Dy CM urges Centre to maintain 700MT of O2 supply to Delhi
| Sunday | 9th May, 2021
New Delhi: Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia on Saturday urged the Centre to maintain the supply of 700 MT of oxygen to Delhi, and suggested streamlining processes to ensure better distribution of the life saving-gas among states.
He claimed that the daily oxygen supply to Delhi has dipped in the past two days from 700 MT despite directions in this regard by the Supreme Court.
It is very difficult for us to manage the needs of the hospitals at less than 700 MT supply," Sisodia said.
At present, Delhi requires a minimum of 700 MT oxygen supply to cater to patients, and an increase in COVID beds and health infrastructure would necessitate oxygen allocation of 976 MT in coming days, he said.
He hoped that the Centre will cooperate with the Delhi government and ensure daily 700 MT supply of oxygen in view of the COVID crisis.
