HC asks Centre why Madhya Pradesh allocated more oxygen cylinders than Delhi.
On Thursday, Delhi High Court asks the center why Madhya Pradesh was allocated more oxygen cylinders than the demanded cylinders while the Delhi demand was not met. A bench of Justice Vipin Singhai observed, "We are not saying that people in the other parts of the country should die. But if the demand of a particular state is x, then why did you give it x+y? Why don't you give y to Delhi?" The court observed that the demand in Madhya Pradesh was 445MT while the supply was 540MT. While in Maharashtra also there was the same condition the demand was 1500MT, and the supply given to them was 1,661MT.
Solicitor Tushar Mehta questioned the Centre of allocating more oxygen in Madhya Pradesh and Maharashtra, while some states were struggling to get the required demand.
The Delhi High Court also asked the police to circulate the seized oxygen cylinders and medicines they have seized during the black marketing to be put to use for the patients. And they also ordered the police not to seize the cylinders and medicines from the patients as they might have bought for their emergency situations at a higher price.
The court observed not to keep the seized essential medicines and cylinders but should be kept in circulation.
