“Police and senior officials in Uttar Pradesh and Haryana are blocking oxygen tanks, and delaying these tanks from reaching Delhi hospitals on time,” Sisodia said in the letter.
“I urge you to ensure that the oxygen allocated to Delhi by the Center gets there without delay to save the lives of patients,” he added.
