    Sixty three children died in Gorakhpur hospital due to lack of oxygen supply

    In Uttar Pradesh, in a Government hospital of Gorakhpur 63 children died due to lack of oxygen supply for the treatment. Due to irresponsible attitude of the government hospital, life of 63 innocent children passed away very brutally. This happened due to non-payment of money to the oxygen gas supplier company. Mr.Yogi Aditya Nath and BJP party have to take this blame for the severe lapse in its functionary which cost 63 innocent lives. Why leaders of the government more interested to improve their party ratings through various gimmicks rather than improving the living standards of people?

    Very shocking to learn this disturbing news. And I thought that the new CM Yogi Adityanath is different from others and would streamline the administration which had the roots of corruption in erstwhile SP government. But not paying the previous bills which were over due, and the oxygen supplier not making further supplies is purely the administrative matter and for which the CM and the BJP cannot be held responsible. It seems the hospital staff who were against the present government must have done this willfully to get bad name to the new government. Nevertheless Yogi cannot escape from this issue.

    These deaths happened phased wise manner during the course of 5 days is more shocking. After initial recognition of the problem no one cared to rectify the problem which lead to further deaths is more shocking.

    Why did the children die: Ans: Disconnection of oxygen supply by the supplier.

    Why did the supplier discontinue the supply? : Ans: The Government kept the bill pending for three years.

    Which Government kept the bill pending for three years?: Ans: The previous Government of Uttar Pradesh.

    When UP CM has the time for going to Goshaala and feeding the cows, how come he missed this big tragedy and that is happening over the period of time and no action taken. Surely he must resign.

    Partha at #605695, that was too political a response. I am sure that none of the kids who lost their lives nor the parents who lost their dear ones would be able to bear such an explanation. And I thought only politicians, especially those who consider their party above anything else, could say so! Respected Yogi Aditya Nath cannot excuse himself from the responsibility. Let us try to think above party inclinations at least when tragedies of this nature occur.

    Mr. Ganesh: Let me tell you some true facts. I was the Administrative Officer of a Central Government Medical College in New Delhi from 2002 to 2008. Every year during this period, the Head of the Department of Pediatrics of the Medical College had to lead a high-level medical team to Gorakhpur to manage treatment of children from Japanese Encephalitis which caused death of children in large numbers (every year). No newspaper or periodical did bother to take up the issue of large number of death of children at Gorakhpur.

    Similarly, three-four years ago, there was large number of death of children at Malda Medical College of West Bengal. Even then, the media didn't bother to take up the issue of so many death of children.

    Now, the previous Government in Uttar Pradesh kept the bill pending for three years or more at Gorakhpur Medical College. Sixty-three unfortunate children had to pay with their lives for these pending bills. The present Government of Uttar Pradesh (Yogi Adityanath as Chief Minister and Siddharth Nath Singh as Health Minister) are taking necessary action. Prime Minister is himself monitoring the situation. This is no doubt a very unfortunate incident. But that doesn't mean that one can''t even mention the pending bill by the previous Government.

    Caution: Explosive. Handle with care.

    CAG has given a report and warned in early June on this hospital along with four other government run hospitals in UP that several irregularities in procurement of crucial equipment and inadequate infrastructure available in it. The hospital authorities have reported the inadequacies to Mr.Yogi Adityanath who came two days before this grave incident. Most of the authorities are confirming the deaths are due to lack of Oxygen supply and the Collector of Gorakhpur has confirmed it according to the press report. Meanwhile the government has suspended college hospital Principal Rajeev Mishra for delay in releasing payment to the Oxygen supply company. At present the death toll has risen to 79. A deep condolence to all those children who lost their lives and pray to God to give strength to the parents to bear this sad memory in their life.

    A very tragic incident. This type of faults should be avoided and we should see that no innocent will suffer. I certainly feel that this is the minimum responsibility of the District Medical Officer to see that life saving medicines and drugs are always available for emergencies. They has to see that funds will be made available to these important items, even though they are not able to pay salaries. In private organisations the raw material procurement will be continued even though the salaries are delayed by some time. Because raw material stocks are important to keep their organisations productive. Similarly hospitals should give more importance to these life saving items stocks even though the payment to doctors may get delayed for some time.
    We should think beyond our affiliations or likings to political parties in these situations. I don't think for each and every lapse CM can be targeted. Now after this incident CM has to take action on the concerned and should see that these things will not repeat.
