Opposition terms government stand inhumane; BJP says ‘not a single state sent such data’

Opposition leaders on Wednesday criticized the Center’s statement in Parliament about the absence of data on the number of deaths from hypoxia in the second wave of Covid-19. The statement that these leaders said exposed the Center’s insensitivity and dishonesty.

Denial is “false” statement by Center, health minister in Delhi government, Satyendar Jain, on Wednesday said the Center has not even requested data regarding such deaths but the Delhi government has been trying to determine its own numbers by forming a panel.

“TV channels and newspapers report how hospitals run out of oxygen. It is completely wrong and wrong to say that no one dies from lack of oxygen. There have been many deaths due to lack of oxygen in Delhi and many other parts of the country. It’s really sad and regrettable… The center is rubbing salt into the wounds of those who have lost loved ones. Tomorrow, they will even say there are no deaths from Covid-19,” Jain told mediapersons.

The minister then accused the Center of obstructing the Delhi government’s data collection efforts. “The Delhi government has set up a committee to collect data on such deaths and pay 50,000 yen compensation to the families of those who have died. But the Center disbanded the panel through the lieutenant governor. If not, we will have accurate data on the number of deaths due to lack of oxygen in Delhi. I think the Center disbanded the board so they could say that nobody died from the oxygen crisis,” Jain alleged.

Conference Congressman Rahul Gandhi tweeted: “Not just lack of oxygen. When there was a severe lack of sensitivity and truth, it was there and it is now. ”

Tag an assessment report of a consulting organization on India Covid Gandhi tweeted to declare that there have been 500,000 Covid deaths in the country: “The wrong decisions of GOI during the second wave of Covid have killed 500,000 of our sisters, brothers, mothers and fathers.”

AICC Secretary-General KC Venugopal, whose question at the Rajya Sabha received a controversial answer from the junior health minister, has said that he will forward a notice of the breach of privilege.

Shiv Sena leader Sanjay Raut told media in Delhi that the families of those who died due to lack of oxygen should file a lawsuit against the Center for making such a statement. “I’m speechless. For the families who have lost loved ones to medical oxygen, how will they feel when they hear this. These families should file a lawsuit against the government.”

Maintaining that “the dishonesty of the government in Parliament is completely exposed”, CPM leader Sitaram Yechury said Parliament should hold the government accountable for ‘violating parliamentary prerogatives’. He also went to the Center to seek more time to decide on exceptional compensation for the families of Covid casualties.
