Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal has said will follow L-G’s orders there is no time for arguments in the coronavirus crisis and that Delhi govt will abide by the decision taken by L-G Anil Baijal of overruling his govt’s order on reserving Delhi hospitals.

Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal has said L-G Anil Baijal’s orders of reversing the government decision on making Delhi hospitals available only for residents will be implemented as this is not the “time for disagreements or arguments”.

In a video address, Kejriwal told the media, “LG’s directives will be implemented in letter and spirit, this is not the time for disagreements or arguments.

Delhi government will follow the decision taken by the Centre and implement the orders of the Lieutenant General.”

However, he also added that if people from other states are also given treatment at Delhi hospitals, the city will need far more beds for coronavirus patients as cases will rise in Delhi in July.

“If people from other states start coming to Delhi for treatment, we will need 1.5 lakh beds by July 31,” said Kejriwal.

The Delhi government had earlier said it will need 80,000 beds by end of July.

“For everyone’s safety, promoting social distancing and usage of masks has to be a people’s movement just like the odd-even scheme,” said Arvind Kejriwal.

Kejriwal, who himself underwent the coronavirus test on Tuesday and tested negative, said Delhi is facing a huge crisis of the coronavirus spread in the coming days.

“Data shows COVID-19 cases will significantly increase in Delhi in coming days; we have a big challenge ahead. In Delhi, we will need 80,000 beds by July 31 as coronavirus cases is expected to touch 5.51 lakh,” said Kejriwal.

On Sunday, Kejriwal had announced the hospitals run by the Delhi government and also private facilities will only treat Delhiites during the coronavirus crisis.

However, the decision was overruled by L-G Anil Baijal, who said all Indians are equal and must get same treatment.

Reacting to the decision, Kejriwal had said on Monday Lt Governor Anil Baijal’s order overruling AAP government’s decision has created a major problem and challenge for the residents of Delhi.
