The Delhi High Court on Monday came down heavily on politicians distributing medicines and other equipment to people during the Covid-19 pandemic, telling them to surrender the same to the Director General of Health Services (DGHS).
The Bench of Justice Vipin Sanghi and Justice Jasmeet Singh today said, “If the politicians have intentions of doing some public good, then they should be given the medicines to hospitals. This is not the right way.”
The Court was hearing the issue of political leaders providing medicines, oxygen and other equipment during the Novel Coronavirus pandemic.
Taking exception to BJP East Delhi MP Gautam Gambhir, who organised a camp and distributed Fabiflu medicines in the capital, the Court said, “This is not the right way. They should hand over the medicines to the Director General of Health Services (DGHS).”
Advocate Sanjay Lao represented petitioner Dr Deepak Singh, while Advocate Virag Gupta represented the Delhi Police.
