During a meeting of Prime Minister Narendra Modi with the chief ministers of 10 states worst hit by the deadly second wave of Covid, Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal highlighted the issue of oxygen crisis at hospitals in the national capital.

“There’s a huge shortage of oxygen in Delhi. Will people of Delhi not get oxygen if there is no oxygen-producing plant here? Please suggest whom should I speak to in Central Govt when an oxygen tanker destined for Delhi is stopped in another state,” Kewjrial said.

“I request with folded hands that PM gives direction to CMs to ensure smooth movement of oxygen tankers coming to Delhi,” he added.

Kejriwal urged PM Modi to facilitate the airlifting of oxygen from West Bengal and Odisha to resolve the shortage in Delhi Hospitals.
