  • HC slams Centre over lack of oxygen in Delhi 

    The Delhi High Court on Wednesday slammed the central government for lack of oxygen in Delhi; asked the Centre how it will overcome oxygen shortage without delivering the allocated amount. The HC said that ample chances had been given to the central government, but it was not happy with the lack of urgency displayed by the government. Senior Advocate Rahul Mehra, appearing for the Delhi government said the state government had been allocated 490 MT of oxygen but not all of it has reached Delhi; the amount has not even touched 400 MT for now.
    On the basis of the estimation and taking into account the standard for calculation, and bed capacity of hospitals, the GNCTD has made the allocation of medical oxygen to hospitals in Delhi, Mehra told the court.
