Uttarakhand CM dispatches 80 MT of oxygen for Garhwal, Kumaon Division

Uttarakhand Chief Minister Tirath Singh Rawat on Wednesday dispatched 80 metric tonnes of oxygen sent by the central government through the Oxygen Express at various stations in the state at the railway station at Harrawala.

The Chief Minister said that this oxygen will be sent to Garhwal Division and Kumaon Division.

"There was no shortage of oxygen in the state before but as the oxygen beds are increasing in hospitals, the consumption is also increasing. People of the state will get the benefit of this," he said.

The Chief Minister said that this oxygen supply will continue continuously.

Tirath Singh Rawat also thanked Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Union Railway Minister Piyush Goyal, saying that in view of the adverse circumstances of Uttarakhand, the state is being supplied with plenty of oxygen from the Central Government.

On the demand of the Uttarakhand Government, the Central Government has sent Oxygen Express from Tatanagar to Dehradun, with 6 containers of 20-20 metric tonnes, which contains 120 metric tonnes of liquid oxygen.
