New Delhi, 5th May. The case of the oxygen crisis in the country’s capital Delhi has now reached the Supreme Court. The central government on Wednesday challenged the Delhi High Court’s decision in the Supreme Court on the oxygen crisis, which was heard by the Supreme Court.
The Supreme Court has directed the Center to make 700 metric tonnes (mt) of oxygen available to Delhi in any case and inform the plan in the hearing to be held on Thursday. However, the Supreme Court stayed the contempt notice issued against the Center.
In the Supreme Court, Justice Chandrachud questioned the Center about how much oxygen you have given to Delhi. Also, how did the Center say in the High Court that the Supreme Court did not order 700 MT oxygen supply to Delhi.
The central government informed the court that there was not much demand for oxygen before April, but now it has suddenly increased. Delhi needs 450 MT of oxygen. The Supreme Court said that sending officials to jail and contempt proceedings will not help get oxygen, for this the Center and Delhi government will have to work together, after all the lives of the people are in danger.
