"The lack of scientific approach by the Modi-led BJP government has worsened the COVID-19 crisis. The AIADMK government in Tamil Nadu, too, has become a puppet in the hands of the central government. The promotion of unscientific methods to fight COVID-19 is just one example of it," said Dr S Krishnaswamy. He is a retired professor of Bioinformatics from Madurai Kamaraj University. He is also the treasurer of All India People’s Science Network (AIPSN) and former president of the Tamil Nadu Science Forum (TNSF).
