At a time when patients are suffering due to the lack of oxygen supply, Congress has supposedly been supplying unsolicited oxygen cylinders to embassies. The issue came to light when a tweet by the New Zealand embassy thanked Congress ‘youth leader’ Srinivas for ‘arranging’ oxygen cylinder. It is important to highlight here that the embassy should have actually approached the Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) as per protocol.
Why it is surprising that the embassy would not deem it fit to approach the Bharatiya government first, that they put out a tweet saying “we tried arranging for oxygen cylinders from all sources but our tweet has been misunderstood. We express regret for it”. Why did the embassy issue an apology and why was the tweet deleted?
An even more intriguing thing is that a similar request had been made from the Philippines Embassy. Not surprisingly, top Congress leaders and media people like Ajit Anjum were seen congratulating Srinivas for ‘arranging’ oxygen cylinders for the Philippines Embassy. The lies of Congress were caught when External Affairs Minister (EAM) Dr. S Jaishankar replied to Congress leader Jairam Ramesh saying that the embassy was not in need of any oxygen cylinder.
Jairamji, MEA never sleeps; our people know across the world. MEA also never fakes; we know who does.

Dr. Jaishankar also accused Congress of seeking cheap publicity by supplying unsolicited oxygen cylinders at a time when there were people desperately in need of the same. This raises certain important questions about the kind of ‘help’ being rendered by Congress. It must also be noted that the same journalists who keep raising questions about the shortage of oxygen cylinders waste no time in praising Congress for their efforts to supply the same.
Twitter users were quick to react to the new drama being enacted by Congress. Several users condemned the act while pointing out that on the one hand Delhi was suffering from a shortage of oxygen supply and on the other, Congress was trying to gain publicity by supplying unsolicited cylinders. They even raised doubts as to whether Congress was black-marketing oxygen cylinders. Some even wanted to know if Congress leaders have been directed by the high command to do so.
This also raises questions regarding the role of journalists like Ajit Anjum and Abhisar Sharma among others in helping Congress in their propaganda. It is crystal clear that Congress is not just resorting to black marketing but also defaming Bharat out of their hatred for PM Modi. We would also like to draw the attention of the readers towards the fact that medicines and injections that are in short supply are readily made available by Congress at the request of propaganda leftist journalists such as Vinod Kapri, Abhisar Sharma, Sakshi Joshi, and others of their ilk.
This raises suspicions about Congress office-bearers hoarding important medical supplies at a time when the country is faced with a heavy shortage of these life-saving materials. Is Congress creating artificial scarcity of oxygen cylinders? How come Congress leaders and even Gurudwaras are able to arrange for oxygen cylinders after a mere tweet while hospitals with Covid cases are falling short of the same? Is Congress purposely hoarding cylinders for its anti-Modi agenda?
Questions must be asked of the New Zealand embassy as well. Why did they approach Congress leader Srinivas who is a resident of Bengaluru alone when they could’ve reached out to BJP leaders residing in Delhi? Were they asked to do so? Why did the New Zealand embassy delete the tweet? How did journalists who are known to be close to Congress and have been carrying out publicity for the opposition get hold of the tweet even after it was deleted?
Congress has a lot to answer for and it does seem like Congress and their journalist cabal is attempting to purposely defame PM Modi internationally.
