Captain wrote a letter to the Center for Oxygen:
Earlier, in view of the lack of oxygen for Kovid-19 patients, Punjab Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh wrote a letter to the central government demanding uninterrupted oxygen supply to the state. He also objected to the linking of the Punjab quota of oxygen with Chandigarh. He demanded immediate consideration of the request for supply of uninterrupted oxygen by liquid medical oxygen (LMO) suppliers on a daily basis. He also appealed that 120 MT of medical oxygen be supplied daily to Punjab. This should be separate from the 22 MT portion to be given to PGI Chandigarh out of the quota of Punjab.
