Delhi Cong seeks suggestions ahead of all party meet - New Delhi News

Shah has called an all-party meeting on Monday to evaluate the pandemic situation in Delhi.

Speaking to the media, Delhi Congress chief Chaudhary Anil Kumar said, "I have got the request to attend all party meetings with Shah. We have been demanding an all party meeting for a long time but thankfully they woke up now."

He said, the Congress has been sharing the suggestions with the Union government.

"We have shared our suggestions even with Delhi Lt Governor Anil Baijal during the all party meeting on Sunday. And one of our suggestions to display the availability of beds in hospitals on big LED screens has been heeded by the LG," he said.

Targeting Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, Kumar said, "If the Home Minister is taking steps and the LG is also working, then why didn't Kejriwal take any step till date. It raises a big question."

The Congress leader also urged the people to share their suggestions with him on social media platforms. "I shall give the suggestions received from the people to the Home Minister," he added.

His remarks came after Kejriwal along with his deputy Sisodia and Delhi Health Minister Satyendar Jain attended the meeting with Shah and Union Heath Minister Dr Harsh Vardhan to discuss the Covid-19 situation.

Earlier in the day, Kumar questioned the absence of Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, his deputy Manish Sisodia from the all party meeting called by Baijal.

Slamming the AAP government, Kumar said, "Even today's meeting with Shah, a question arises, where were the CM and the Deputy CM during the all party meeting with the Lt Governor. They should have attended the meeting."

"They should have sat in the meeting and discussed the ways to control the situation," he said.

He also accused the AAP of doing politics over the issue and said, "once again this has been proved that they don't want to attend the meeting with the Lt Governor. They want to have meeting with the Home Minister," he said.

The Covid-19 cases in Delhi have seen a spike in last few days. The total number of Covid-19 cases in the national capital stands at 38,958 with 1,271 fatalities.
