The Delhi High Court has told the Central Government on the supply of sufficient oxygen in Delhi that you have to follow the order of the Supreme Court. Contempt proceedings can be the last thing. Enough is Enough. Will not listen in response to oxygen supply. There is no way that you will not supply 700 immediately. We will not hear anything except compliance. HC said in its order, ‘It has been brought to our attention that Delhi is not getting the required oxygen. The Supreme Court has passed an order directing the Center to do so. The Center has said that a compliance affidavit is being filed before the Supreme Court tomorrow. We fail to understand what the affidavit will do when the necessary oxygen is not being brought to Delhi, even for one day, the allotted oxygen has not been distributed. The High Court issued a notice to the Central Government asking why contempt action should not be taken for not following our order of May 1, while the Supreme Court also passed the order giving oxygen.
The HC said that the Center says that the Supreme Court has not directed Delhi to supply 700 metric tons of oxygen. We disagree with the Center. The Supreme Court has clearly directed the Center to provide 700 metric tonnes of oxygen per day to Delhi to meet the shortage. The assurance given by the Center before the Supreme Court is definitely not being fulfilled. We supply SoS to hospitals and nursing homes day and night to supply oxygen
Watching privately. The Supreme Court has also taken into consideration the estimated demand of 976 MT per day of Delhi Government once the medical infrastructure will increase. The High Court issued a notice to the Central Government asking why contempt action should not be taken for not complying with our order of May 1, while the Supreme Court also passed the order giving oxygen.
The High Court directed the Central Government officials to remain present in the court. HC said that we do not know how correct the compliance affidavit of the Center will be. Even earlier, the amount of 490 metric tons of oxygen has not been distributed for a day. ASG Chetan Sharma submitted that SC has not directed Delhi to supply 700 MT of oxygen. We disagree. We reject that GNCTD is not entitled to receive 700 MT per day in view of the existing infrastructure. HC said that it pains us how the center is looking at the aspect of oxygen supply. We see the serious reality every day because the hospital has to reduce the number of beds. The officers of the center have been ordered to appear in the hearing to be held on Wednesday.
