AAP misleading people over Fateh kits: Punjab minister


DW BUREAU / chandigarh The Health & Family Welfare Minister Mr. Balbir Singh Sidhu on Friday lambasted the Aam Admi Party's leaders for misleading and playing vested interests politics on Corona Fateh Kits as AAP's Delhi Government purchased Pulse Oximeter at exorbitant prices on May 5, 2021 Lashing out at AAP leaders, Mr. Sidhu said that before raising queries at Captain Amarinder Singh led Punjab Government, they have to conduct self analysis, what they did in national Capital Delhi where thousands of people died on roads in lack of treatment and screaming for oxygen & beds availability in hospitals. Exposing the undue rates of Pulse Oximeters purchased by AAP Party, Mr. Sidhu said that on May 5, 2021, they issued the purchase order to M/s. V&M Galaxy to supply 20,000 supply Oximeter at Rs. 1300 each, M/s Divesh Chaudhary for 2000 at rate of Rs. 1290 each, M/s Edif Medical Systems for 5,000 at Rs. 1250 each, M/s Abhilasha Commercial Pvt. Ltd for 13000 Oxymeters at a rate of Rs. of 1300. He said that how could Delhi Government purchase same Oxymeter from various firms at different prices, whereas at present Punjab Government has been providing the Corona Fateh Kits to patients at very low price of Rs. 883 which included 19 items such as Digital Thermometer, Steamer, Pulse Oximeter, Hand Sanitizer (500 ML), Facemask Three Ply and all essential medicines. In view of rising cases during the second wave, the Punjab Government purchased Corona Fateh Kits at the maximum rate of Rs. 1195 when there was scarcity world-wide, he clarified adding that all purchasing were made in transparent and impartial manner to fulfill the rising demands. He said that Punjab is the single State among all where these treatment kits have been provided to the Covid Patients. He added that bulk purchase of any item is always based on wholesale prices but delhi govt had looted public exchequer by taking the adverse and suspicious route to give undue favour to these firms with the connivance of big suppliers. Terming the Delhi's so-called World Class Model of Health Infrastructure of Aam Admi Party as a castle built in the air, Mr. Sidhu, responding to the allegations of AAP Leaders, said that don't suggest us to adopt the Delhi Model which was built up purely on social media not on ground. He said that Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal had deliberately imposed the lock down as he was well aware, he was not in the capacity to provide the health facilities and food to the working forces.
