35 children die in north Indian hospital in 3 days

Union minister of state (health) Anupriya Patel and secretary (health) C.K.Mishra rushed to the state-run Baba Raghav Das (BRD) Medical College inUttar Pradesh's Gorakhpur on Saturday where at least 30 children died due to alleged discontinuation of oxygen supply by a private contractor due to non payment of dues. "This is an example of gross criminal negligence of the BJP government", BSP chief Mayawati said in a release.

"Total 30 deaths in last 48 hours". This prompted the government to say on Twitter that "No patient has died at the BRD medical college due to shortage of oxygen supplies".

Health Minister of the local government Sidharth Nath Singh said in a statement that 60 children have died in the hospital since August 7 due to different diseases but not because of lack of oxygen cylinders.

It is being said that oxygen supply was disrupted by the provider because of non-payment of dues worth Rs. 69 lakhs despite several reminders.

Mayawati told ANI, "I condemn BJP for the extremely painful incident in Gorakhpur?s Baba Raghav Das Medical College (BRD) hospital, where as many as 64 lives have been lost so far due to alleged disruption in the supply of liquid oxygen in the hospital".

A statement issued by the state Information Department late evening categorically denied reports shown by "some TV channels as misleading". He has rushed two top ministers, including health minister Sidharth Nath Singh to Gorakhpur.

Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath has ordered a probe into the case and has assured strict action against the guilty.

District magistrate Rajeev Rautela admitted to the deaths, but said most were due to encephalitis.

Congress President Sonia Gandhi and Vice President Rahul Gandhi expressed deep grief over these deaths. "The government needs to tackle it with a rigorous campaign", said R. N. Singh, a medical doctor who has been leading the fight against the disease in Gorakhpur district. But hospital sources inform that hospital administration was aware of oxygen shortage, but it never paid any attention to it.

State Medical Education Minister Ashutosh Tandon claimed that the deaths of children was not due to oxygen supply, supporting which he also released a list that claimed that most of the children died due to kidney failure and were premature. She also called upon the state Congress workers to provide relief to the families of victims. He said that as the state government is responsible for the incident, compensation of Rs 20 lakh must be given to family of each child.
