Centre wants states to say there were no deaths due to oxygen shortage, says Manish Sisodia
NEW DELHI: Deputy chief minister Manish Sisodia on Friday said Lieutenant Governor Anil Baijal has again rejected the Delhi go nment's proposal to form a panel to "investigate deaths due to oxygen shortage" in the national capital.
No one can deny that Delhi grappled with an oxygen crisis in April and May during the second Covid wave and also no one can deny that people died in the capital due to shortage of oxygen, he said during an online press conference.
"We had resubmitted a file for the constitution of a panel to probe deaths due to oxygen shortage. The LG (lieutenant governor) is saying that there is no need for that," Sisodia said
The deputy chief minister said that on one hand, the Centre has been asking states to tell how many people died due to oxygen shortage and on the other, "you have not been allowing us to investigate such deaths". "Then how will states tell?" he asked.
"That means the Centre wants us to give in writing that no death occurred due to the shortage of oxygen. It will be a big lie," Sisodia said.
He cmed that the Centre was responsible for oxygen mismanagement in April and May and whether it was deliberate or a mistake is a matter of investigation.
The Centre will have to accept that it was responsible for the oxygen crisis, Sisodia said.
shameless Delhi govt ... cry babies
You yourself is the biggest investigator in the world & you have already investigated so why are you feeling shy of writing to centre go nment about deaths due to shortage of O2 which you have cmed.You want someone else shoulder to blame centre whereas everyone knows that O2 shortage was due to mismanagement of transportation & storage etc managed by you.We all know that you people are best when it comes to blame others.
Slamming Centre, Sisodia has the only work and he would carry it on in the remaining period of his tenure.
Lets rename Delhi govt as press conference govt. I feel this is what they do the most
AAP Govt did nothing but indulged in theatrics during second wave and before it. Why didn't they create addl hosps during six yrs of their rule? Why couldn't they predict oxy shortage b4hand and create PSA type oxy plants in hosps tht they r doing now.
Some one should tell this Sisodia that he should con trate more on making Delhi better for living. Why u pople have done except announcing free ricity. If ur govt have so much money why did not u installed oxygen plants
you shisodia and dramebaz kejriwal are biggest threat to India....who first gain people's fa th by false promises and then make them fool by doing nothing but dramebazi.
We are fed up with continuing blaming by AAP. If there is any competition for blaming game, AAP will win gold medal
How come such a fool become education minister of Delhi. He keeps uttering nonsense all the time. It was the biggest failure of Delhi govt to handle and provide proper Oxygen supply to the hospitals in capital city. Delhi has the best hospitals and best doctors of north Indian states and others too.
Shameless kajeri and his paltu are responsible for the Delhi covid crisis
allha ka banday
utter failed govt only way to come out of it to blame center this idiot Sisodia takla
Shameless Delhi govt, AAP and Manish Sisodia. When deaths were happening were you illiterate at that time? Couldn't you found the cause of death. At that time you were busy passing your failures to central govt. We couldn't know what Delhi govt was doing other than crying all over.
Now you are trying to play po itics by just manipulating numbers. AAPion kitana
Y AAP has not done anything other than Blaming Others for all their innumerable Failures, just in about 10 Yrs.?. Kudos for their Achievement in record number of Failures!!.
Sisodia you are squarely responsible for Oxygen mismanagement in Delhi and thereby killing Delhites.
Your place is Tihar jail where you and Kejri will finally lend.
I live in Delhi and can say for sure that Delhi govt did ZERO preparations after the 1st wave......... they are directly responsible for all the deaths that took place due to covid.
This is a poor excuse to run away from law. Killers need to go to the gallows.
this loser was about to lose ion....
Give specific case list in your report which was supposed to be submitted by 13.08.21 by your go nment and stop crying.
Loers and killers are always shameless and antinationals.
