New Delhi, June 16 (IANS) Key BJP leader B.L. Santhosh continuing his onslaught on the Kejriwal government over its handling of the pandemic in the national capital, has alleged that while the AAP government prefers to communicate with hospitals through circulars, Home Minister Amit Shah chooses to be on the spot.
This comes hours after Shah visited and interacted with Delhi’s Lok Nayak Jai Prakash (LNJP) hospital staff, amid huge spike in Covid-19 cases as total touched 42,829 and deaths around 1,400.
BJP’s General Secretary (Organisation) B.L. Santhosh, who technically comes next to party President J.P. Nadda, tweeted: “In democracy dialogue is the first factor. But @ArvindKejriwal & his @AamAadmiParty want to talk with people, officers, Police, Hospitals, doctors, neighbouring states, Union Govt thru’ Media & circulars. Alienated neighbouring states.”
He went on to allege, “Arvind Kejriwal issued notices to hospitals, played with numbers, failed to ramp up facilities. Above all, failed to communicate. When Narendra Modi-led Govt intervenes through Amit Shah, people feel the change. It requires strength of character to administer a state.”
This charge comes a day after the union home minister made the surprise visit to capital’s LNJP hospital to review Covid situation.
Even on Monday, soon after Shah’s visit to the Delhi government-run hospital, Santhosh said, “Home Minister Amit Shah visits LNJP Hospital, Delhi to review operations and preparedness. Till date, the Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal did not find time to visit hospitals. Governance is never a priority for anarchists.”
Since Sunday, Shah visibly took charge to control the spiralling Covid tally in the national capital with back to back meetings followed by specific orders to ramp up testing and attaching 6 IAS officers to aid Delhi to fight against the pandemic.
