While the national capital is grappling with the presence of deadly diseases such as dengue and chikungunya, what seems to be missing is the important ministers of Delhi. According to a report by India Today, Satyendar Jain, Gopal Rai, Imran Husain, Manish Sisodia and Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal are not in town as major health crisis spreads across Delhi.

Criticizing Kejriwal-led government, Congress leader Shiela Dikshit in a conversation with ANI, said, “We saw no fumigation this time in the city. If the government doesn’t fulfil responsibility how will it work? It is government’s responsibility to take preemptive steps when this season arrives before people get sick.”

Meanwhile, BJP spokesperson Sambit Patra also slammed the Delhi government for their inability to cope with these diseases.

“The capital of the country is reeling under vector-borne diseases, and when Kejriwal is asked questions, he takes to Twitter saying that he should not be questioned. Kejriwal needs to resign. You cannot run away and shun your duty. When people question you, you need to mind your language. You are answerable. Stop calling people who question you dalals.”

On the other hand, Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia in an attempt to defend his government, tweeted in Hindi, that since it has been established the Lieutenant Governor holds the reins of the national capital, then why question us? We have just been following his orders and have been working hard. Rest, why don’t you question LG Najeeb Jung on this?

A 65-year-old man yesterday died of chikungunya at a hospital in Delhi, in what could be the first fatality from this vector-borne disease in the national capital. Chikungunya cases in the national capital have sharply risen to over 1,000 this season, marking a jump of nearly 90 per cent from its count last week.
