Bengaluru: BJP MP and former cricketer Gautam Gambhir has lambasted Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal for writing to the centre for more masks and PPEs.
It is reported that two weeks ago, Gambhir had promised to donate Rs 50 lakh for the same and the BJP MP has alleged that Kejriwal has not returned to him on the issue.
Gambhir, in this tweet, said, "If millions of PPE promotions were put on TV from morning to evening, then the public would benefit. 2 weeks ago I had pledged 50 lakh for PPE Kits and Masks, till date no feedback. Now asking from the centre @ArvindKejriwal The two weapons, crocodile tears and victim card.
सुबह से शाम तक TV पे प्रचार के करोड़ों अगर PPE Kits पे लगाते तो जनता का कुछ भला हो जाता— Gautam Gambhir (@GautamGambhir) April 4, 2020
2 हफ़्ते पहले मैंने PPE Kits और Masks के लिए 50 लाख pledge किये थे, आज तक कोई feedback नहीं. अब centre से मांग रहे हैं @ArvindKejriwal के दो हथियार, घड़ियाली आंसू और victimcard pic.twitter.com/Cm11UcyBT5
It might be recalled that while addressing a press conference on Saturday, Kejriwal had accused the Centre of not providing them with even a single PPE kit despite having written to them asking for the same. He had said, "We are facing a shortage of PPE kits. We have written to the Centre to supply the kits, essential for our doctors and nurses. But we haven't received even one PPE kit from theUnion government so far. There are 445 positive cases for COVID-19 in the national capital so far.
