Many things have come to the fore in the riots on a report related to the oxygen crisis in Delhi. The Union Health Ministry has filed an affidavit in the Supreme Court, citing the preliminary report of the panel constituted by the Supreme Court.
In this report, many shortcomings have been highlighted regarding the oxygen crisis in Delhi during the second wave of Corona and the immediate increased demand. In the affidavit filed by the Joint Secretary of the Ministry of Health on June 22, the shortcomings regarding oxygen supply have been put forward.
According to the affidavit, on May 13, the task force found that the demand for oxygen in Delhi was four times more than the consumption. When the report found that wrong claims were made by the hospitals, the figures were corrected.
Data was available with the committee from May 10, while the peak started in Delhi from May 2. However, the data till April 29 was made available. It has been found in the report that the Delhi government had problems with the portal from day one.
Hospitals could not differentiate the demand of oxygen, the report said that this happened because some hospitals could not differentiate between kilo liters and metric ton, when the demand was said to be 700 MT, it was not tested. Not only this, it has also come to the fore that the data of big hospitals, cylinder data of small hospitals, data of refiller stations are largely missing.
Regarding oxygen, the Delhi government took a different path from the central government’s formula, the center’s formula says that for 92-94 percent oxygen saturation, 50 percent non-ICU beds should be counted. But the Delhi government’s formula counts 100% of the beds.
In the report, questions have been raised on tanker oxygen supply in Delhi, as well as questions have been raised regarding the transport, uploading and storage of oxygen. According to the task force, on May 13, Delhi needed 290-400 MT of oxygen, of which 100 MT was reserved for emergency. Right now this is the preliminary report of the task force, further data is being examined by the committee. But from now on, the political war has started over it.
War started between Aam Aadmi Party and BJP
There has been an uproar over this report that came out regarding the oxygen crisis in the capital Delhi. The Bharatiya Janata Party claims that the shortcomings of the Arvind Kejriwal government have been exposed in the report of the panel constituted by the Supreme Court. On the other hand Manish Sisodia says that no such report has come.
Now another claim has been made by BJP. There has been a tweet on behalf of BJP leaders that claims that the Delhi government has received the report of the panel constituted by the Supreme Court three days ago, yet they are not accepting the truth.
BJP IT cell chief Amit Malviya tweeted and wrote that the Delhi government had received the oxygen audit report three days ago. But Manish Sisodia came immediately and denied this report. Apart from Amit Malviya, the same allegations have been made by tweeting on behalf of Sambit Patra. Sambit Patra had made serious allegations against the Delhi government by holding a press conference earlier.
