May 03 : With the massive spike in positive cases of coronavirus in the country, thousands of people are struggling to get life-saving oxygen as supplies are falling short. Amid such a pathetic situation, the government as well as many hospitals are installing new oxygen plants to keep up with the rising demand for medical oxygen. This annoys actor Kangana Ranaut, who believes that planting more trees could have saved this problem, not knowing that the oxygen we breathe in and medical oxygen are different.
On Saturday, the Delhi High Court had said that hospitals should learn from the present situation where they are facing shortage of medical oxygen and set up plants for themselves. “Oxygen plants are essential. It is irresponsible not to have them,” the bench said.
The Panga actress took to her Twitter handle today and wrote that by building oxygen plants, people will forcefully take oxygen from the environment without compensating it. She ignorantly believes that planting more trees can solve the problem of shortage of medical oxygen. “Everybody is building more and more oxygen plants, getting tons and tons of oxygen cylinders, how are we compensating for all the oxygen that we are forcefully drawing from the environment? It seems we learnt nothing from our mistakes and catastrophes they cause #PlantTrees,” she tweeted.
The actress further added that people who take medical oxygen for their treatment, should give back to nature and work towards improving the environment. At this critical moment, the actress thinks that along with ordering more oxygen, the government should also announce relief for the environment. “Along with announcing more and more oxygen for humans, governments must announce relief for nature also, people who are using this oxygen should also pledge to work on improving the air quality, for how long we going to be miserable pests only taking never giving back to nature?” Kangana tweeted.
The actress went on to another extreme and added that if humans disappear from the earth, it will flourish and people who are not nature lover “are just unnecessary.” “Remember any other life if disappears from earth even microbes or insects it will affect fertility of soil and Mother Earth’s health she will miss them but if humans disappear Earth will only and only flourish, if you aren’t her lover or child you are just unnecessary #PlantTrees.” she tweeted.
Many Twitter users criticised the actress for her ignorance and poured in with sarcastic comments. “Very true ma'am!! Once humans disappear, earth will flourish on it's own. Trees will get planted itself and animals will start watering the plants,” the user wrote, along with clapping emoji.
Earlier, when Kangana tweeted about ways to increase low oxygen levels and solve shortage of oxygen supply by planting more trees, Baazaar director Gauravv K Chawla, made fun of her and wrote: “Such a waste of oxygen!”
