As more cases of vector-borne diseases were reported in the national capital, Delhi Health Minister Satyendra Jain on Tuesday held the Lt. Governor and the BJP-controlled civic bodies responsible for the menace.

Here are his quotes from the press conference

 

#There is no outbreak (of chikungunya). It has been created by you (media) by spreading panic.

#Prove it medically(death due to chikungunya), medically chikungunya can never be the cause of anyone’s death

#There has never been any death due to chikungunya in the World. This is media created panic. Please don’t spread panic

#LG is issuing illegal orders, we can’t even transfer a peon. LG is avenging people of Delhi because BJP only won three seats in Delhi. He is the only Congress appointed LG who has been retained by BJP because he is harming Delhi.

#LG has paralysed the entire governance in Delhi as all the officers are busy in collecting and sending files to him and thus the work has stopped.

#We had made proper arrangements for dengue and chikungunya. Let me tell you that the hospitals under the Delhi Government, Centre and the MCD are different. For each and every case why is the Delhi government being blamed. Ask the Lt Governor. He himself went to the US

#Delhi kiskay bharosay? Modi Bharosay aur LG bharosay
