Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal appealed to Prime Minister Narendra Modi to ‘make few phone calls’ to some states and solve the National Capital’s Oxygen emergency.
On Friday during a meeting with PM modi and cm of 10 states, Kejriwal requested PM for the arrangement of oxygen. Kejriwal told Modi that his phone keeps ringing as hospitals reach out to him, stating that they have two or three hours of oxygen left, because trucks meant for them have been stopped. “I want your guidance,” he said, adding that Central Ministers were helping earlier but now seem tired.
last time the same Kejriwal was found laughing during the same meeting and doing politics when a crucial meeting on Covid management held.
the central government had sanctioned funds from PM CARES Fund to Kejriwal Government in December 2020 to set up eight PSA (Pressure Swing Absorption) oxygen plants in Delhi. However, since December, only one such plant has been set up by the Kejriwal govt.
Delhi High Court in its order asks Kejriwal government when Central govt had sanctioned funds in Dec. 2020 to set up 8 Pressure Swing Absorption (PSA) Plants for production of oxygen, why only one has become operational till date. As usual, Delhi Govt had no answers. Kejriwals appealed when they have 1,72,211 cases and 1541 death in last one week. In a single day Delhi recorded 24331 cases and 348 deaths.
