Union minister Prahlad Patel was caught on camera threatening a man, pleading oxygen from him for his Covid positive mother admitted in the hospital.
He said “aise bolega toh 2 khaayega” (you’ll get 2 slaps, if you will talk like that) to a man pleading him “It’s been 36hours…we’re so desperate….they say they will give cylinder but they didn’t….why don’t they simple say they can’t give it.”
Prahlad Patel is a BJP lok sabha MP from Damoh, Madhya Pradesh.
The main started weeping while saying “yes, that’s what I’ll get…my mother is lying there”. Prahlad then said “did anyone deny you an oxygen cylinder?” To which the man said “yes they said no. We only get one for 5minutes, it’s better not give it at all then”.
The incident took place outside Damoh district hospital. The minister clarified that the man was abusing the doctors and the nurses which has been cropped from the longer video. While, the Madhya Pradesh’s govt clarified having enough oxygen after the incidence.
