Gorakhpur Tragedy: Here are 10 latest development of horrific catastrophe

Yogi Adityanath

Just a handful of days after a deadly tragedy in a Gorakhpur hospital, Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath has asked the state police to celebrate Janmashtami in a grand way.

Both the Uttar Pradesh government and the centre said officials are investigating the matter even as political opposition has sought to blame the Bhartiya Janata Party for the sorry affairs of the hospital.

The Supreme Court on Monday rejected a plea for taking suo motu cognizance of the deaths of infants in Gorakhpur hospital and institute a Special Investigation Team probe.

On the orders of Chief Minister Yogi Aadityanath, Health minister Sidharth Narayan Singh and Medical education minister Ashutosh Tandon have rushed to Gorakhpur to take stock of the situation and take remedial measures.

Gorakhpur hospital deaths: Last week more than 60 children died at Gorakhpur's BRD Medical College.

Referring to the probe ordered by the Uttar Pradesh government, the Congress leader wondered, "How can an accused probe allegations against himself?" "Appropriate action will be taken keeping these points in mind and a probe will be done", he said.

Stating that Prime Minister Narendra Modi is deeply concerned and has offered complete support, Adityanath said that nobody can be more sensitive than him in the regard.

Maken added that the chief minister and the health minister have repeatedly maintained that "such accidents happen every year" and there has been no negligence on the part of the state government. The Post obtained documents showing the hospital had been receiving letters regarding unpaid bills for six months, and that almost $90,000 was owed to a medical supply company. It now transpires that there were nine deaths of children in the hospital that day but he was not told of it.

Firing salvos at the BJP-led government in the state, the Congress leader asked, "Why was no case registered against the hospital officials and why has not the Health Minister been sacked yet?"

Rautela said that the hospital owed 6.8 million rupees (£81,900) to the company, but added that it had adequate numbers of oxygen cylinders.

However, the Uttar Pradesh government denied the charge, saying alternative arrangements for oxygen supply were immediately made and patients died due to other medical reasons.

Talking to media persons Mr Nadda announced that a regional medical research Centre will be established at Gorakhpur.
