Can I remove double quotes from keys in this json but not the values?

I have the following json string:

'{"start_time": {"_gte": "2021-10-10 19:00:00"}, "end_time": {"_gte": "2021-10-10 19:30:00"}}'

and I need to get:

'{start_time: {_gte: "2021-10-10 19:00:00"}, end_time: {_gte: "2021-10-10 19:30:00"}}'

Is this possible?

    I guess something like this should work:

    import json
    from typing import List, Tuple, Any
    string = '{"start_time": {"_gte": "2021-10-10 19:00:00"}, "end_time": {"_gte": "2021-10-10 19:30:00"}}'
    class MyDict(dict):
        def __repr__(self):
            return '{' + ', '.join([f'{k}: {v!r}' for k, v in self.items()]) + '}'
    def hook_fn(value: List[Tuple[str, Any]]):
        return MyDict(value)
    print(json.loads(string, object_pairs_hook=hook_fn))

    it prints:

    {start_time: {_gte: '2021-10-10 19:00:00'}, end_time: {_gte: '2021-10-10 19:30:00'}}
