Former Congress chief Rahul Gandhi again targeted the government over the deaths due to shortage of oxygen during the second wave of Covid, saying everything will be remembered. In a short tweet in Hindi "Sab yaad rakha jaega" Congress leader Rahul Gandhi on Thursday, slamming out at the Central government after it said no Covid-19 deaths had been reported due to shortage of oxygen.
Gandhi shared a video on Twitter about the "truth of oxygen shortage" and said, "Indian government fails to protect right to life and Health in Second Wave of Covid-19 pandemic." The government has faced flak after it informed the Rajya Sabha that no deaths were reported due to lack of oxygen during the second wave. It further showed pictures of people waiting in long queues to refill oxygen cylinders and an article about a Goa hospital where 75 people allegedly died due to lack of oxygen supply.
Congress Rajya Sabha MP K.C. Venugopal on Thursday moved a privilege motion against Minister of State for Health Bharti Pravin Pawar who informed the Rajya Sabha two days ago that no one died due to shortage of oxygen during the second wave of the Covid pandemic.
