Is government waiting for another ‘Gorakhpur scare’ in Agra
Agra: “Mistake is the best teacher” but this quote seems irrelevant for the ruling Uttar Pradesh government.
After a shocking case in the state-run Baba Raghav Das Medical College in Uttar Pradesh's Gorakhpur, another city of UP seems to be in the lines of the same.
Just like Baba Raghav Das Medical, SN College of Agra is facing a shortage of liquid oxygen and that due to non-payment of Rs 37 lakh for three months. At any moment, the supply of oxygen can be stopped.
Hospital uses about 150 oxygen cylinders worth Rs 40,000 on daily basis.
SN College administration has, however, demanded budget from state government for the payment
It may be mentioned here that at least 30 children died in the state-run Baba Raghav Das Medical College in Uttar Pradesh’s Gorakhpur, the parliamentary constituency of Uttar Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath, in the last two days, on Friday. The government, however, said that only seven had died and a probe has been ordered.
