Kejriwal had pulled up Health Minister Satyendar Jain over shortage of ventilators in hospitals who in turn sought to shift the blame to Lt Governor Najeeb Jung accusing the Health Secretary “appointed by him” of not reaching hospital to deal with a case of medical negligence.

Jain had received information about death of a patient on December 10 in Lok Nayak Hospital allegedly because he was not provided with ventilator support.
