Gorakhpur hospital tragedy: BJP leader Sakshi Maharaj says oxygen supply was cut over non-payment of dues
BJP MP Sakshi Maharaj Saturday said 30 infants died in a Gorakhpur hospital because oxygen supply was cut off over non-payment of dues
Unnao (Uttar Pradesh): BJP MP Sakshi Maharaj Saturday said 30 infants died in a Gorakhpur hospital because oxygen supply was cut off over non-payment of dues.
He demanded stringent action against those responsible for the tragedy in Baba Raghav Das Medical College Hospital, where 30 children are believed to have died in 48 hours.
"The deaths which took place in a Gorakhpur hospital were very saddening. The person, who switched off the oxygen supply on the pretext of non-payment of dues, was responsible for the incident," the MP from Unnao told reporters.
Denying media reports that he had termed the incident as a "massacre" (narsanhar), Sakshi Maharaj said, "I have never said so. I said the deaths were not natural and steps should be taken to ensure that such incidents are not repeated in the future."
