Gadkari inaugurates oxygen plant worth ₹5 crore that can fill nearly 700 jumbo cylinders in a day | Amravati

Union Minister of Road and Transport Nitin Gadkari, on Sunday, October 24, inaugurated a PSA oxygen plant at Shivaji Shikshan Sansthan’s (SSS) Dr Punjabrao Deshmukh Medical College and Hospital, Amravati (PDMC).
The oxygen plant is worth around ₹5 crore and has a capacity of filling 600-700 jumbo oxygen cylinders in a day.
This particular plant doesn’t require liquid oxygen. It makes oxygen from air by separating nitrogen instead. The plant was granted to PDMC Amravati by Nitin Gadkari under a CSR activity through Nagpur’s Maitree Parivar Sansthan (MPS).
MPS is a non-profit organisation based in Nagpur working for the underprivileged section of society.
The plant was inaugurated by Nitin Gadkari on PDMC premises in a public ceremony.
At the event, PDMC Dean Dr AT Deshmukh told Nation Next, This is a similar plant like the one that is stationed at Super Speciality Hospital, which was given under PM Cares Fund. The entire mechanism of the two is same, just the capacity of the one at PDMC is much more. This entire plant is funded to us under CSR activity. We are only in charge of the maintenance.
This is the biggest oxygen plant in Amravati district. I can surely say that now, Amravati won’t fall short on oxygen as it did during second wave, Dr Deshmukh added.
Speaking at the event, Nitin Gadkari remembered the horrific incidents of the first and second wave of COVID-19.
He said, I myself have lost many loved and dear ones in this pandemic. From personal experiences, I can say that we should now give highest priority to health services.
Stressing upon the concept of make-in-India? and made-in-India, he said, Our hospitals should be of international standards. We can make medical equipment in India. Need makes you creative. We had started making ventilators, PPE kits and other medical resources required. We should plan in advance now. If the third wave comes, we better be prepared. No one should die due to shortage of oxygen.
We should think for the best and prepare for the worst, he added.
Amravati Guardian Minister Adv Yashomati Thakur, Mayor Chetan Gawande, MP Navneet Rana, MLA Sulbha Khodke, MLC Pravin Pote, members of the SSS, members of PDMC, leaders, staff and others witnessed the inauguration.

An elderly couple was mauled by a tiger in Chor Bawali on January 25 while on their way from Narsinghpur (Madhya Pradesh) to Nagpur on January 25. The couple was accompanied by their 25-year-old son in a car. Following the tiger attack, the couple was admitted to Kingsway Hospital in Nagpur.

While on their way to Nagpur, the family of three stopped near Chor Bawali for passing urine. When the 58-year-old woman got out of the car, the tiger, which was probably wounded by a previous vehicular assault, caught hold of the woman’s hand and bit her thumb. When the woman’s husband stepped out of the car to help his wife, the tiger attacked him as well and injured his right leg. A terrfied son started throwing stones at the tiger, who eventually ran away.

The couple was given first aid by the bystanders before being driven to Nagpur by the son to Kingsway hospital. Speaking to Nation Next, treating surgeon Dr Prakash Jain informed that the family was terrified when it arrived at the hospital. Dr Jain said: “The couple is now stable. Tiger mauling is always serious. The couple was lucky to have sustained minor injuries in the incident.”

The onset of the COVID-19 pandemic has made terms like ‘oximeter,’ ‘saturation level,’ ‘quarantine,’ and ‘N95’ a part of our daily vocabulary. Another thing, which has gained immense popularity over the last two years is the paracetamol tablet ‘Dolo 650,’ which has been prescribed by doctors during 1st, 2rd and now the 3rd wave of the pandemic in India.

The popularity of tablet, which is manufactured by Micro labs, has led several to several memes on the internet. Dilip Surana, Chairman and Managing Director of Micro Labs, expressed his surprise at the unexpected popularity of the drug in an interview with Money Control. He said: It has always been a popular brand among doctors across India. However, we did not expect the kind of popularity that Dolo-650 gained recently because we have never advertised the tablet directly to the public.

Here are some of the hilarious ‘Dolo 650’ memes doing rounds on the internet:
