UP Medical Education Minister Ashutosh Tondon
Lucknow/Gorakhpur: The Uttar Pradeshgovernment has warned stringent action against those responsible for the series of deaths of children at the Baba Raghav Das Medical College and Hospital in Gorakhpur over the last few days.
On reports that oxygen shortage had caused the deaths, he said if it were the case, it would have been a "heinous act". The issue of settlement of the pending money is what costed the lives of little ones.
On August 9, a day before the oxygen supply was disrupted, Adityanath had visited the hospital.
The Congress has also demanded the resignation of the chief minister.
The chief minister hit out at the opposition for politicising the death of children, and accused Congress leaders of being insensitive about the deaths.
Deputy chief minister Keshav Prasad Maurya said that stringent action would be taken against those found guilty.
