He also maintained that seven deaths (neo-natal ward 3, AES ward 2 and general ward 2) were reported since last midnight, while the remaining 23 deaths (neo-natal 14, AES 3 and general 6) were reported since midnight of August 9-10, reported TOI. What's more? It was a tragedy waiting to happen because Pushpa Sales, the company providing liquid oxygen to the hospital, had threatened to stop the supply due to non-payment of outstanding dues worth nearly 70 lakh. The issue of settlement of the pending money is what costed the lives of little ones.

"The principal told me that the fund for payment of arrears was credited in the medical college's account on August 7". Mr Narendra Modi, Prime Minister is in constant touch with the central and state government and is monitoring the condition in Gorakhpur.

He accused the opposition parties of politicising the issue.

"Deaths due to oxygen shortage would mean a despicable incident", said CM Yogi. Children who were suffering from Encephalitis, a sudden inflammation of the brain were admitted to the hospital for treatment.

Opposition Demand CM Yogi's Resignation After 63 Kids Die At UP Hospital:- Blaming the state government for its sheer failure in providing proper medical facilities to the patients in time, the Congress demanded Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath and Health Minister Siddharth Nath Singh's resignations.

District magistrate Rajeev Rautela said in press conference, "We have been told that BRD witnessed disturbance in liquid oxygen supply since last night as firm withdrew supply owing to non-payment", he said.

Union Minister of State for Health Anupriya Patel and Union Health Secretary C.K. Mishra visited the hospital on Saturday on the directions of the Centre to look into the lapses in the BRD Medical College. Reason behind the drastic incident alleged to be some infections and lack of oxygen supply in the paediatrics ward.

Meanwhile a delegation of congress led by senior leader Ghulam Nabi Azad visited BRD Medical College in Gorakhpur. In the wards, nurses said they were using a combination of piped oxygen and cylinders on Sunday. There should not be any delay in making payments. Some 60 children have died at the hospital in less than a week, prompting an investigation. "This incident took place due to the laxity on the part of the state government".
