Rupani government on oxygen
Gandhinagar, 24 April 2021
The work which should have been done a year ago has now been approved by Amit Shah and Narendra Modi. Hundreds of people have died in Gujarat due to a lack of oxygen. If that oxygen plant had been built earlier, humans would not have died. Now the central government has given in-principle approval to build 11 new oxygen plants. Kovid patients require an average of 5–10 liters of oxygen per minute. The average waiting period for installing a new unit of oxygen is 28 days.
A year ago, 50 Oxyzip plants were required to be set up in Gujarat to provide oxygen. Home Minister Amit Shah, who is reluctant to do so, is standing near the oxygen plant and taking a picture. They should be really ashamed that the people of Gujarat have not been able to set up any such plant by the BJP government. Hence embracing death. Neither Rupani nor the Modi government had enough time to plant so much. His piece did nothing due to his short-sightedness.

Union Home Minister Amit Shah inaugurated the 280 PSA oxygen plant at Kovind Named Hospital in Kolwara in Gandhinagar district. At the time, Union Home Minister Amit Shah apologized to the people for the death of Kovid patients without oxygen in Gujarat. But the two embarrassing leaders did nothing of the sort. The public is very angry.
Today 66 patients are being treated in Kolwara. Patients will receive 280 liters of oxygen per minute. Not only this, oxygen cylinders are also provided here for emergencies.
Prime Minister’s incompetence
The work that the Prime Minister of the country should have done in April 2020 starts a year after the crisis is over. Inability has become the hallmark of Modi. A special campaign has been launched to provide oxygen from the PM Care Fund. As part of which, the Central Government has approved the establishment of 11 new PSA oxygen plants in Gujarat.
Gujarat did not get oxygen
People die in Gujarat and make false statements about giving to other states. The excess amount of oxygen produced will be transported to other states. When Gujarat is an industrial state, more oxygen is being produced.
At the helipad ground in Gandhinagar, the 1200-bed hospital will soon be operational in collaboration with Tata Sons and DRDO. In which 600-bed ICU facility will be available.
One million patients
The state has 71,021 beds. There are 92,000 active cases of corona in the state, which can cross one lakh in a day or two.
On 12 April, Chief Minister Vijay Rupani said that the demand for oxygen in the state was increasing. The demand for medical oxygen, which was 250 tonnes in November, has increased to 600 tonnes.
The first ‘Oxygen Express’ train loaded with 100T of liquid medical oxygen has left for Maharashtra from Visakhapatnam Steel Plant.

Failed to plan
The state requires 1050 metric tonnes of oxygen.
The central government has decided to have a train with 20 tankers ready on 23 April 2021 to deliver 1000 tonnes of oxygen instead of the earlier plan. Gujarat can get 20,000 liters of liquid oxygen through 20 racks. If Gujarat has enough oxygen, but the Rupani government cannot distribute it.
Presently, Gujarat produces 1200 tonnes of oxygen against the requirement of 1000 tonnes. There is also no cylinder or tank to dispense.
The number of patients doubled
Earlier 20% of the patients had to be given oxygen, now 45% will have to be given. The oxygen requirement in March 2021 was 400 tonnes. Oxygen consumption has increased 7-fold. Oxygen consumption in the country was 700 TPD (tons per day) before the Corona epidemic. After the arrival of the corona, the consumption of oxygen increased to 2800 tpd. However, oxygen consumption in the second wave has increased by seven times to 5000 TPD compared to last year.
1 thousand tons against 75 tons
As of March 22, 2021, Gujarat used 75 metric tons of oxygen per day. On 22 April, daily oxygen consumption reached 1,000 metric tons. Eighty-five percent of hospitals in Gujarat depend entirely on oxygen cylinders to save patients. Ahmedabad’s 5500-bed private hospital is 98 percent full. Most of these patients require oxygen beds.
