Manish Sisodia accuses Assam CM Himanta Biswas Sarma of giving PPE kit deals to wife, son

New Delhi, 4/6:As India battled the Covid-19 pandemic in 2020, then Assam health minister Himanta Biswa Sarma gave contracts to companies of his wife and son’s business partners to supply PPE kits above market rates, AAP leader Manish Sisodia alleged on Saturday citing media reports.



At a press conference, he claimed that while the Assam government procured PPE kits for Rs 600 a piece from other companies, Sarma gave urgent supply orders to the firms of his wife and son’s business partners for Rs 990 a piece “taking advantage of the Covid-19 emergency”.


The firm belonging to Sarma’s wife does not even deal in medical equipment, he alleged
