Chandigarh, May 3
With Haryana feeling pressure over curtailed supply of oxygen, the government today urged the Centre to step up supplies to meet the shortfall in its allocated quota.
The government has assigned daily quota of oxygen to all districts. Sources said the state was forced to rationalise the supply since it was getting way short of its sanctioned quota.
Low supply, Khattar reaches out to Centre
- The state is getting 252 MT of oxygen against the requirement of 300 MT
- There has been no supply from the Roorkee plant, which provides 25 MT per day, for the past two days
- The Panipat plant has curtailed supply from 100 MT to 85 MT
Besides, no supply has been received from the Roorkee plant, which provides 25 MT per day, for the past two days. The Panipat plant too has informed the government that they could give only 85 MT of oxygen against 100 MT. In view of the crunch, the Hisar administration has alerted hospitals to use oxygen judiciously for the next two days.
The sources said the CM was in touch with the Centre and had also sought allocation from alternative sources.
They said that Panchkula, Jhajjar and Sonepat districts were “vulnerable” and hospitals there might face an acute shortage of oxygen if the allocated quota did not arrive by Tuesday. Health Minister Anil Vij said the state was getting 252 MT of oxygen against the requirement of 300 MT. “There is no supply from Roorkee due to some technical and transportation issues. We are working on it,” he said.
