A political battle has erupted between Delhi's Aam Aadmi Party government and the Bharatiya Janata Party over an interim report submitted by a Supreme Court-appointed panel to conduct an oxygen utilization audit in Delhi, which has indicted the Delhi government for "gross discrepancies" in recording the demand for medical oxygen by its hospitals, as well as inflating demand by more than five times.

Delhi Deputy CM Manish Sisodia said: “The Supreme Court set up an oxygen audit committee. We spoke to members of the committee. They said that they have not approved or signed any report till now. Then what report is it? Where has it come from? I challenge the BJP to get a report which has been signed and approved by the oxygen audit committee.”

Dr. Randeep Guleria, director of AIIMS, is the panel's chairman. Subodh Yadav, a joint secretary in the Jal Shakti ministry, Dr. Sandeep Budhiraja from Max Healthcare, Bhupinder S Bhalla, principal secretary, home, Delhi government, and Sanjay Kumar Singh, explosives controller at the Petroleum and Explosives Safety Organization, are among the other participants (PESO).

The findings elicited a swift reaction from the BJP.  “It is unbelievable to see that Arvind Kejriwal and Delhi government politicized oxygen supply when Covid was at its peak. This is such petty politics. The data presented by Oxygen Audit Committee in the report is shocking,” party’s national spokesperson Sambit Patra said in a press conference.

“The demand for four times more oxygen was made by the Delhi government, due to which the oxygen tankers remained on the road. Had this oxygen been used in other states, many lives could have been saved. This is a heinous crime committed by Arvind Kejriwal Ji,” he added.
