Rajasthan Coronavirus News: 16,815 new cases of Korana virus infection were reported in Rajasthan on Wednesday, while 155 more patients died due to infection.
Jaipur. BJP MP Rajyavardhan Singh Rathore targeted the Gehlot government of Rajasthan over the corona virus situation and asked why despite the increase in the state’s budget, there is such a shortage of oxygen plants and ICU beds in the state. He said, ‘In 2019-20, the Rajasthan government had 67 thousand 268 crore rupees to spend and in 2020-21 the Rajasthan government had 90 thousand 963 crore rupees to spend. Between the first corona wave and the second corona wave, the total money with the Rajasthan government is 1 lakh 58 thousand 231 crore. The question is simple enough that the Rajasthan government spent what percentage of this 1 lakh 58 thousand crore 231 crore rupees within the setting up of an oxygen plant, preparing ICU beds.
During this, the BJP MP from Jaipur Rural also referred to a letter from a senior health officer of the Rajasthan government. He said, ‘I have received a letter from a senior health officer of the Government of Rajasthan and I have written in my letter that the number of patients infected with the corona virus is increasing unexpectedly. And the lack of medical equipment at district level for its diagnosis is being felt. And they have given a list of 111 items, which can come for about 3 crore 66 lakh rupees. This is the letter of May 4 and on May 6, I gave one crore rupees from my MP fund.
