New Delhi: The BJP’s Delhi unit on Saturday put up a series of hoardings across the national capital in which it criticized the Arvind Kejriwal-led government for spending Rs.526 crore for its advertisement campaign.

In the hoardings, the Bharatiya Janata Party asked Chief Minister Kejriwal to answer “why have you wasted Rs.526 crore on publicity when this fund could be utilised to put up five lakh cameras for women’s security”.


The BJP hoardings also said as many as “200 new schools and 50 new colleges can be opened with this money and people can get 2,000 new buses.

“Five lakh people can get pension for one year and one lakh youth can get employment while 1,000 unauthorised colonies can get drinking water with that amount of money”.

The development came after the Aam Aadmi Party government had installed hoardings asking Prime Minister Narendra Modi not to intervene in its functioning.

“Pradhanmantri sir, please! Delhi sarkar ko kam karne dijiye. Delhi sarkar theek kam kar rahi hai. (Prime minister sir, please let the Delhi government work. The Delhi government is working fine),” said the AAP’s hoardings.

Later, the AAP removed these hoardings to pay homage to former president A.P.J. Abdul Kalam, who passed away earlier this week.

Reacting to the BJP’s hoardings, AAP spokesperson Dilip Pandey told IANS: “Instead of doing serious politics they are indulging in opportunistic politics.

“The AAP is already working on the points raised in their (BJP’s) hoardings. For instance we are deploying marshals in buses for women safety,” Pandey said.

“BJP should let us do our work, the public knows what we are doing even if they don’t,” he added.

"We've always known," says Debbie Staples, a great-great-granddaughter of Green's who heard the story from her grandmother. … "He made the whiskey, and he taught Jack Daniel. And people didn't believe it … it's hurtful. I don't know if it was because he was a Black man."

The findings from preliminary studies on possible stem cell-based Covid-19 treatments are frequently being exaggerated through press releases, social media and uncritical news media reports.

Amid the rush to find quick treatments for Covid-19 last year, the world saw a global race to find new stem cell-based treatments. Now, researchers report that such therapies were filled with violations of government regulations, inflated medical claims and distorted public communication. There are reports of patients suffering physical harm -- including blindness and death -- from unproven stem cell therapies.

"Efforts to rapidly develop therapeutic interventions should never occur at the expense of the ethical and scientific standards that are at the heart of responsible clinical research and innovation," said lead study author Laertis Ikonomou, associate professor of oral biology at University at Buffalo, New York. There are clinics offering unproven and unsafe "stem cell" therapies that promise to prevent Covid-19 by strengthening the immune system or improving overall health, the researchers noted in the paper published in the journal Stem Cell Reports.
