Delhi Lt Governor Calls All-Party Meeting At 3 PM On Coronavirus Crisis

The meeting will be held at 3 pm, said Lieutenant Governor Anil Baijal's office.

New Delhi:

A day after overruling two key decisions of the Arvind Kejriwal government, Delhi Lieutenant Governor Anil Baijal has called an "all-party meeting" to discuss the coronavirus situation in the capital.

The meeting will be held at 3 pm, said the Lieutenant Governor's office. Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, who is unwell and will take a coronavirus test today, is unlikely to attend the meeting.

Yesterday, Mr Baijal cancelled the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) government's decision to reserve hospitals except those run by the centre for residents of Delhi. He also reversed a decision to test only those showing symptoms of COVID-19 and said asymptomatic cases and high-risk contacts of a virus patient will also be tested.
