On this Tweet, some netizens took to the microblogging site tweeter with some sharp reactions and questioned the timing of his sickness. The netizens expressed anguish on the expected deaths of those deprived of treatments.
अरविंद केजरीवाल की तबीयत खराब होने की टाइमिंग देखिए जो भी उसको निर्णय लेना था वह कल ले लिया कल से ही दिल्ली की 100 विडियो आ चुकी होंगी जिसमें अस्पताल वाले भर्ती नहीं ले रहे हैं लोग सड़कों पर मर रहे हैं यह सब देखते हुए एक साजिश रची गई है ताकि जवाबदेही से बचा जा सके

One twitterite has even gone on to say if he can be treated in Delhi’s government hospital as he comes from Koshambi, Haryana.
दिल्ली के मुख्यमंत्री अरविंद केजरीवाल की कल से तबियत ख़राब हो गई है, उन्हें बुख़ार भी है. कल उनका कोरोना टेस्ट होगा-
लेकिन क्या हरयाणा के कौशम्बी से आनेवाले केजरीवाल का दिल्ली में हो सकेगा इलाज?🤔🤔#पूर्वांचल_विरोधी_केजरीवाल

Such reactions are coming due to his recent announcement on Delhi’s government hospital to be opened only for Delhiites. On Sunday, the chief minister attended a digital press conference in which he announced the Delhi government’s decision to make all Delhi government and private hospitals exclusive for residents of the capital, during the corona epidemic.
Messages from other parties have also poured in from other party leaders. The newly appointed Delhi BJP chief Adesh Kumar Gupta has also expressed his grief over CM’s ill-health. He took on the twitter and said, “On getting information about Chief Minister @ArvindKejriwal Ji’s illness, I just called him and asked for his well-being. I pray to God that he gets well soon.”
AICC (All India Congress Committee) national spokesperson Sharmistha Mukherjee said, “Hope the test will come out negative. Wish @ArvindKejriwal Ji a speedy recovery.” The Delhi chief minister has also canceled all his meetings scheduled since Sunday afternoon.
