Netizens are having a field day poking fun at Uttar Pradesh’s Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath. To ‘solve’ the oxygen shortage problem in Uttar Pradesh, Yogi directed officials to coordinate with premier tech institutes like IIT-Kanpur to explore the possibility of converting nitrogen to oxygen.
“The CM on Saturday said, the government should explore all possibilities of raising oxygen supply and look for alternatives. Officials should get in touch with experts from IIT Kanpur and other technical institutes and look at the possibility of converting nitrogen to oxygen,” said a government spokesperson.
The government, which is currently supplying 631 tons of oxygen to hospitals across the State, is sourcing it mostly from Gujarat, West Bengal and Odisha.
However, Yogi’s demand to explore possibility of converting nitrogen into oxygen hasn’t gone down well with netizens though as they took to Twitter to share their views on the statement released by the government spokesperson.
