Andhra Pradesh’s ruling Telugu Desam Party spokesperson K Pattabhiram said, “What the government has told in the House is shocking. We advise the government to improve its figures. Because due to non-availability of oxygen from the center on time, more than 30 people had stopped breathing in Tirupati’s Ruia Hospital alone.
Apart from this, there were many deaths due to lack of oxygen in Viziangaram, Kurnool and many other towns and cities. Our government had even demanded a compensation of Rs 25 lakh for the next of kin of those who died due to lack of oxygen. Andhra Pradesh Congress leader V Gurudham said, “At least 50 lives were lost across the state due to the government’s lax supply policy. He said, “Health is a state subject but the supply of oxygen is in the hands of the Centre, which was not good due to which the situation worsened.”
Center’s poor oxygen supply policy caused major devastation: Sisodia
Delhi Deputy CM Manish Sisodia said, the policy of wrong oxygen supply of the central government made the second wave so frightening. The Center is responsible for the shortage of oxygen in many states including the capital and due to this many serious corona patients stopped breathing. Delhi Health Minister Satyendar Jain said, the government has lied in the house. In Delhi itself, many people died due to lack of oxygen. But the government does not see this.
Chhattisgarh said, there was enough oxygen, there was no death due to shortage
Chhattisgarh Health Minister TS Singh Deo said that there was no shortage of oxygen in his state during the second wave. Amidst a flurry of political allegations following the Centre’s statement in the Rajya Sabha, Dev said, “It is true that no one’s breath stopped due to the shortage of air in Chhattisgarh.” There may have been some difficulties regarding management, but no one died due to lack of oxygen. Accusing the government of taking all the credit, Dev said, it is fortunate that the Center finally said that health is a state subject, otherwise till now it was being shown that the Center is doing all the good work and the wrong state.
No death due to lack of oxygen in Tamil Nadu
Tamil Nadu Health Secretary J Radhakrishnan also said that no one died due to lack of oxygen here. An entire team was taking care of the oxygen supply in the state. We ensured that there is no shortage of oxygen in government and private hospitals.
