In an apparent reference to the observation by the court, Priyanka Gandhi said the high court has shown the mirror to the government.
“The UP government has continuously denied the lack of oxygen. It has been threatening those flagging the lack of oxygen,” the Congress general secretary said in a Facebook post in Hindi.
“While the truth is that continuously there have been deaths due to lack of oxygen and its accountability should be fixed,” she said.
The observation by the court came over some news items doing the rounds on social media regarding the death of COVID-19 patients due to lack of oxygen in Lucknow and Meerut districts. The court also ordered a probe into the incidents.
