Centre doesn’t generate data: BJP on ‘zero’ oxygen deaths

New Delhi, July 21 (ANI): BJP spokesperson Sambit Patra on July 21 reiterated Central Government’s stand on zero deaths due to oxygen shortage during second wave of COVID-19. He said that the Central Government doesn’t generate the data; it only collects the data sent by states and Union Territories. “There are 3 things one must pay attention to in the reply given by the Govt. Centre says that Health is a State/UT subject. It says that it just collects the data sent by States/UTs, it doesn't generate data”. He also added, “Centre says that as no State/UT sent any data regarding deaths specifically due to shortage of oxygen, since none of them said that a death occurred in their State/UT due to shortage of oxygen, there is no data for that. Did the Centre generate this data? No,” Patra added.
