AAP MLA Shoaib Iqbal demanded the Presidential Rule in Delhi because of the ongoing Covid-19 crisis in the capital. Due to the degrading Covid-19 situation in the capital, Iqbal has appealed to the Delhi High Court to impose the President’s Rule in Delhi with immediate effect.
“The situation in Delhi makes me cry. It pains my heart to look at such a condition. There’s no oxygen or medicine available. My friend is suffering right now. He doesn’t have any oxygen supply or any ventilator for support. I don’t know from where to buy him remdesivir medicine..”
“Today, I’m not proud, but embarrassed of being an MLA as I’m not able to help anyone in such a distressful situation,” Shoaib Iqbal
Due to the rising number of Covid-19 cases, several hospitals across the capital are scrambling for oxygen supply, from eight straight days Delhi has recorded over more than 300 deaths due to Covid-19.
Thursday, Delhi recorded 395 deaths due to coronavirus, the highest since the pandemic began a year ago.
