New Delhi : Delhi's ruling Aam Aadmi Party on Monday said that the health infrastructure of Gujarat has completely collapsed and accused the state's ruling BJP of indulging in corruption.
AAP's Rajya Sabha member Sanjay Singh said the Gujarat High Court's observations have revealed the "fraud" behind BJP's Gujarat Model.
He said that Gujarat HC has observed that the condition of the Ahmedabad Civil hospital is "pathetic" and the hospital is "as good as a dungeon, maybe even worse".
"Heath infrastructure of Gujarat completely collapsed. In Gujarat, the N-95 masks which cost around Rs 49 are being sold at Rs 65. This means that corruption is happening in Gujarat in the health sector. The Gujarat government which is led by the BJP has also failed the poor migrant labourers," he claimed.
Noting the BJP is ruling Gujarat for the last 25 years, he said: "It has always talked about the Gujarat model of development both across the globe and India. Till date, 865 people have died in Gujarat due to coronavirus and the number of deaths in Gujarat is the highest among all the states of India."
Singh said "it is crystal clear that the health infrastructure of Gujarat has completely failed. These are not my personal observations, these are the observations made by the Gujarat High Court."
He said that now it is high time for the BJP to come in front of the people and say why they have failed to better health infrastructure in Gujarat.
"Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Home Minister Amit Shah are from Gujarat. The Central government earlier sent a team of experts to Gujarat to look into the health infrastructure of the state but until today has not revealed the findings of the team. I think that this is high time the BJP should come clean about the real situation of Gujarat," said Singh.
