'Don't force us to take coercive steps': SC to Centre on oxygen supply to Delhi

The Supreme Court on Friday pulled up the Centre after the Delhi government complained it didn't receive 700 MT of oxygen even after the court's orders. The top court cautioned the Centre and asserted that it has to give 700 MT of oxygen to Delhi every day till this order is reviewed or modified.

"Don't force us to take coercive steps. Tell your officers to comply with our order of 700 MT of oxygen every day," the Supreme Court told Solicitor General Tushar Mehta.

While hearing the matter, the apex court yesterday told the central government that Delhi must get at least 700 tonnes of oxygen every day to meet the needs of Covid-19 patients. "If nothing is to be hidden, let it come before the nation how allocation and distribution is done transparently by the Centre," the Supreme Court added.

Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal has sought 700 tonnes of oxygen a day for the national capital. He said that "his administration won't let anyone die of oxygen shortage if it got the earmarked 700 tonnes of oxygen supply every day from the Centre."
