Uttar Pradesh Health Minister Siddharth Nath Singh on Saturday reiterated that deaths of children in Gorakhpur's BRD college hospital were not caused due to disruption in oxygen supply but medical reasons.

A private contractor stopped supplying oxygen to the hospital over a past-due bill, district magistrate Rajeev Rautela said. The issue of settlement of the pending money is what costed the lives of little ones. Hospital tried to supply the oxygen by its recently installed liquid oxygen plant, but as the capacity of the plant was low itself, no substantial supply could be given.

The former UP Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav hit out at Yogi government over Gorakhpur Hospital Tragedy and have demanded immediate action against the culprits.

Adityanath also urged media to put forward the correct figure of deaths as it is very sensitive matter.

"Considering he [Adityanath] is both the MP and the chief minister, he must take moral responsibility and step down, and so should the health minister [Siddharth Nath Singh]", Congress leader Manish Tewari told ANI.

Chief minister Yogi Adityanath, who represented the eastern UP city in Parliament for decades, ordered an investigation by the state chief secretary into the role of the hospital's sole oxygen vendor who cut off supplies over dues. UP Health Minister Siddharth Singh said, "People responsible for this will not be spared. But there was existing alternative arrangement of 50 oxygen cylinders which was being used, so there was no shortage of oxygen", he said.

He added that the deaths "could be natural, as many patients admitted at the hospital are serious".

Midst all the blame game, it is the families of the children who lost their lives that are suffering.

Two days back, UP CM Yogi Adityanath had visited the hospital that falls under his Lok Sabha constituency.

Indian news outlets are reporting that over two dozen children have died in a government-run hospital in northern India.

He said that 17 children had died in the neo-natal ward, five in the ward meant of patients suffering from acute encephalitis syndrome and eight in the general ward.

The deaths occurred due to various reasons including infections arising out of encephalitis.

Gorakhpur Hospital Tragedy: Nation trembles as around 63 children had their last breath over 6 days at Baba Raghav Das Medical College hospital in Gorakhpur.

Chief Medical Superintendent Dr R.S. Shukla said on Friday at least 10 of the children at BRD Medical College, the largest in Gorakhpur, had died because of encephalitis.
