water. I hope this never happens to a poor person,” Ramgopal Lodhi said.
