Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Friday held a meeting with the Chief Ministers of 10 states worst hit by the second wave of the deadly coronavirus. The Delhi Chief Minister, Arvind Kejriwal’s discussion with PM Modi became controversial when he started talking about Delhi’s crippling oxygen crisis in the televised meeting.

Kejriwal asked for PM’s guidance and said Delhi hospitals are suffering from an oxygen crisis and this may lead to a big tragedy. Oxygen cylinders were being stopped from entering the city, he added.

People are in major pain due to oxygen shortage. The Delhi government fears a big tragedy may happen due to oxygen shortage, Kejriwal said. He requested PM Modi with folded hands to direct all Chief Ministers to ensure smooth movement of oxygen tankers coming to Delhi.

Will people of Delhi not get oxygen if there is no oxygen-producing plant there? Kejriwal questioned the Centre that whom should he speak to in the central government when an oxygen tanker meant for Delhi is stopped in another state.

Kejriwal urged PM Modi to facilitate the airlift of oxygen from West Bengal and Odisha to resolve the shortage in Delhi. The Chief Minister called for a national policy to tackle the crisis.

The Centre later accused Kejriwal of using the platform to play politics and spread lies on vaccine price.

Kejriwal raised the point of airlifting oxygen but did not know it is already being done, sources said. They also said had done more to provide beds and oxygen than the Delhi government. He chose to spread lies on vaccine prices despite knowing that centre does not keep even one vaccine dose and shares with states only, the sources said.

The meeting was held on a day when India reported 3.32 lakh fresh cases of Covid-19 and 2,263 deaths in 24 hours, touching a new record high since the pandemic broke out in India in January 2020.

As soon as the PM Modi objected to an in-house meeting being telecast live, Kejriwal expressed regret. Kejriwal’s office said today, the chief minister’s address was shared live because there has never been any instruction, written or verbal, from the central government that the said interaction could not be shared live. There have been multiple occasions of similar interactions where matters of public importance which had no confidential information were shared live. However, if any inconvenience was caused we highly regret that.

He said that if they freeze their accounts now, then AAP will get sympathy. As a result after the election, ED will freeze AAP’s bank accounts. He said AAP’s party office will be cleared out, and the party will be brought to the streets.  Kejriwal said these are the 3 plans made by the BJP.

The Delhi chief minister claimed that no gold or money has been recovered from him, and the BJP, by creating false cases has got AAP leaders arrested. Kejriwal recalled that since the time he came to power in 2015, many allegations had been against him by the BJP. He said after the liquor policy scam has happened people are asking them if the scam happened then where is the money. He pointed out that in other places, when raids happen, notes and gold are recovered, but here nothing was found. Kejriwal asked the people that where is all the money?

Rahul Gandhi says Kejriwal will vote for Congress, and he will vote for AAP

Congress leader Rahul Gandhi was addressing an election rally on Saturday where he said that Arvind Kejriwal will vote for a Congress candidate and that he will vote for an AAP candidate in Delhi in the ongoing Lok Sabha elections as a mark of strong bond between the two allies.

He further added workers of Congress and of AAP to work together to ensure the victory of their alliance in all 7 Lok Sabha seats in the national capital. In his address, Gandhi also challenged Prime Minister Narendra Modi for a debate concerning the issues of India. The Congress leader said he is ready to debate with PM Modi whenever and wherever he wants, but he was confident that PM Modi would not come.

Notably, former Supreme Court judges Madan B Lokur and Ajit P Shah and senior journalist N Ram had written to Gandhi and PM Modi recently and invited them to a platform for a debate on the key Lok Sabha election issues. Gandhi said that if the prime minister comes in front of him, he would ask him questions about crony capitalism, unemployment, inflation, and farm issues.

The Wayanad MP said in his address that PM Modi has only worked for 22-25 people. He asked small businessmen from Chandni Chowk, what PM Modi had done for them? He said demonetization, GST, and other taxes had impacted small businessmen. He said billions of rupees of Adani and Ambani had been waived off. Gandhi said BJP is privatising railways and other PSUs as well.

The former Congress president questioned the prime minister about introducing the now-scrapped electoral bond scheme and further accused him of extorting money with the help of central agencies such as the Enforcement Directorate (ED). Gandhi reffered to Delhi as the Brotherhood Capital and said that if people work together with love, there is progress.
