The counsel for Jaipur Golden Hospital situated in Delhi's Rohini, accused the Kejriwal led government of creating a mess over oxygen supply amid the Covid-19 second wave, ANI has reported.

The counsel added that it has been facing both oxygen shortages and supply uncertainties but despite the crisis they were told off by the Delhi government.

"We made many SOS calls but were told off by the Delhi Govt. Please tell us, how many hours before deaths start happening should we call them then?", the counsel alleged.

He also alleged that the Delhi government's bureaucracy has completely failed that it does not understand the supply chain and disrupts it. He thus prayed before the court that the hospital be allowed to directly deal with the oxygen supplier without any bureaucratic interference.

"My only request to the Delhi government with folded hands, as a counsel, as a human, is that please accept the help that the businessmen are willing to give to you", the counsel for another hospital said during the hearing.

Delhi has seen a sharp rise in Covid-19 cases in the past few days which has been coupled with oxygen shortages for serious patients. Various volunteers and private citizens have joined the fight in combating the shortages.

The Kejriwal government has also come under fire over an allegedly large number of advertisements in television channels during the second wave.
