BJP criticizes Shiv Sena’s Sanjay Raut after file case against government comment

BJP Slams Sena

Sanjay Raut said people who have lost relatives to oxygen deprivation should take the central government to court.

New Delhi:

Shiv Sena MP Sanjay Raut’s sharp criticism of the Center’s statement of “no deaths from lack of oxygen” has sparked fire from the BJP, which accused him of “fake fear” and “shameless politics”.

The BJP said today that the Center had relied on information forwarded by the government of Maharashtra, which told the Bombay Supreme Court that not a single patient in the state had died from oxygen deprivation.

“Mr Sanjay Raut, I am baffled by the double language of double defaulters, Shiv Sena and Congress. Please report the number of deaths in Maharashtra state due to oxygen deprivation to the central government and also to the press. The same logic applies to Delhi state, the epicenter, Union minister Meenakshi Lekhi said.

The party also underlined its point in tweets.

“Look how Hippocratic (sic) and shameless Shiv Sena leader Sanjay Raut is. In May 2021, the Thackeray government had filed a report with the Bombay High Court, claiming that no patient died from oxygen deprivation. Center prepared its report based on information forwarded by the state government,” the BJP tweeted.

“In response to this report, Sanjay Raut expressed his false fear and said he was speechless and that a case should be filed against the Center government for this claim. His statements again exposed blatant politics of the MVA government, exactly Shiv Sena,” the party added.

There has been a huge political reaction after the government in the Rajya Sabha said no deaths from oxygen starvation were specifically reported by states and Union Territories during the second Covid wave.

In a written reply to Rajya Sabha on Tuesday, Junior Health Minister Bharati Praveen Pawar said health is a state subject and states and union territories regularly report the number of cases and deaths to the Center. “However, no deaths from oxygen deprivation have been specifically reported by states and UTs,” Ms Pawar added, when asked whether Covid patients died on roads and hospitals as a result of oxygen deprivation.

Mr Raut said today that people who have lost family members to oxygen deprivation in the second wave of Covid should take the central government to court. “I am speechless. For families who have lost their loved ones to the lack of medical oxygen, how would they have felt listening to this. These families should file a case against the government,” he told reporters.

He had also said in parliament yesterday: “Many people have died from oxygen deprivation in several states. The Union government is running away from the truth. It seems that it is the effect of Pegasus (Israeli spyware).”

Mr Raut, whose party Shiv Sena rules Maharashtra in a coalition with the Nationalist Congress and Congress, said it was important to find out whether those whose relatives died gasping for oxygen agreed with the response from the government. Center in Parliament.

The Center also said in parliament that there was an unprecedented surge in demand for medical oxygen during the second wave of April-May.
