Rajender Slams Centre Over Injections, Oxygen Supply
Hyderabad, April 29 (Maxim News): State Health Minister E Rajender today criticised the Centre for its failure to assess Severity of Corona virus in Telangana and steps to prevent virus spread. He hit out at the union ministers and state BJP leaders for making false charges on Telangana with regard to cases surge. There is no truth in the comments made by the BJP leaders on Corona cases and steps being taken, he said.
He accused the centre of creating panic among the states by not supplying oxygen, injections stocks adequately. It is an insult to our nation if the Corona patients die due to oxygen shortage he charged. We demanded the oxygen from nearest states and the centre allotted from far away states he charged.
The centre should increase injections production, prices control and supply to cater to states needs Rajender demanded while making it clear that the The centre has its hold on oxygen, injections causing problems to the states. There is a need for more supply of injections and oxygen to the states he said .
We need 3.5 crore injections to administer to people in 3 months he said. However the centre was not delivering the same, he noted and added that the BJP ruled states were too suffering due to Covid pandemic while stressing that The centre should give its response on such cases surge in other states.
“We have urged for 600 tons oxygen supply a day and awaiting stocks he said and demanded immediate action to supply the same. There is no shortage of oxygen to treat Corona cases in the states,” he said
Telangana needs 270 tons oxygen a day and we get 400 tons of oxygen to as we made necessary arrangements for the purpose from other states, he claimed. (Maxim News)
