New Zealand Foreign Minister Nania Mahuta confirmed the employee’s death. He said that the worker for whom help was sought by the High Commission on social media, died. We tried our best to help as much as possible from our country. He said that since the year 1986 when Sir Edmund Hillary was the High Commissioner, the employee was serving in the High Commissioner. We are grateful for the work and support for so long.

What was the matter?

Let us know that on 2 May, the New Zealand High Commissioner based in Delhi had demanded oxygen for one of its employees. In this tweet, an appeal was made by tagging the Youth Wing Youth Congress of the opposition party Congress. However, the High Commissioner deleted the tweet after a while. The move to delete the tweet raised the question whether the New Zealand High Commission was pressurized by the Indian government to delete the tweet? However, the High Commissioner later clarified in another tweet that our appeal was misinterpreted, for which we apologize.

The Ministry of External Affairs was upset over this incident. The Ministry of External Affairs had tweeted that the Chiefs of Protocol and Heads of Divisions are in touch with all the High Commissions and Embassies. The Ministry of External Affairs is constantly active on all medical demands, especially those related to Kovid. In view of the state of the epidemic, there is an appeal to everyone not to try to gather the necessary supplies.
