Delhi hospitals row: Kejriwal says LG Baijal’s orders will be followed

New Delhi (NVI): Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal today said that Lieutenant Governor Anil Baijal’s order that overruled his government’s decision to reserve hospitals exclusively for Delhi residents for Covid-19 treatment will be followed.

“This is not the time for politics. This is not the time for disagreements,” Kejriwal said in his video address today while asserting that it is a time to put up a joint front against corona. The Delhi CM had gone into self-isolation suspecting a Covid-19 infection after bouts of fever and painful throat on Sunday.

LG Baijal, who represents the Centre, had on Monday cancelled the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) government’s decision to reserve hospitals except those run by the centre for residents of Delhi.

“We will try our best to make arrangements to provide treatment to all. We all have to fight Covid-19 together,” said Kejriwal in his address today.

The Chief Minister had undergone a Covid test yesterday, the results for which came negative. He was also not able to attend a special all-party meeting called by the LG to discuss the pandemic situation in the national capital.

Meanwhile, coronavirus cases in the national capital have crossed the 31,000 mark with 1,366 fresh cases, while the death toll mounted to 905.
