- PPE kit scam issue reached Rajya Sabha
- Sanjay Singh demands CBI inquiry
- Kit has been purchased at five times higher price in UP
The issue of PPE Kit Scam has been raised in the Rajya Sabha amid the coronavirus epidemic. The leader of the Aam Aadmi Party and Rajya Sabha MP Sanjay Singh continues to be aggressive about this issue. Now he has raised this issue in the House and has demanded a CBI inquiry into the matter. Speaking to NewsBust, Sanjay Singh said, 'I have demanded in the Rajya Sabha that the PPE kit scams that have taken place in several other states including Uttar Pradesh and Himachal Pradesh, should have a CBI inquiry. Up to 800 percent commission has been taken in the purchase of oximeter in UP. All these should have a CBI inquiry.
However, when Sanjay Singh said in the House that he wanted to raise the issue of irregularities in the purchase of Kovid-19 Kits in Uttar Pradesh, the Deputy Chairman of the Rajya Sabha stopped him and said that he cannot raise the issue of state specific in the House.
Prior to this, Sanjay Singh has also raised this issue on social media. He had made a tweet comparing the purchase of Corona Kit in UP with the products available on online shopping sites, in which he said, 'Yogiji please pay attention. If the price of the oximeter is Rs 800, the thermometer is Rs 1800 when you buy online, then why did the DM of Sultanpur buy the Kovid survey kit for Rs 9950? How much brokerage did you take? Corruption in the name of Corona is like brokerage in the crematorium. '
