1. Abhishek Gupta, owner of an oxygen plant in Mayapuri and Inderjeet Singh Monty, president of Mayapuri Trading Association saw the oxygen crisis Delhi is facing and worked round-the-clock to provide oxygen to private hospitals in west Delhi. People from all over Delhi who are in urgent need of medical oxygen have received help from them and over the past few days 500-600 people went there to get their cylinders refilled. “The whole cost of this is borne out by Abhishek. He told us to help manage the things on ground and ensure that people’s demands are being met,” Monty told news agency PTI.
