New Delhi: Amid the lack of oxygen in the national capital, Bharatiya Janata Party’s Lok Sabha MP Gautam Gambhir has arranged 200 oxygen constructors to strengthen the fight against the deadly virus.
These oxygen constructors or cylinders will be made available to all those who are suffering from mild to moderate Kovid infection and are in isolation at home.
People living at any place in Delhi will be provided with these oxygen constructors. For this, doctor’s prescription, recent saturation level of the patient and Aadhaar details will have to be provided. Constructors can also be picked up from the office of Jagriti Enclave in Gautam Gambhir’s constituency. In addition, post-dated checks will also be required as security to prevent black marketing of the unit.
A colleague of Gambhir said that we are not charging people anything. A check can be collected upon returning the unit within seven to 10 days. People from the economically weaker section may present their EWS certificate instead of a check.
Talking about this initiative, Gambhir said that the biggest concern for the people of Delhi right now is lack of oxygen, especially for those who are engaged in the process of finding beds in hospitals. People are wandering from here to there for oxygen cylinders. Refilling them again is another difficult task for the patient’s families. These constructors will help those who are suffering from mild to moderate Kovid infection and also those who are waiting for bed in any hospital.
Gambhir alleged that the Delhi government has completely relinquished its responsibility and is now focusing only on blaming others.
The BJP MP also alleged that the Delhi government did not even take care of simple tasks like invoking oxygen tankers from other states and spent all the money on advertisements for oxygen plants. Gambhir said that while other states are setting up oxygen war rooms, Arvind Kejriwal is busy blaming the Center on TV.
Gambhir said that he will try to help as much as he can. He said that if we have to fight strongly against this deadly disease, then all of Delhi will have to stand together.
Earlier this week, the Delhi High Court questioned how they were able to distribute the medicines used to treat severe Kovid and buy them in large quantities. Gambhir started distributing fibiflu and oxygen cylinders to patients last week.
