Did the Kejriwal Government really inflate the oxygen demand in Delhi?
According to a report published in today's Times of India edition four hospitals of Delhi inflated oxygen demand and created an artificial demand.
When our team tried to find more details , we got to know that this report is by Peso .
What is Peso?
Petroleum And Explosives Safety Organisation (PESO) is a department formed by Government of India under Department for the Promotion of Industry and Internal Trade under Ministry of Commerce and Industry, to administer Explosives Act 1884,Explosive Substance Act, Petroleum (Production) Act 1934, Inflammable substance Act 1952 and Environment Protection Act 1986 to control import, export, transport, storage and usage of explosive materials, flammable materials, pressure vessels, cryogenic vessels, design and installation of all necessary and relevant infrastructure etc. PESO is a regulatory authority with autonomous status. The Department is headed by Chief Controller of Explosives and is headquartered at Nagpur in the State of Maharashtra in India. (Source: Wikipedia)
What are the facts really ?
☑️ This is an interim report which is based under the oxygen demand calculation theory of Central Government.
☑️Supreme court had objected the formula and had asked to calculate on the basis of requirements per bed.
☑️Gujarat got 975 MT of oxygen for 84000 active case, delhi got 480 MT oxygen for same number of active cases.
Statement of Delhi government
Today Delhi deputy CM Manish Sisodia claimed that none of the members had signed that report and no such report ever existed . He has challenged central government to release the report in Public.
As this is a very primary report , truth cannot be ascertained by the report of Peso . Delhi government also wanted to make an committee to audit death related to lack of oxygen but that was rejected by the central government .
We need to wait for clarifications of both Delhi government and Center , because supreme court is the best agency to decide who is correct . But currently on the basis of facts available it is absolutely wrong to say Delhi government inflated oxygen demand .
