The Delhi High Court on Tuesday issued a show-cause notice to the central government over the Oxygen shortage in the national capital. The HC asked the centre to explain why the court should not initiate contempt proceedings against it.
A division bench comprising Justices Vipin Sanghi and Rekha Palli has directed Central Government officers Sumita Dawra and Piyush Goy, who are handling oxygen allocation to states, to be present before it on Wednesday to respond to the notice.
The HC warned it might even issue a show-cause notice for contempt.
It is known that the Supreme Court ordered the centre to supply 700 MT oxygen daily to Delhi. Now, the High Court has also asked the Centre to follow the orders by whatever means.
