Bombay Municipal Corporation did some good work, without disrespecting Delhi. What they do, how they treat. We can learn from them. I also understand that Maharashtra also produces oxygen that Delhi cannot produce. ”

Mehta for his part said: “I applaud the Mumbai type. It is not a political model. As a court official, not an institution or country, we need to find a solution. People can’t run from pillar to post. This is not to underestimate Delhi’s efforts. ”

The high-level bench comprising Judge M R Shah has asked the Secretary-General and Health Secretary of the Delhi Government and Central Government officials to hold talks with the Mumbai Public Body Commission on their model to increase oxygen supply.
