Former Congress chief Rahul Gandhi yet again launched a scathing attack on the Central government over the deaths due to shortage of oxygen during the second wave of COVID-19, saying ‘sab yaad rakha jayega’ (everything will be remembered).
"Everything will be remembered," the Congress MP from Kerala`s Wayanad said in a short tweet in Hindi on Thursday.
The Congress party leader tweeted with the hashtag #OxygenShortage and attached a video showing people searching for oxygen cylinders and carrying their loved ones for the oxygen during the second wave of the pandemic.
It may be noted that the Narendra Modi dispensation has faced intense criticism after it informed the Rajya Sabha that no deaths were reported due to lack of oxygen during the second wave of coronavirus.
Meanwhile, Congress Rajya Sabha MP KC Venugopal had on Thursday moved a privilege motion against Minister of State for Health Bharti Pravin Pawar who informed the Rajya Sabha two days ago that no one died due to a shortage of oxygen during the second wave of the COVID pandemic.
Reacting to it, Pawar in a written reply, had said, "Detailed guidelines for reporting of deaths have been issued by the Union Health Ministry to all states and UTs. However, no deaths due to lack of oxygen have been specifically reported by states and UTs."
