The Deputy Chief Minister said that if the cases keep doubling every 12-13 days in the coming days, there will be a shortage of beds, and Delhiites will bear the brunt.
"This is the reason the Delhi
cabinet had decided to reserve the beds only for the city residents but it was overturned by the L-G. Now, who will take the responsibility if the cases keep on increasing and the beds are full?" he asked.
Sisodia and State Health Minister Satyendar Jain spoke to the media after meeting Lt Governor Anil Baijal's residence ahead of an all-party meeting at 3 p.m.on the issue.
The Lt Governor, who is also the Chairman of Delhi Disaster Management Authority, had in his order on Monday said that "treatment should not be denied to any patient on grounds of being a non-resident".
"The Delhi High Court in a writ petition after examining constitutional provisions in details, especially Article 14 and 21, has held that denying patients medical treatment on the ground of not being resident of NCT of Delhi is impermissible," the order stated.
Sisodia also added that according to central government officials, there has been no instance of community transmission of the virus in Delhi,
