CPI MP moves privilege motion notice in Rajya Sabha against Centre's reply on COVID deaths
Communist Party of India (CPI) MP Binoy Viswam on Thursday has moved privilege motion notice against an answer in the Rajya Sabha by Minister of State Bharati Pravin Pawar that no one has died because of the non-availability of oxygen.

"The Minister of State in the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare, Dr Bharati Pravin Pawar, in reply to unstarred question 243 on July 20, 2021 has stated that there were no deaths due to oxygen shortage reported by States during the second wave of COVID-19. Beyond being absolutely disrespectful to the hundreds who suffered this avoidable demise, the Government has tried to mislead the Parliament with its response and thereby broken parliamentary privilege," wrote Mr Viswam to Rajya Sabha Secretary General.

The CPI leader said that thousands of people died due to the lack of oxygen during the months of April and May 2021 across the country. The innumerable reports in the media and numerous citizen''s personal experience during those fateful months are testament to this fact.
