Congress knocks Mandaviya for ‘strolling in with photographer’ while checking out Manmohan at AIIMS
NEW DELHI: The Congress on Friday knocked Union Health Minister Mansukh Mandaviya for apparently getting a photographer while visiting previous prime minister Manmohan Singh at the All India Institute of Medical Sciences, saying that for the BJP people whatever has to do with a “media event”.
The celebration also demanded that the health minister apologise.
The Congress’ attack came after former prime minister Manmohan Singh’s daughter, Daman Singh, implicated the minister of getting a professional photographer versus the dreams of the family.
Daman Singh informed ThePrint that her mother was mad due to the fact that a photographer had gotten in the space in addition to the minister. However when she firmly insisted that the professional photographer leave the room, “she was completely neglected”.
“She was really upset. My parents are attempting to cope in a difficult circumstance. They are senior individuals. Not animals in a zoo,” Daman Singh stated.
Congress’ chief representative Randeep Surjewala said for the BJP individuals whatever is a “image op”.
“Whatever is a ‘Media event’ for BJP. Embarassment on health minister, who made a check out to fulfill previous PM in AIIMS, an unsightly ‘PR Stunt’,” he said in a tweet.
“This is. Negation of every ethical norm, Breach of ex-PM’s privacy, insult of established custom, reflects absence of basic decency. Apologise now!” Surjewala tweeted.
Rajya Sabha MP and senior Congress leader Digvijaya Singh said, “Media event is the trademark of the Modi federal government”.
Congress leader Manickam Tagore said the minister’s actions were a “severe breach of personal privacy” and asked why Mandviya strolled in with electronic cameras.
“When previous PM Vajpayee remained in hospital whether we got pictures from AIIMS? It’s crime @crpfindia must address? AIIMS must respond to?” Tagore tweeted.
Tagore stated he will compose to President Ram Nath Kovind to ask Prime Minister Narendra Modi and his ministers to stop these “petty things”.
Another senior Congress leader Abhishek Singhvi stated, “I understand you all are concerned about the health of previous PM Manmohan Singh but kindly do stop sharing pictures of him from his hospital bed. It’s invasion of his and his family’s personal privacy and bad conduct in any way.”
Congress leader Salman Anees Soz said that when the Union Health Minister visited Manmohan Singh at AIIMS, his professional photographer went within over the objections of the household.
“How distasteful is this propaganda program?” he said.
Daman Singh stated her parents had actually expressly firmly insisted that visitors be restricted due to the fact that her daddy is struggling with dengue and his resistance is low, and there is the threat of infection.
The former prime minister had contracted COVID-19 in April, at the height of the 2nd wave in Delhi, regardless of two dosages of the vaccine.
“It was great of the health minister to go to and express his concern,” Daman Singh stated, including, “However, my parents remained in no state to be photographed at the time.”
Manmohan Singh was admitted to the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) here on Wednesday evening after he grumbled of weakness following fever.
The 89-year-old former prime minister has actually been confessed to a private ward in the cardio-neuro centre of the health center and is under the care of a group of cardiologists led by Dr Nitish Naik.
