With Congress state legislator KC Venugopal set to hold a concession motion at 10 a.m. to counter the Centre’s “lie” about deaths due to lack of oxygen supply during the second wave, parliament could witness a storm session on Thursday.
“The government has lied about Govt’s deaths due to lack of oxygen,” he said. The government had told the state assembly on Tuesday that no deaths were specifically reported due to lack of oxygen by the states and UTs during the second Govt-19 wave. Harsh criticism from opposition leaders.
Patient deaths in hospitals due to lack of life-saving gas during the second wave peak in April-May have been reported from several states as the demand for medical oxygen has increased.
BJP spokesperson Sambit Bhadra on Wednesday said the response given by the Center was based on figures provided by the states and UTs as health is a state matter.
What the Opposition Says:
Congress: Rahul Gandhi said that the wrong decisions taken by the Indian government during the second wave of Govt were true, 50 lakhs of our sisters, brothers, mothers and fathers were killed.
