Appeal to all to join hands to fight corona: Kejriwal

New Delhi, Apr 22 (MNN) Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal appealed on Thursday that the Centre and different states and their people should join hands to tackle the coronavirus pandemic in the country.

“The country will be harmed if the states are divided. We have to work together. People want to see how one state is helping another to handle the crisis. Only in this way can India be saved,” he said.
“I appeal to all the states and the Centre to join hands to fight the pandemic. If we get divided, we all will be affected,” the Aam Aadmi Party leader added.

He pointed out that with the surge in corona cases, the demand for beds and medical oxygen was increasing in different states of the country. There is a shortage in Delhi also, the Chief Minister said.

Pointing out that the Centre sets the oxygen quota for different states in India, he said that as per the Delhi government’s analysis, there was a requirement of 700 tonnes of oxygen daily.

“The Centre had allotted us a quota of 378 tonnes of oxygen which has since been increased to 480 tonnes. We are thankful to the Union government for this.”

Kejriwal also said that the Centre also decided which medical oxygen manufacturing company would supply what quantity to which state, while pointing out that Delhi did not have any manufacturing unit.

“The problem is that some states stopped the supply of oxygen meant for Delhi quota. The High Court has helped us in the last two days, for which we are grateful.”

He pointed out that day before yesterday, oxygen meant for GTB Hospital in the national capital was stopped on the border in another state. “We talked to a central Minister, who intervened to get the truck released.”

The Chief Minister said that the increased quota of oxygen would arrive in Delhi in a few days. “We are trying to airlift the consignment and also trying to improve the health infrastructure like oxygen bed and medicines etc during the six-day lockdown in the national capital.”

He assure all states that the Delhi government would help them in whatsoever manner possible. “I hope we all cooperate with the Centre and other states. We have to show the world how we have jointly fought the pandemic in tandem,” he remarked.
