As is being alleged, disruption of oxygen supply in the paediatrics ward led to the tragic mishap where several mother's witnessed the last breath of their children.
Reports also say that supply was stopped by Pushpa Sales, the firm responsible for supplying oxygen after the hospital failed to clear dues of Rs 68 lakhs. The issue of settlement of the pending money is what costed the lives of little ones. CM said that the Union Minister's Minister, Anupriya Patel will go to Gorakhpur on Sunday.
The chief minister hit out at the opposition for politicising the death of children, and accused Congress leaders of being insensitive about the deaths.
Confirming the resignation of Mishra from the post of the BRD medical college principal, UP Health Minister Sidharth Nath Singh said, "Yes, he has resigned". Abhineet Kumar Shukla, the baby's relative, said that on 8 August too, there was a low oxygen supply situation at the NICU ward adding that a monitor that they were told was an "Oxygen level monitor", was beeping with the red sign which indicated low oxygen.
Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath's Lok Sabha constituency of Gorakhpur has seen at least 114 deaths due to Acute Encephalitis Syndrome (AES) this year alone.
"What is unfortunate is that the tragedy happened two days after the chief minister's visit to the hospital", the Congress leader said demanding a public apology from the chief minister.
Prashant Trivedi, the state's top health official, admitted there has been a problem in the pipeline which supplied oxygen.
Rajeev Rautela, the district magistrate, said that the deaths seem to be due to lack of oxygen supply but at present, the administration has denied the statement.
An inquiry committee has been set up to ascertain the exact causes of the deaths and it has been asked to submit its report by tomorrow evening. Azad further said, during the time of its ruling, the Congress party had spent crores rupees to provide medical facilities in the hospital. Of these, 129 childrenhad died, said Satish Chandra, a hospital spokesman. "Only seven deaths have taken place at the BRD Medical College today and these were due to different medical reasons".
According to data procurred from the BRD hospital, in past five days - from August 7 to August 11, a total of 64 deaths have occurred in the hospital.
