AAP’s BJP criticism in Surat
In April as Surat registered a surge in COVID cases and fatalities, and patients struggled to get hospital beds and oxygen, the AAP had put up posters in the city announcing that the health minister is missing.
The posters were aimed at the Minister of State (MoS) for Health Kishor Kanani who is also an MLA from the district.
AAP became the major opposition in the Surat Municipal Corporation (SMC) after it dislodged Congress to emerge as the single largest opposition party in the SMC.
The AAP had also made several representations to the MoS Health about the deteriorating COVID situation in Surat including shortage of Remdesivir injections. But the party alleged that Kishor Kanani had not done anything to address the situation.
Later it put up posters in various parts of the city stating that the health minister is missing. The posters read, “The health minister is missing…if someone finds him please send him to Surat Civil Hospital..”
