Shah also directed attachment with the Delhi government of two senior IAS officers — SCL Das and SS Yadav — from the central government.
After his meeting with Baijal and Kejriwal, Shah said the central government will make available its five senior officers to the Delhi government to help fight the coronavirus vigorously.
The Covid-19 tally has reached nearly 39,000 in Delhi and the virus has claimed more than 1,200 lives so far in the capital, raising an alarm in the central government.
