Prime Minister Narendra Modi, on Thursday, October 7, handed over pressure swing adsorption (PSA) oxygen plants to 35 states and UTs of India.
Among these 35 states ad UTs, Amravati was the only district in Maharashtra to get a PSA oxygen plant.
The handing over ceremony was conducted through the virtual mode from AIIMS in Rishikesh, Uttarakhand.
Established under the PM Cares Fund, these oxygen plants were developed by DRDO- a research and development wing of the Union Ministry of Defence.
The oxygen plant in Amravati was installed at the Super Speciality Hospital. Amravati Lok Sabha MP Navneet Rana, Collector Pavneet Kaur, Mayor Chetan Gawande, Dhamangaon Railway MLA Pratap Adsad, Wardha MP Ramdas Tadas and administrative staff of the hospital was prominently present at the event.
“I humbly thank honourable Prime Minister Narendra Modi ji for this live-saving gift that he has given to the citizens of Amravati. I wish that the third wave of COVID-19 should not hit our nation and Amravati district. Even if it does, then this plant will make sure that there is no shortage of oxygen,” MP Navneet Rana told Nation Next.
Mayor Chetan Gawande, who began his tenure as Mayor of Amravati just months before COVID-19 hit India, said, “It is indeed a revolutionary step taken by our PM Shri Narendra Modi ji.”
“A project like this, will surely strengthen medical infrastructure of Amravati. Second wave of COVID-19 resulted in massive devastation, loss of live and humanity. Amravati was heavily affected due to shortage of oxygen. I’m sure that this plant will help in saving lives in the future,” Mayor Gawande told Nation Next.
