'Oxygen emergency': Centre cut Delhi's quota, claims Arvind Kejriwal

Apr 19, 2021 09:17 IST | By Editorji News Desk

Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Sunday alleged that the Centre has reduced Delhi's quota of medical oxygen and diverted it to other states.

He also wrote to Union minister Piyush Goyal, alleging that 140 Metric Tonnes of Oxygen meant for Delhi was diverted to other states and should be restored. The national capital, he said, is facing an acute shortage of oxygen, and declared the issue has become "an emergency".

Goyal said the country is making oxygen to 110 per cent of its capacity, and on Sunday tweeted a video of trucks being loaded.
