No report on oxygen was presented in Supreme Court: Manish Sisodia

 25 Jun 2021 ( IBTN Bureau )

There are reports in the Indian media that an 'Oxygen Audit Committee' set up by the Supreme Court of India has claimed in its report that the 'Kejriwal government demanded four times more oxygen than it needed' during the second wave of the corona pandemic.

But the Aam Aadmi Party has questioned the very existence of such a report.

According to the news published in the newspapers, the Delhi government actually needed about 289 metric tonnes of oxygen, but about 1,200 metric tonnes of oxygen was demanded by them.

People associated with the Aam Aadmi Party say that this report is not of the Supreme Court panel, but of a sub-panel which has been sent to the main panel and this sub-panel is actually of the Narendra Modi government at the Center. Significantly, there is a BJP government at the Centre.

Aam Aadmi Party's answer

Aam Aadmi Party has strongly denied this news. Aam Aadmi Party leader and Deputy Chief Minister of Delhi Manish Sisodia told the media that there is no such report.

Manish Sisodia said, "The truth is that there is no such report. BJP is lying. The Supreme Court has formed an oxygen audit committee. We have spoken to many of its members. They say that they have not signed the report yet. If the report is not approved, then where is this report? I challenge you to bring the report which has been approved. Lies abound."

Reports in the media said that the impact of the Kejriwal government's excessive demand was seen in 12 states where many patients lost their lives due to lack of oxygen.

During the second wave of corona epidemic in India, there was a severe shortage of oxygen. Many times there were reports that many patients died overnight due to lack of oxygen.

At that time, the Kejriwal government had demanded oxygen from the central government.

On the basis of this alleged report, many leaders of Bharatiya Janata Party are now besieging Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal.
