Did Gen VK Singh have to resort to Twitter to ‘beg’ for bed for his brother suffering from COVID? Here are the facts

Gen VK Singh's attempt to help a fellow Indian in testing COVID times was used as an opportunity for political mudslinging

Union Minister General VK Singh (R) on Sunday tried to help a fellow citizen in times of distress. A Twitter user had tagged him and requested him to help him get a bed for his brother who is suffering from Chinese coronavirus.

Tweet by Chandra Prakash Rai

At 1:20 PM, Rai tweeted to multiple people and requested a bed in Ghaziabad, Uttar Pradesh. Gen VK Singh is an MP from Ghaziabad.

Soon, he tweeted the same message and tagged the District Magistrate of Ghaziabad to help out Rai. Except, instead of quoting the tweet, Singh copied and pasted the message to the DM, Ghaziabad with request to look into it.
