New Delhi: Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal while reiterating on the abject shortage of oxygen supply in various hospitals across the national capital, apprised Prime Minister Narendra Modi about the situation and appealed to take strict action to contain the situation, else “there’ll be a tragedy”.
Arvind Kejriwal was among other chief ministers who attended a meeting with Prime Minister Narendra Modi over the prevailing Covid-19 situation.
“There’s a huge shortage of oxygen in Delhi. Will people of Delhi not get oxygen if there is no oxygen-producing plant here?” Arvind Kejriwal said during the meeting with PM Modi on Friday.
“Please suggest whom should I speak to when a patient at a hospital in Delhi is about to die due to lack of oxygen supply? We can’t let people die. I appeal to you to take strict action, else there will be a tragedy in Delhi.” Arvind Kejriwal said.
Arvind Kejriwal also accused other states of blocking supplies to Delhi and have asked the PM to “call the chief ministers of the states where the trucks are being stopped”.
