Sixty children have died at a hospital in India's northern state of Uttar Pradesh this week, prompting local media to blame the fatalities on a lack of oxygen supplies.
Akhilesh Yadav, the former chief minister and Samajwadi Party leader, alleged that the hospital did not conduct port mortem examinations on the dead children.
"We will be getting more liquid oxygen cylinders tonight or tomorrow, and have also cleared the dues of the supplier", Kumar said.
District Magistrate Rajiv Rautela said on Saturday that the deaths of the children in Gorakhpur, Uttar Pradesh state, were due to natural causes. The children died allegedly after oxygen supply was cut, TV reports said.
CM Adityanath instructed Health Minister and Minister of Technical and Medical Education for proper investigation and strict action.
According to Hindustan Times, innocent lives were lost in the GorakhpurBRD Medical college because a private contractor stopped supplying oxygen cylinders over a payment dispute! He said he had ascertained from the doctors that the deaths had not occurred from a lack of oxygen.

Demanding a high-level inquiry into the incident, Mayawati said all possible help should be extended to the bereaved families.
In more embarrassment for the state government, it has come to light that the staff of the Central Oxygen Pipeline Plant had written to the head of the paediatrics department of the hospital warning them of dwindling oxygen stock.
Meanwhile, according to data procured from the BRD hospital, in past five days - from 7 August to 11 August, a total of 60 deaths have occurred in the hospital.
"District magistrate of Gorakhpur has also initiated a magisterial probe to find exact reasons of children death", a government spokesman said.
"Even as 90 jumbo oxygen cylinders were pressed into service to maintain the supply on Friday, the hospital ran out of oxygen around 1.00am", the newspaper report said.
