After the Delhi government alleged discrimination by the Indian government in resources for Covid, Delhi High Court on Tuesday said if medication was not being sent to places that needed them, "blood is on their hands".
Delhi High Court also raised questions on Indian government's distribution policy on oxygen and vaccines, reports the NDTV.
"If despite having the medication, it is being sent to region A instead of region B which is in need of said medication, then be sure, blood is on their hands," the Delhi High Court said.
On Monday, the Delhi government had alleged in court that it was falling short of oxygen for Covid patients because supplies were being diverted to "one of the largest states" of the country. Delhi did not take names, saying it could become political.
The High Court told the centre that enough oxygen was not being supplied to Covid patients in Delhi and questioned whether it could be diverted from industries.
"Industries can wait. Patients cannot. Human lives are at stake," a bench of Justices Vipin Sanghi and Rekha Palli said to the centre.
