After the recent deaths in #Gwalior due to shortage of medical oxygen, BJP Rajya Sabha member Jyotiraditya #Scindia has assured 24-hour oxygen supply to Gwalior and other districts, including in Malwa region and prepared a 48-hour monitoring plan to do away with the crisis. He has also ensured supply of 35,000 #Remdesivir injections.
The 48-hour plan, from the night of April 27 to the morning of April 30, will ensure oxygen supply of 43 tonnes in Gwalior and other districts through continuous monitoring. “From April 27 midnight, an 18-tonne tanker will arrive from #INOX, Modi Nagar with medical oxygen. On April 28, two 10-tonne tankers will arrive from Sagar (Oxygen Express) and 15 tonnes will be supplied to Gwalior city,” read the plan.
“On April 28, another 18-tonne tanker will arrive from INOX Modi Nagar, out of which 10 tonnes will be available for patients in Gwalior,” said a BJP state functionary. He said in the next 24 hours, from April 28 midnight to April 29 midnight, Gwalior will get 48 tonnes of oxygen through another arrangement. “An 18-tonne tanker will arrive from Modi Nagar. Apart from this, two tankers of 15-15 tonnes will reach from Bokaro Steel Plant, making the availability of a total of 30 tonnes. At present, Gwalior currently requires about 40 to 42 tonnes of oxygen every 24 hours,” he said.
“Scindia ji has been monitoring the supply of oxygen not only in Gwalior and adjacent districts but also in other parts of the state, including Mandsaur and Ratlam. Covid centres are functional in #Shivpuri, Guna, Sheopur and other places. He has also ensured supply of 35,000 Remdesivir injections,” BJP state spokesperson Pankaj Chaturvedi told TOI.
Scindia also lauded efforts undertaken by the local ministers, public representatives and doctors for taking immediate action in Gwalior civil hospital a day before. “As soon as news of lack of oxygen in the Kamla Raja Hospital, operated under Gwalior Jaya Arogya Group was received, the oxygen tanker coming to Gwalior was immediately diverted to Kamla Raja hospital to ensure #oxygen supply,” he said.
Meanwhile, state finance minister Jagdish Devda has also expressed gratitude towards chief minister Shivraj Singh #Chouhan and Scindia for ensuring oxygen supply to Mandsaur and Ratlam.
