The process of reaching the Delhi High Court for lack of oxygen is not taking the name of stopping. During the hearing, Muni Maya Ram Jain Hospital located in KD block of Pitampura once again sought Mangalwar to provide oxygen to the High Court. Appearing for the hospital, Sanju Mishra said that one or two deaths are happening here every day, but we are not being given oxygen. We are small hospitals and therefore we should not be ignored.
Muni Maya Raj Zen Hospital appealed to the High Court during the hearing
While contacting the High Court at around one o'clock in the day, Sanju said that we have 30 beds and the condition of many patients here is critical. A bench of Justice Vipin Sanghi and Justice Rekha Palli asked the Delhi government to look into the matter and provide oxygen. After this, the hospital again approached the court once around three and a half hours and said that they had not received oxygen till now. On this, Delhi government advocate Satyakam told the bench that an attempt was made to contact the hospital, but no contact number was found for him. At the same time, no one contacted the hospital on behalf of the court. The bench asked the hospital representative to share his number with the Delhi government advocate and he would be provided with oxygen.
Advocate on warning without giving statement of authority
In the case of Ramesh Gupta, Chairman of Bar Council of Delhi, appearing on behalf of Rockland Hospital, the bench warned Advocate Yashvardhan Som not to do so in future. During the hearing, Delhi Government Standing Counsel Rahul Mehra told the bench that BCD Ramesh Gupta has informed him that the said advocate Yashvardhan did not have the right to appear on behalf of Rockland Hospital. At the same time, Yashvardhan Som said that he had the right.
When the bench asked why it did so, they replied that it was done for the benefit of the people. At the same time, the advocate appearing for Rockland Hospital told the bench that Rockland Hospital is now known as Medyour Hospital and they want to operate the hospital themselves. To this, Ramesh Gupta said that he agrees with the management to run the hospital itself. In such a situation, there is no need to order the key to BCD and in a day or two, anyone can give us oxygen facility. The bench then withdrew the May 3 order to hand over the key to BCD.
