Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia on Wednesday alleged that Union Health Minister Mansukh Mandaviya dismissed the need to form a panel to probe oxygen shortage-related deaths in the national capital.
Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia said the Delhi government "wanted to account for the reason behind deaths" during the pandemic and had constituted a "Death Audit Committee", but the centre rejected the plan.
No matter what the govt says, the oxygen crisis claimed lives. Denying it means we have not learnt lessons.
Union Minister Giriraj Singh replied to Rahul Gandhi in Italian after the latter criticised the government for claiming no oxygen shortage deaths were reported in the second wave.
But, the government said, there was an unprecedented surge in demand for medical oxygen during the second Covid wave and it peaked at nearly 9,000 MT.
Modi has been holding a number of meetings in this regard amid apprehensions of a third wave of the pandemic.
