AAP, Delhi BJP chief in Twitter spat as 74 COVID deaths in 24 hrs

This Twitter spat comes in the backdrop of 74 deaths due to COVID-19 in the national capital in the last 24 hours.

"AAP's is a government of advertising and Twitter trends. Their work is gauged from the fact that 65 per cent of corona beds are empty in Delhi government hospitals, while only 5 per cent in Delhi hospitals of the central government. It says that the public neither trusts Kejriwal nor the health system," tweeted Gupta.

He further alleged that the Mohalla clinics, in which the Delhi Chief Minister had allegedly spent crores, stand closed. He also called Kejriwal and his Mohalla clinics to be "missing". Taking serious potshots at the AAP government over its handling of the pandemic that forced the Union Home Minister to step in, in the first place, Gupta claimed, "In the all-party meeting today, Sanjay Singh said that in 3 months, the Kejriwal government could not even arrange 15,000 beds for corona. But after the intervention of Modi and Amit Shah, the number of beds in Delhi will cross 30,000, by 30 June."

This Twitter spat took place after AAP tweeted a video from its official Twitter handle saying: "Today, Home Minister Amit Shah along with the Chief Secretary of the Government of Delhi visited the LNJP Hospital of the Delhi Government. What did Amit Shah say, while praising Kejriwal government hospitals? Listen to the doctors of LNJP yourself."

Shah visited the Delhi hospital and reviewed the situation there after complaints poured in about the ground situation. Earlier the Supreme Court described Delhi's handling of the pandemic as "horrendous, horrific and pathetic".
