Opposition Demand CM Yogi's Resignation After 63 Kids Die At UP Hospital

A statement issued by the office of state chief minister Yogi Adityanath, which has ordered the inquiry, said that all 60 deaths had occurred at the hospital's paediatric ward over a five-day period starting last Monday.

According to hospital records, 7 children died on Friday, 23 died on Thursday, 9 on Wednesday, and 12 on Tuesday, 9 on Monday.

"The shortage of oxygen was not highlighted".

However, before leaving for Gorakhpur, state health minister Siddharth Nath Singh today reiterated that no child died due to a shortage of oxygen.

And just two more days ago, the Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath visited this hospital, he had seen the condition of the hospital, had met the officers, had to go through the movement of the patient and the news of such a big negligence two days after the visit of the Yogi Came in. "Strict action should be taken", tweeted former Uttar Pradesh chief minister Akhilesh Yadav. It seems like the authorities of Gorakhpur are not sacred of anyone. "We will take appropriate action after investigating all aspects". Media reports suggest the reason for the deaths is shortage of oxygen supply, which was cut off by the provider due to non-payment of money to the tune of Rs 66 lakh.

Ashutosh Tandon and Siddharth Nath Singh held meeting with BRD Medical College authorities in Gorakhpur. Despite the fact that hospital had kept away from paying the dues to the company supplying oxygen, Rautela asserts that 50 oxygen cylinders were there at the hospital which is kept as an alternative.


"Last month, I made two visits to the hospital and nobody raised or complained about any problem".

State health minister Siddharthnath Singh, too, dismissed reports. "The probe is on and those responsible for laxity, if any, will not be spared", he added.

"Encephalitis has been there since 1978 and if infants from eastern Uttar Pradesh are suffering from it then it's due to lack of hygiene and open defecation", said the Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister. "We will leave for Gorakhpur soon and after details analysis of the situation will take further decision on the same", Tandon said.

Due to alleged disruption in the supply of liquid oxygen in the hospital, as many as 63 lives have been lost so far.

Encephalitis is a sudden onset inflammation of the brain. "It's a massacre. Is this what 70 years of freedom means for our children?" he said.

Sixteen years ago on August 6, 2001, the Moideen Badusha Mental Home in Erwadi witnessed one of the worst hospital tragedies, where 28 patients in the mental asylum died in an inferno when they failed to escape the wards.
