The shortage of oxygen supply in Uttar Pradesh is alarming, especially in Lucknow and Gautam Budh Nagar. Chhattisgarh chief minister Bhupesh Baghel on Sunday sent 16 tonnes of oxygen to Medanta hospital in Lucknow on the request made by Priyanka Gandhi, the Congress general secretary.
Bhupesh Baghel tweeted, he received a phone call from Priyanka Gandhi informing the massive shortage of oxygen crisis and he had sent the tankers on her instructions.
Meanwhile the Yogi Adityanath led government is claiming there is no shortage of oxygen in UP. People are trying to spread rumours and propaganda on social media to spoil the atmosphere, Adityanath, one of the senior saffron politicians in the country claims.
Chief Minister Yogi also said during a virtual interaction with selected Journalists, the news about shortage of oxygen is black marketing and hoarding which will be handled with a heavy hand.
