There is an adverse situation due to coronavirus infection. It is a time of crisis. Oxygen is life saver.

“In such a situation, police officers of some states are stopping the (MP-bound) oxygen tankers, which is unfair and also a crime, Mr Chouhan said in a tweet.

In another tweet, Mr Chouhan said oxygen tankers of Madhya Pradesh were intercepted by some police officers in other states on Sunday.

I appeal to the chief ministers of these states to take strict action against such police-officers, who are stopping the tankers carrying life-saving oxygen without any reason, he said.

Several parts of MP are facing a shortage of medical oxygen, which is used to treat critical coronavirus patients.

Earlier in the day, Mr Chouhan told a meeting that efforts were being made on a war footing to ensure adequate oxygen supply for COVID-19 patients in the state.

On Sunday, the Chief Minister had said by April 30, the state will have 700 metric tonnes of medical oxygen supply.
