CPI Deplores Delhi Govt’s Reserving Hospitals for Delhiites

The National Secretariat of the Communist Party of India issued the following statement today (on June 8, 2020) deploring the Delhi government’s move reserving Delhi hospitals for Delhiites:

The National Secretariat of the Communist Party of India deplores the Delhi chief minister’s announcement reserving Delhi government hospitals for only Delhiites. This is unconstitutional and goes against the Oath of Office he had undertaken while assuming charge of the UT as the Chief Minister.

Moreover, he himself has repeatedly asserted that Delhi being the national capital belongs to all Indians. Tit for tat, the Party feels, may not always bring the desired result. In the days of our fight against COVID-19, let us also fight and expose unitedly the petty and communal politics of BJP-RSS.

The Party appeals to the Chief Minister to immediately withdraw the partisan and unconstitutional order.
