The Delhi High Court had issued a notice to the officers of the Centre for contempt proceedings. But now the Supreme Court has stayed it. And said that now the act of contempt will no longer work. With this, the Center has been prohibited from changing the order to deliver 700 mt of oxygen daily. The Supreme Court says that the High Court is conducting its daily operations. But contempt proceedings against officers will not lead to any solution. Right now the country is dying of corona. Everyone needs to work together and all the attention should be given to saving the lives of the people.
With this, the court has said that “At this stage when the country is facing a serious epidemic of unprecedented human dimensions. We need to adopt a problem solving approach. When the Supreme Court considers an issue, He has to look at things from the point of view of the whole country. We agree with the Solicitor General that there should be a special audit of the demand for oxygen in Delhi. To know how much oxygen may be needed in 2021 in Delhi. “
SC asked to adopt Mumbai model
The Supreme Court has told Delhi and the Central Government that they will soon contact the MCM for oxygen supply in Mumbai. And tell the center on Thursday how it will ensure 700 mt of oxygen to Delhi.
The Supreme Court said that a stay on contempt proceedings does not mean that the High Court has been stopped from hearing on the situation of oxygen in Delhi. She will continue the hearing. The Chief Secretary of Delhi, Health Secretary and the officers of the Center should meet in the evening for oxygen supply in Delhi.
