- Bhaskar reached the homes of the victims’ families – brought out the truth about the deaths due to lack of oxygen
During the second wave of the Karena epidemic, there were reports of death of many patients due to lack of oxygen in many states including Rajasthan, Delhi, MP, Karnataka. But a day earlier, the Center gave a statement in Parliament that there was no death due to oxygen in the country. Because the state governments have not reported a single death due to lack of oxygen.
At the same time, Rajasthan’s Health Minister Dr. Raghu Sharma said in a conversation with Bhaskar – not only in Rajasthan, there have been deaths due to lack of oxygen in the entire country. There have been so many deaths that they are not even counted. We made several requests to the Center regarding the shortage of oxygen in the state. Wrote 50 letters, but oxygen was not sent as per our requirement. People were wandering on the streets for oxygen cylinders.
Transport Minister Pratap Singh Khachariyawas said- CM Gehlot was begging for oxygen from the center with folded hands. On the other hand, on Wednesday, Congress, AAP and other opposition parties accused the House of misleading the House.
Congress leader Rahul Gandhi wrote, ‘It wasn’t just the lack of oxygen. There was a huge lack of sensitivity and truth – even then, it is still there.
Bhaskar has the evidence of death of 8 patients due to lack of oxygen in 5 districts of Rajasthan. These include 4 from Jaipur, 2 from Kota, one each from Jodhpur-Baran and Bikaner. In Jaipur, on April 28, at 12 midnight, four people died due to lack of oxygen at Khandaka Hospital in Kalwar.
On the other hand, Congress leader Kapil Sibal said,’ the Center made a misleading statement in the House. This is unforgivable.’ At the same time, BJP spokesperson Sambit Patra said, ‘The data of death due to lack of oxygen had to be sent to the states. The states have not given the report, so what will be said?’
