Gorakhpur tragedy: BSP demands resignation of CM Yogi Adityanath

Sources claim that there was some problem in the oxygen supply line on the intervening night of Thursday and Friday, creating a scare in the hospital.

Meanwhile, the local government denied deaths of the children due to lack of oxygen cylinders in the hospital.

Multiple local media reports said numerous children died after the company which was supplying liquid oxygen stopped the service, apparently over non-payment of dues. "The administration did not heed to the notice, because of which the whole incident happened".

Vaibhav Maheshwari, state spokesman of AAP told IANS, "it was a matter of shame that the Chief Minister was mum on such a serious issue and that the state government was trying to defuse facts".

On Friday state health minister Siddharth Nath Singh said,"What media has reported it does not appear same to us".

Azad asserted that the Uttar Pradesh Government should apologise to the whole nation in regard to the same.

Leaders want Adityanath to resign on moral grounds for Gorakhpur children's deaths. Considering, he is both the MP and CM, he must take moral responsibility and should resign. The health minister and the health secretary must immediately tender resignation.

Terming the incident as unfortunate, he has held responsible the state government for it. It is important to mention that as per the agreement between hospital and supplier only 10 lakhs of due amount is permitted. "Our boss and the other officials, who are now in charge of BRD, are in BRD, talking to them".

District Magistrate Rajiv Routale said in the last two days, 17 children died in Neo Natal Ward, whereas in acute encephalitis syndrome i.e. five in AES ward and eight children died in General Ward.

District magistrate Rajeev Rautela said an inquiry committee has been set up to ascertain the exact cause of the deaths and it has been asked to submit its report by Saturday evening.

As per the report obtained from BRD hospital, there has been a sudden spike of deaths of patients since August 7 listed under NICU (neonatal intensive care unit), AES, non-AES, reports English daily The Indian Express.
