Oxygen Supply 'Disrupted': 63 Children Dead In UP

Taking strong view of death of over 60 children in the BRD Medical College in Gorakhpur, the UP government on Saturday suspended the principal with immediate effect for negligence on his part. Reason behind most of the death cases was due to Japanese Encephalitis (JE) and Acute Encephalitis Syndrome (AES).

The fireband Hindu priest, who won India's largest state in a landslide in March, toured the hospital wards Sunday in his signature saffron robes and a blue medical mask and cap.

Tewari said the hospital administration, the oxygen supplier and the district administration, must be held guilty and charged for culpable homicide.

A private contractor stopped supplying oxygen to the hospital over a past-due bill, district magistrate Rajeev Rautela said.

Reacting to the incident, Congress President Sonia Gnadhi said " I am pained beyond words by the tragic deaths of 30 children in Gorakhpur. On Saturday, I sent the health minister and the medical education minister.

Spending on public health in India, relative to the country's GDP, is among the lowest in the world.

The UP CM and Gorakhpur MLA said, "Encephalitis has been there since 1978 and if infants from eastern Uttar Pradesh are suffering from it then it's due to lack of hygiene and open defecation".

Health Minister Siddharth Nath Singh and Minister for Medical Education Ashutosh Tandon will visit Gorakhpur after meeting the Chief Minister here.

Maurya further maintained that the Uttar Pradesh Government always has medical and health facilities on its priority list, adding that proper investigation has been initiated in the mishap. "The ongoing probe would reveal why the supply was disrupted", Singh said, while addressing reporters.

"The chief minister, health minister and the health secretary must immediately resign and doctors should not be blamed for this". And "only" seven children have died today. Government sources said he failed to take prompt action even though those in charge of oxygen supply wrote a letter on Thursday, warning about the impending crisis.

Praveen Modi, owner of Pushpa Sales company, which used to supply oxygen to the BRD Medical College, categorically denied that it had the tender to do so. He said he had announced a magisterial probe into the deaths.But, as per hospital sources unwilling to be named, there was a sudden drop in the oxygen supply pressure around 8pm on Thursday, and the situation worsened by 11.30pm same day.
