New Delhi: The Delhi High Court has commented on the illegal purchase and distribution of coronavirus drugs against the foundation of Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) MP Gautam Gambhir, saying they helped the needy when the government failed to provide oxygen and medicines. The court said such action against them would not be tolerated. The Delhi government's drug controller department had earlier told the court that the foundation was found guilty of illegal purchases and distribution.
The High Court said that you are using it against political parties, we will not allow it to happen. The court also questioned the Delhi Police whether the police had taken any such action against any gurudwara, temple, or other organizations helping at that time. During the hearing, the court was informed that a report on Gautam Gambhir Foundation has been submitted. The next hearing in the case will be on August 5.
The drug controller informed the high court that the Rohini district court has taken cognizance of the Delhi drug controller's complaint against BJP MP Gautam Gambhir's foundation and issued summons to the alleged accused. Gautam Gambhir had filed an application in the Delhi High Court objecting to his comments and accused him of causing serious damage to his reputation. The court in its order has clarified that the comments made in our orders should not affect the proceedings in the lower court case.
