New Delhi: After reports surfaced that Maharashtra Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray’s call was not responded by Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Union Minister Piyush Goyal has hit at the Shiv Sena government, calling it ‘low-level politics’. Earlier today, it was reported that Maharashtra CM dialed PM’s office and his call was answered by a dignitary who said the PM can’t be accessed at the moment as he is currently campaigning in Bengal. The chief minister reportedly wanted to talk about availability of oxygen and review other covid related details of Maharashtra with the Prime Minister.
Union Minister Piyush Goyal in reply to Maharashtra government’s allegation said that he’s saddened by the Chief Ministers gimmick on oxygen, adding that Maharashtra has been allotted with the highest quantity of oxygen.
“Saddened to see @OfficeOfUT’s gimmicks on oxygen. GoI, with all stakeholders, is ensuring maximum oxygen production in India. We are currently producing 110% of Oxygen generating capacity and diverting all available Oxygen from industrial use to medical use,” the Union Minister said.
Maharashtra has so far received the highest quantity of Oxygen in India.
Centre is in daily touch with State Governments to assess their needs & help them in best possible manner,” he said in another tweet.
“Just yesterday, PM in his review told that centre & states should work with synergy in this crisis.With this background, shocked and saddened to see petty politics being played by @OfficeOfUT. He needs to stop his daily dose of shameless politics and take responsibility,” Mr Goyal added.
Addint that the Maharashtra is suffering from an inept & corrupt government & the Centre is doing its best for the people, he said that the people of Maharashtra are following ‘Majha Kutumb, Majhi Javabadari’ dutifully. It is time the CM also follows his duties in the spirit of ‘Majha Rajya, Majhi Javabadari’
The Prime Minister is currently campaigning in Bengal. He has also addressed multiple rallies across Assam, Tamil Nadu and other poll-bound states in past few weeks
