Oxygen Crisis in MP: Increased crisis due to not having enough tanker lorry to transport oxygen
Bhopal, Navdunia Representative, Oxygen Crisis in MP:. Tanker lorry is not available so that oxygen supply can be done smoothly in the state including the capital Bhopal. This is why the Oxygen Express with the capacity to bring ten tanker lorries is reaching Bhopal, Sagar, Jabalpur with only four or six tankers, whereas it would have taken the same amount of time and fuel to bring 10 tankers. Here, the railway department is charging one lakh rupees from the government for bringing a tanker from Bokaro. In this way, only two tankers have reached Bhopal by rail. Recently, the government has paid two lakh rupees. After this, the train is not being used to bring Bhopal, while in Sagar and Jabalpur, oxygen tankers are still being transported by train.
Let us tell you that the government is getting oxygen tankers from three big liquid oxygen suppliers like Inox, Einert, Winwin to supply oxygen to hospitals. Apart from this, the oxygen plant of Rourkela, Jamnagar, Bhilai, Bokaro, Modinagar is also being used to supply the tankers of oxygen through Air Force aircraft, Special Oxygen Express of Railways, but for this there is also no availability of oxygen tanker lorry. The reason is not being supplied uninterruptedly.
