The Tamil Nadu government has passed a resolution to operate the Sterlite Copper plant in Thoothukudi for four months to augment the state's oxygen production.

At an all-party meeting led by Chief Minister Edappadi Palaniswami, different political leaders came together to decide on the matter.

Eight parties at the meeting, including the AIADMK, DMK, Congress, BJP, PMK and Left parties endorsed the reopening of the plant for oxygen production. Vedanta Private Limited, the parent company of Sterlite Copper, had written to the Union government, the state government and the Supreme Court last week offering its services to produce oxygen amid the shortage in the country. The proposal, however, led to a debate as the plant had been shut down in 2018 for violating environmental norms.
