In a strong comment, the Supreme Court asked the Center, “not to ignore the order and force us to adopt a strict attitude. If this happens, we will have to take strict steps.” Justice DY Chandrachud and Justice Shah’s bench have said this.
In fact, on Thursday, the central government said in the Supreme Court that there is no shortage of oxygen in the hospitals of the capital Delhi. Delhi has been supplied 730 metric tonnes of oxygen on 5 May, which is more than the demand of Delhi government (700 tonnes). On this, the Supreme Court had asked the Center to ensure supply of 700 tonnes of oxygen to Delhi every day.
In the Supreme Court on Friday, Delhi government lawyer Rahul Mehra said, “yesterday (Thursday), Delhi has received only 527 MT of oxygen.” On this, Justice DY Chandrachud said that the affidavit has been given to the Center on the last day that 700 MT of oxygen has been supplied, we want to make it clear that Delhi should get 700 MT of oxygen every day, not just one day. We will see when the committee report comes.
