Mumbai: Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) chief Mayawati on Monday said that the government of Delhi should intervene in the government’s decision to not allow treatment of people from outside the city in the hospitals in the national capital, except those run by the Union government.
“Delhi is the capital of the country. People from all over the country come here for their important work. In such a situation, if a person suddenly falls ill, it is very unfortunate that the Delhi government will not allow him to get treatment. In his hospitals, saying that he is not from the city. Center should intervene in this matter,” Mayawati tweeted.
“Under Unlock-1, people should strictly follow the government rules to go to whichever places and markets that are being opened from today. If it is very important, then only people should go there, otherwise, they should avoid it. This is the advice of BSP in the public interest,” the former Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister tweeted.
2. दिल्ली देश की राजधानी है। यहाँ पूरे देश से लोग अपने जरूरी कार्यों से आते रहते हैं। ऐसे में यदि कोई व्यक्ति अचानक बीमार पड़ जाता है तो उसको यह कहकर कि वह दिल्ली का नहीं है इसलिए दिल्ली सरकार उसका इलाज नहीं होने देगी, यह अति-दुर्भाग्यपूर्ण। केन्द्र को इसमें जरूर दखल देना चाहिये।

Earlier on Sunday, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal announced that the hospitals in Delhi, which are being run by the Center, will be available only to the people of the national capital in view of the increasing COVID-19 cases here.
He said that private hospitals in the national capital will only treat patients except for those hospitals in the national capital which are not available anywhere in the country.
