- High court hearing on PIL
- ‘Not giving oxygen to hospitals is a crime’
- More than 34 lakh active cases of Kovid-19
Oxygen shortage crisis continues in the second wave of coronavirus in the country. The Allahabad High Court while hearing this case said that not giving oxygen to hospitals is a crime, which is not less than genocide. The culprits are those who are responsible for its supply. Hearing a public interest litigation on COVID-19, the High Court said that Kovid’s beds are being shown available in hospitals on the government portal, while calling the hospitals, they say that there are no beds.
At the behest of the High Court, a lawyer called in front of the court and narrated it to the judges. The court said that they have come to know that the Kovid protocol has been violated in the counting of panchayat elections. The court has sought CCTV footage of panchayat election centers from the government to investigate this. The court said that the State Election Commission had given an affidavit in the Supreme Court that the Kovid protocol would be followed in the counting of panchayat elections.

The High Court said that on the last hearing, it had asked the Election Commission to respond to the deaths of Kovid from the employees engaged in election duty, but the Election Commission’s emphasis is more on proving the news wrong rather than confirming these deaths. The court has set up an inquiry into the death of Justice VK Srivastava from Corona. The court said that we came to know that Justice VK Srivastava was not taken care of at RML Hospital in Lucknow. After his condition deteriorated, he was shifted to PGI, where he later died.

The High Court has asked the government whether any separate arrangement can be made for the Allahabad High Court and its Lucknow Bench lawyers to vaccinate the corona.
