The Supreme Court has asked the Centre to keep supplying 700 MT of liquid medical oxygen (LMO) to Delhi for treating COVID-19 patients on a daily basis till further orders.
A bench headed by Justice D Y Chandrachud took note of the submission of the Delhi government on deficient supply of LMO to the national capital and warned that it will pass orders against officials concerned if 700 MT of LMO is not supplied daily.
Justice Dr. Chandrachud, heading bench of SC said that 700 MT has to be supplied to Delhi on daily basis. Every single day,700 MT oxygen must be given to Delhi hospitals. We need business&until that order is modified, please comply with our directions.
Earlier, the top court had stayed the contempt proceedings against the Central government officials initiated by the Delhi high court over the issue.
