“Problem Is In Delhi As Both Centre & State Think It Is Theirs”: Delhi High Court On Covid-19 Management In Capital

first_imgNews Updates”Problem Is In Delhi As Both Centre & State Think It Is Theirs”: Delhi High Court On Covid-19 Management In Capital Srishti Ojha12 May 2021 9:09 AMShare This – xHearing a batch of pleas on various aspects of the management of the Covid-19 pandemic in the national capital, the Delhi High Court which has been hearing the pleas for nearly 3 weeks now, today remarked, “The problem is in Delhi because both Centre and State think Delhi is theirs.”To this, Sr. Adv. Rahul Mehra, responded stating that the Centre should not just think but also “act like Delhi is theirs,” and further alleged that Delhi has seen oversight by the Centre in Covid-19 matters from day 1, even as the court repeated that they should not stoop to the level of “squabbling”. The centre responded by saying that these were allegations leveled on a “daily basis” that would serve to “lower the level of the court” unless checked.The court was on the issue of discrimination alleged by Delhi government in terms of distribution of medical equipments that have been received by India from foreign nations to specific hospitals only. Mehra appearing for Delhi said, “I’d like to flag one thing… Union of India is giving infrastructure to hospitals not available to Delhi citizens. They could have given to private hospitals, we aren’t saying give to Delhi government hospitals.”Mehra emphasized that the amicus curiae Sr. Adv. Rajshekhar Rao had also stated that infrastructure was only given by the Centre to these select hospitals, which infact have very little capacity.Delhi government further alleged that though it had started writing to the Centre on May 4 itself, and multiple times thereafter, the Centre had not changed its decision.Upon the submission the court directed Additional Solicitor General Chetan Sharma appearing for the Centre to look into the issue, upon which he replied that Delhi’s allegations were vague and it needed to be shown how discrimination is being made.Rao interjected to explain at this point, “Discrimination would be an inappropriate term. What we were saying is if someone is applying their mind to ensure that aid is going to places that need it, rather than those that already have it.”Taking note of the allegations, and facts, the bench observed, “On one hand many central hospitals haven’t given beds for Covid. We aren’t saying that you give it, because non-Covid hospitals are also required.”It however directed the Centre to look into the issue, warning that the Centre should not just give Delhi N-95 masks in terms of Covid-19 aid, and that while it would pass an order on the matter, the Centre should try to remedy the situation before that.The bench has further directed the centre to “make a compilation with details as to what aid was received and was was given to Delhi and to which hospitals.”Edited by Shreya Agarwal TagsDelhi High Court Covid-19 Central Government Delhi Government Next Storylast_img read more

Football News Manchester United determined to dent Liverpool’s title hopes in Premier League

first_imghighlights Manchester: Manchester United fans are desperate to deny Liverpool Premier League glory this season, even if it means another title for their cross-town rivals Manchester City. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s in-form team have a chance to severely dent Liverpool’s chances on Sunday when they host Jurgen Klopp’s side in a fixture that has weighty historical importance to go with its significance in the title race. The match is effectively Liverpool’s game in hand, with City, level on points at the top of the table after playing a game extra, facing Chelsea in the League Cup final on the same day. But they face a rejuvenated United under interim boss Solskjaer, who has lifted them into the top four since he took over from the beleaguered Jose Mourinho, sacked in December following a 3-1 drubbing at Anfield.             In his spell of more than 26 years as manager at Old Trafford, Alex Ferguson argued more than once that a meeting with Liverpool, rather than City, was United’s true derby. It is a feeling that still holds sway among the club’s fans, even though City have risen to win the Premier League three times since 2012 and have become the dominant force in Manchester. “I think you have got to look at the rivalry,” said Rob Mager, a supporter for 30 years and the designer for the club fanzine “United We Stand”.”United and Liverpool have been, historically, the two titans of English football. Over the years, Liverpool have been the more worthy rival than Manchester City and it’s been a case of familiarity breeding contempt.”RELATED The antipathy between these two northwest cities, 56 kilometres (35 miles) apart, dates back at least to the economic rivalry inspired by the industrial revolution starting in the 18th century. On the pitch, the mutual dislike between United and Liverpool has grown since the early 1960s, with the clubs taking turns to rule the English game — racking up 38 league titles and eight European Cups between them. United have not won the Premier League since 2013 and are realistically out of the running this season but would still love to prevent Liverpool from becoming English champions for the first time since 1990.              Tough task         With United taking 25 points from a possible 27 since Solskjaer became their caretaker-manager, Klopp knows this is probably his side’s most difficult fixture of the run-in and believes the home team will be a different proposition from the team that surrendered at Anfield.   “It’s a big one and we know that it’s a difficult one as well,” he said, adding that United’s attacking players were brimming with confidence. “They are in a really good moment, really good moment. They are physically strong, they defend well, they attack well.” United have ambitions of their own to finish in the top four, a dream that appeared to have died during the troubled end of Mourinho’s reign. “For them, it’s a big game, for us, it’s a big game,” said Solskjaer. “We want to be in the top four and we know how big this game is for Manchester United, for the staff, for the supporters.We’re looking forward to another challenge for this team because we want to build this team into one worthy of Manchester United’s history. It’s another big step if we can do that at home. Tottenham, Arsenal, Chelsea were all fantastic wins away — now we have to perform at home as well.”                Mager is tipping City to win the league, and would rather they were crowned champions.             “Liverpool are our one true rival,” he said. “City are more like an annoying little brother. If it was down to me, though, I’d rather neither of them won it. In this season’s title race, I would go for Spurs all day long.”  For all the Latest Sports News News, Football News News, Download News Nation Android and iOS Mobile Apps.center_img Liverpool and Manchester City are level on points in the Premier League.Jose Mourinho was sacked after Manchester United lost to Liverpool in December 2018.Manchester City face Chelsea in League Cup final.last_img read more
