On Monday, a Delhi government order had said that 100 rooms at the hotel Ashoka had been booked for High Court judges and their families.
The Delhi High Court today said it had never asked for Covid facilities at a five-star hotel and told the city government that its order is wrong. Yesterday, an order had said that 100 rooms at the hotel Ashoka had been booked for High Court judges and their families.
“When did we ask for a 100-bed facility at a five-star hotel? We had only said if a judicial officer or a judge or their family is infected, they should get hospital admission,” the High Court said told the Delhi Government.
“Why did you cause this sort of debate? It seems like we asked Delhi Government for this facility. Or you did it to please us. You did everything on paper,” said the judges, upset at the debate over the five-star Covid facilities for them at a time people are struggling for hospital beds.
