Hamirpur, May 3

The district will have one more oxygen plant with capacity of 120 litter per minute (LPM) to be installed at District Ayurvedic Hospital. The district already has one oxygen plant at Dr Radhakrishanan Government Medical College and Hospital having capacity 300 LPM but it is yet to be made operational.

The delay in making the existing oxygen pant operational has not only raised questions on the functioning of the administration but also on the insensitive approach of the authorities.

Meanwhile, a team identified the site for the oxygen plant at Distrcit Ayurvedic College. It is learnt that the oxygen plant was okayed by Anurag Thakur, Minister of State for Finance and Corporate Affairs, and would be installed at a cost of Rs 30 lakh.

Devashveta Banik, Deputy Commissioner, said that the oxygen plant at the medical college would be operational in the next two days and then there would be no shortage of oxygen in the district. — OC
