Palampur, May 3

A small private oxygen plant at Kalund village, 10 km from here, has been commissioned to meet the growing demand in Kangra district.

Ravi Dhiman, owner of the plant, said he was refilling over 200 oxygen cylinders daily and supplying these to government as well as private hospitals.

He said his plant was functioning round the clock to meet the demand. He was supplying oxygen to Dharamsala, Kangra, Chamba, Jogindernagar and Paprola and also providing oxygen to patients in home isolation.

Meanwhile, Palampur MLA Ashish Butail, in a letter written to Chief Minister Jai Ram Thakur, requested him to allocate funds for an oxygen plant in the Palampur Civil Hospital. He said the 200-bed hospital needed an oxygen plant. The hospital caters to the medical needs of Palampur, Baijnath, Jaisinghpur and Dheera. — OC
