SINCE THE TIME YOGI ADITYANATH GOVERNMENT HAS TAKEN OVER IN THE UTTAR PRADESH, IT HAS ALWAYS BEEN IN THE MEDIA FOR DOING MANY REFORMS. BUT, THIS RECENT NEWS OF THE 63 INFANTS GETTING KILLED IN GORAKHPUR MEDICAL COLLEGE HOSPITAL, DUE TO THE LACK OF AN OXYGEN, HAS AMOUNTED INTO RAISING THE CONCERNS OVER THE EXISTENCE OF THE GOVERNMENT IN THE STATE.
According to the reports, more than 63 infants have been killed in the state run Baba Raghav Das Medical College in Gorakhpur, Uttar Pradesh but the possibility of raising the numbers higher cannot be ruled out, said the sources.
The reports also claim that the deaths of more than 60 children took place in the medical college within just a weeks time and out of the 63 half of it have died during the last 48 hours time, following the hospital ran out of the oxygen supply.
Following the death of infants, the ruling government headed by Yogi Adityanath have come under heavy criticism from the opposition and media but, it has denied the reports of death caused due to the shortage of oxygen.
Meanwhile, the state health minister Siddharth Nath Singh went one more step ahead and claimed that the children died of encephalitis and not due to the lack of oxygen. According to the Gorakhpur District Magistrate Rajeev Rautela, there are only seven deaths have taken place at the BRD Medical College, and all of them are due to different medical reasons. “No death in BRD Medical College, Gorakhpur, has taken place due to a shortage of oxygen supply. Only seven deaths have taken place at the BRD Medical College today and these were due to different medical reasons,” he said.
While the Yogi administration is taking all the efforts to save their skin in this mass killing case, another shocking detail came out according to which the hospital authorities seem to have admitted that the company that was supplying the oxygen to the hospital had stopped their supplies on the accounts of the long pending bills. “Supply of liquid oxygen was disrupted yesterday due to pending payment,” Rautela told ANI.
Meanwhile, according to the reports, the chief minister Yogi Adityanath had directed the state health minister Siddharth Nath Singh and Medical education minister Ashutosh Tandon to visit BRD Medical College and take stock of the situation there.
There is no doubt that the opposition is going to take complete advantage of the situation and target the government and it is bound to happen as the Yogi government has completely failed. But will that solve the problem that persists in the state at the moment? Will the blame game able to bring the children back to their parents? or will the compensation suffice their losses? We are living in the country where politicians make false promises and show the dreams that they are not capable of fulfilling.
