CM called Modi over oxygen shortage, told PM on Bengal tour: Maharashtra minister

Apr 17, 2021 18:48 IST | By Editorji News Desk

Maharashtra minority affairs minister Nawab Malik claimed on Saturday that state’s chief minister Uddhav Thackeray tried reaching Prime Minister Narendra Modi over the shortage of oxygen and remdesivir but was told he was on a visit to poll-bound West Bengal.

Malik accused Modi of being busy in elections while “people are dying.”

The Prime Minister’s Office, however, refuted Malik’s allegation saying PM Modi himself reviewed the state of oxygen supply on Friday and that the government is in constant touch with the state governments.

Malik’s attack comes at a time when political parties in West Bengal have been holding public rallies with large gatherings with each party training guns at the other over the spread of the coronavirus in the state.
