A number of MLAs, across party lines, in Gujarat have come forward to provide LAD funds for fighting the infectious disease after the state government last week announced that it will allow MLAs in state to spend up to Rs 25 lakh more than the grants they currently can spend on civil hospitals, government dispensaries, hospitals operated by municipal corporations and municipalities and on medical equipment and appliances. Member of Legislative Assembly Local Area Development (MLALAD) is a scheme that enables each MLA to undertake small development works in his or her constituency.

State Minister for Home Pradeepsinh Jadeja, too, said he would give Rs 25 lakh to Singarva health centre in Daskroi taluka of Ahmedabad from his MLA grants for purchasing equipment for fighting the infection.

On April 30, Vimal Chudasama, the sitting Congress MLA from Somnath Assembly constituency, allocated Rs 25 lakh for setting up an oxygen plant at Alif Hospital.
