The Delhi High Court thrashed the AAP government for it’s lack of coordination and passing meaningless orders.

“Enough is enough. If you can’t do it, tell us, we will ask the Central govt to take over. People are dying!” said the Court as per LiveLaw.

A bench of Justice Vipin Sanghi and Justice Rekha Palli made these remarks after the submissions by one of the suppliers namely Seth Air on its failure to supply oxygen to Maharaja Agrasen Hospital. After noticing that the Delhi Government didn’t have an answer regarding oxygen supply. The HC pulled up the GNCTD by remaking thus: “Again we are seeing you are only doing distribution of lollipops. This man is saying he has 20 tonnes but doesn’t know who to distribute to! And you say you don’t have oxygen.”

The Delhi High Court also took suo-moto cognizance of the order passed by the Chanakyapuri sub-divisional magistrate Geeta Grover on Monday giving the nod to convert 100 rooms of Ashoka Hotel into a COVID-care facility for judges of Delhi High Court, judicial officers, and their family members.

The HC categorically denied having made a request for such a facility and said that it is “unthinkable that as an institution we would demand preferential treatment”

“Can we as an institution say that create a special facility for us? Will this not be blatantly discriminatory that people can’t get treatment and there is a facility in five-star hotel for us?”

It further thrashed the Delhi government for passing meaningless orders. “You are passing orders left, right, and center without meaning to do anything about it.. we have not even asked for it. That hospital has no manpower, no equipment, no ventilator, no medicines.

Meanwhile, Delhi recorded 24149 COVID-19 cases with a positivity rate of over 30% in the last 24 hours.
