New Delhi: Congress leader Priyanka Gandhi Vadra on Wednesday attacked the Yogi Adityanath dispensation over the reported mock drill at a private hospital in Agra in which oxygen supply was allegedly cut off for five minutes, and asked if the Uttar Pradesh government will bring out the truth and punish those guilty.
The Agra administration on Tuesday ordered a probe after a video clip surfaced in which the owner of a private hospital there was purportedly heard saying that he conducted a “mock drill” in which oxygen supply was cut off for Covid patients for five minutes.
In the video which went viral on social media, the owner of the hospital is also heard saying that bodies of some patients started turning blue after the oxygen supply was cut off.
Tagging media reports on the incident, Gandhi tweeted, “Amidst severe shortage of oxygen, the Uttar Pradesh government kept on saying ”there is no shortage”. People across the state struggled and lost their lives. The administration in Agra is also saying ”there was no shortage of oxygen”.”
