Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) Punjab Youth Wing president and MLA Gurmeet Singh Meet Hayer said the Union Government had “failed” to crackdown on those hoarding and over-pricing essential Covid-10 medicines like Remdesivir and oxygen cylinders.
Meet Hayer said when doctors and scientists had warned in advance about the re-emergence of the pandemic in the country, the Central government did not provide any necessary medical services and made any adequate arrangements to save the lives of the people. He said now hoarders were looting people on essential Covid medicines and oxygen by charging unreasonably and indulging in black-marketing.
“Modi has left the states alone to fight Covid and is making false claims in the name of vaccines. The Centre is discriminating in providing vaccines and other essentials to states and are further boosting the business of some of its crony pharmacy companies by working with them in collusion,” he said.
