New Delhi: Senior Congress leader P Chidambaram on Wednesday said he was appalled by the health minister’s statement that there is no shortage of oxygen or vaccines in the country and asked people to “revolt” against a government that is “assuming them to be fools”.

“I am appalled by the statement of the Union Health Minister that there is no shortage of oxygen or vaccines or Remedesivir.

“I am also appalled by the statement of the UP Chief Minister that there is no shortage of vaccines in UP,” he said on Twitter.

He asked whether all the television channels were telecasting fake visuals and all the newspaper stories incorrect.

“Are all the doctors lying? Are all the family members making false statements? Are all the visuals and photographs fake?

“People must revolt against a government that is assuming all the people of India are fools,” he said in a series of tweets.

Some media reports quoted Health Minister Harsh Vardhan as saying that there is no shortage of oxygen or vaccines in the country.

Why news media is in crisis & How you can fix it

India needs free, fair, non-hyphenated and questioning journalism even more as it faces multiple crises.

But the news media is in a crisis of its own. There have been brutal layoffs and pay-cuts. The best of journalism is shrinking, yielding to crude prime-time spectacle.

ThePrint has the finest young reporters, columnists and editors working for it. Sustaining journalism of this quality needs smart and thinking people like you to pay for it. Whether you live in India or overseas, you can do it here.

  1. Did we expected corona in 2014.Never. Did we expect a govt to be lacking vision of such magnitude, never. God save us.

  2. Oh, the idiots were calling the only successful transfer of phone technology to the masses in India as corruption. No one is guilty to date of that “crime”. This Kumbh crowd will sink the whole country at this rate.

  3. Experts with sound knowledge of facilitating the 2G and coal projects must be our role models for oxygen, vaccines projects also.
