Former Uttar Pradesh chief minister Akhilesh Yadav on Monday visited the family of victims who died in Gorakhpur's Baba Raghav Das Medical College, and said that the state government must reveal the real reason behind the tragedy as the current investigation can not be trusted. Who is responsible? Hospital or Suppliers?

However, the issue of the unpaid bills for oxygen supply has become a flashpoint in relations between the hospital and the state government.

"In the past three days - from August 12 to August 14 - six encephalitis patients, mostly children have died".

Gorakhpur's police commissioner Anil Kumar told AFP on Sunday that 11 more children had died at the hospital on Saturday. On August 11, the death toll had risen to 60.

Former Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister and Samajwadi Party president Akhilesh Yadav on Monday visited families of BRD hospital tragedy victims in Belwar village of Gorakhpur.

The incident happened in Gorakhpur, which was the Lok Sabha constituency of CM Adityanath from 1998 until August 5, when he resigned. However, the state government has since changed its narrative, now producing various natural reasons for the deaths like acute encephalitis syndrome and claiming that the number of those who died isn't outside the "normal".

On Mr. Adityanath's instructions, Health Minister Sidharthnath Singh and Mr. Tandon left for Gorakhpur.

Infections and possible disruption of oxygen supply have been blamed for the deaths. Due to the shortage of oxygen, my daughter died. He made the remarks while addressing a press conference along with Union Health Minister JP Nadda, who also visited the hospital. Following these accusations, authorities have sacked Kafeel whereas probe into matter is underway. The resident doctors associ-ation at AIIMS-Delhi has written an open letter condemning Khan's removal and has also accused the UP government of "gross neglect of public health".

Calling every incident an eye-opener, Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath on Tuesday sought to blame the deaths of over 60 children in Gorakhpur on encephalitis. "I had attached reminders from the Lucknow-based vendor in my letters", Mishra was quoted by Times of India as saying.

Referencing India's 70th anniversary of its independence from England, Satyarthi castigated the government: "Is this what 70 years of freedom means for our children?"
