Jignesh Mevani questioned by netizens for ‘occupying a hospital bed’ and criticising Gujarat’s healthcare system

Netizens pointed out Jignesh Mevani's doublespeak about the supposed worsening condition of Coronavirus treatment in Gujarat while he was being treated at a luxurious private hospital.

On Monday (April 19), Gujarat MLA Jignesh Mevani was slammed by netizens for ‘deliberately’ occupying a hospital bed and denying hospice care for other Coronavirus infected patients. Mevani, who represents the Vadgam constituency in the Gujarat Vidhan Sabha, had informed on Friday that he had tested positive for Coronavirus.

In a tweet on Monday, the Gujarat politician alleged that the state has been drowning under the pile of dead bodies. “Co-ordinating relief efforts for people of my constituency Vadgam who are struggling with Gujarat’s pathetic healthcare. Entire State is drowning under the pile of dead bodies. To be honest, I do feel helpless. Can’t wait for my discharge so I can be with my people in Vadgam,” he tweeted.

His tweet however did not go down well with netizens. They pointed out his doublespeak about the supposed worsening condition of Coronavirus treatment in Gujarat while he was being treated at a luxurious private hospital.A Twitter user (@bharatendu2206) wrote, “Sitting in the comfort’ of a hospital ridiculing the healthcare system and managing the constituency from his mobile phone, wah kya bat hai (wow).”

One Bhavesh Lodha tweeted, “Khud VIP bed rok ke betha he aur dusre ko gyaan de raha he (You are occupying a VIP bed and patronising others about the healthcare system).”

Another user (@ugwande2) pointed out that it was because of people such as Jignesh Mevani that helpless people are unable to secure a hospital bed for the treatment of Coronavirus infection.

One Abhi Patel accused Jignesh Mevani of looking fit and fine but still occupying a hospital bed. He said, “Nice photo looks absolutely fine..why not give your bed to other??”

Earlier, he had vowed to help the people of Gujarat with emergency requirements. In a tweet on April 16, he wrote, “While I recover from Coronavirus, I will try my best to help people in Gujarat with the co-ordination of emergency requirement, whatever is possible, or even with simple RT to give wider reach. Please tag me in any requirement. I will try my best to make whatever is available.”
