Mangaluru: Exulting on oxygen ship - Khader lampoons ‘Atmanirbhar’ BJP leaders


Daijiworld Media Network - Mangaluru (SP)

Mangaluru, May 6: Former minister U T Khader, in a wry comment, said he is confused as to whether he should clap for the ‘Atmanirbhar’ (self-reliance) of the BJP leaders or light a lamp, at the sight of the BJP leaders getting elated after getting on the ship carrying oxygen that came from Bahrain.

In a tweet made from his official Twitter handle, Khader commented that Karnataka does not have the right to use the oxygen generated within the state. He mocked at the BJP leaders for having gone up the oxygen ship from Bahrain and exulting, as the talk of self-reliance has been forgotten. "I damn your incapability", he told them.

Taking into consideration the emergent need for oxygen in India, through the 'Samudra Setu' operation of the central government, 40 metric tonnes of oxygen was transported by INS Talwar ship of the Indian Navy from Bahrain. On the ship's arrival at New Mangalore port on Wednesday, the BJP leaders had visited the port and extended a warm welcome to the ship.

    Dont know why Oppn has decided to use this guman tragedy called Covid to snatch PM chair for its Rajkumar. Many dont knw after tender for 162 PSA oxygen units were called in October by CMSS & funds transferred from PM Cares, 33 are operationalized given fact that it requires 4-5 months to install PSA/VSA plant. This is a calamity brought upon mankind by Mother for oyr greed. Today we are gasping for the same air that we pollute everyday. Well I have vowed to plant 500 trees post August if I am still there. Will U too?

    Firstly Hegde Sir, great initiative to plant trees. If every Indian does plant even one sapling and look after it, it will change our environment considerably. Second, the article is about BJP office bearers rushing to Panambur to stand on/next to a ship carrying oxygen which was gifted to India by Baharain and transported by the Indian Navy. It was destined for Maharastra. So what were these fools doing in Panambur, when Dakhina Kannada is reeling with shotages of oxygen, medicines and vaccines??? Their time could be better utilized helping their district insted of pleasing their political bosses with this type of publicity stunts.

    I don't know whether to laugh on this comment from UTK. His father was a doctor and he himself was health minister. The pandemic is raising unprecedented challenge on our health infrastructure. I don't think any country on the globe was prepared for this. Mangalore being am important healthcare provider with lot of private players also involved are now saying that ICU beds are not available. At any point, until April mid, most of the ICU beds were vacant in Mangalore. I know because, I called some of these hospitals to get a bed when there was and is still today, shortage in Bangalore. With this context, UTK's comments is 100% politics and rubbing salt on those who are desperately looking for beds for their loved ones.

It should have been berthed at naval base near Karwar so that shipment could have been cleared without hurdles. Looks like they had personally gone to Bahrain to bring oxygen.

    More than two years was insufficient for Feku Raj even to build a single COVID care hospital, provide masks, medicinese, Oxygen and Vaccinations. He even went to claim that India was the only country to conquer COVID !!! He was even claiming that India did better than Western Europe when thousands were dying there on a daily basis!!! He had never learnt, nor adopted any of the emergency practices the rest of the world adopted so quickly to fight this pandemic. He didn't even heed the advice of top health experts of India to ban Kumbh Mela, BJP election rallies throughout India. Today, tiny Nepal is suffering because of his folly!!! He is not even transparent about the PM Cares Fund, and shamelessly taking credit for the generosity of foreign donors some of who are Muslims, whom he hated the most!!! Is it wrong if we demand the trial of such an arrogant leader who is responsible for the death of so many, while the economy is going down the drain?? Aren't public figures to be held accountable for ruining our country?? Jai Hind!!!

The problem here is not importing oxygen, the problem here is no measures wer taken to tackle the situation by our govt. So busy with false propaganda that can't handle criticism.

    The BJP government has failed miserably. Thank God this oxygen from Bahrain atleast was unloaded. I saw a ground report from a prominent journalist who claims that all the aid of ventilators, oxygen concentrators, vials etc (aid received from US, UK, France, Romania, Singapore, Thailand, UAE) are all still lying in the Delhi Airport due to red tape. This shows the seriousness of the government and it's hollow claims. They are hunting in the dark. They themselves don't know what to do.

How could he land in Bangla half a dozen times though the nation was on the threshold of Covid-second wave ?? Is his filled with air part is an empty nation and the fuller part is his (BJP's) greed for winning more states ? You aren't disgusted at his neglect of responsibilities as a PM but certainly are with opposition leaders no less than at par with your hypocrite leader.
