Congress demands CM Yogi resignation over death of Kids in UP

Gorakhpur tragedy Private chemical company supplies oxygen cylinders out of humanityMore

District Magistrate Rajiv Rautela said on Saturday the deaths of the children being treated for different ailments at the Baba Raghav Das Medical College Hospital in Gorakhpur city in Uttar Pradesh state were due to natural causes. Sources said the supply of oxygen to the hospital was stopped on Thursday night due to non-payment of dues to the firm engaged in supplying oxygen to the hospital. The issue of settlement of the pending money is what costed the lives of little ones. An operator in the oxygen supply department told Scroll.in that the liquid oxygen supply to the hospital has been restored.

The two ministers, before leaving for Gorakhpur, met Adityanath, who asked them "not to spare any one found guilty".

The opposition parties, however, continued their attack on Adityanath. The Chief Minister Yogi had visited the hospital, on August 9.

On this note, Union Health Minister JP Nadda has directed Patel to visit Gorakhpur's BRD Medical College to look into the incident that occurred due to alleged disruption in the supply of liquid oxygen in the hospital. "The Hindu nationalist politician informed everyone that from 1996 he is fighting against encephalitis, adding", Will no more allow children to die as have seen a lot of children become a victim of encephalitis".

But he too denied the lack of oxygen as the cause of death of 23 children, who died on the very same day.

BRD medical hospital is under chief minister Yogi Adityanath's.


"This happened due to state government's carelessness", Azad told media persons outside the hospital.

This incident has taken the total number of children's deaths in the district to 60 in the last five days.

Confirming the resignation of Mishra from the post of the BRD medical college principal, UP Health Minister Sidharth Nath Singh said, "Yes, he has resigned".

Meanwhile, the Congress on Sunday noted that GorakhpurHospital tragedy clearly reflects the failure of the state government and demanded that Yogi Adityanath immediately resign as Chief Minister.

"Even as 90 jumbo oxygen cylinders were pressed into service to maintain the supply on Friday, the hospital ran out of oxygen around 1.00am", it said.

But according to PTI, a Union home ministry statement that quoted the Gorakhpur police superintendent said 21 children died because of shortage of oxygen.
