Lucknow: Almost a year after the deaths of scores of infants were reported from the BRD Medical College in Gorakhpur, Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath has said the incident may have been blown out of proportion due to the institute’s “internal politics”.

Meanwhile, latching on to Adityanath’s statement, opposition Congress on Sunday termed it as a move by the UP chief minister to hide his shortcomings. Adityanath, who has represented Gorakhpur in Lok Sabha five times, said this was not enough and he decided to visit the hospital the very next day.

 

“I asked people there what actually the matter was, and was told there was nothing as such...And if the deaths were due to the lack of oxygen, then children put on the ventilators would have been the first ones to die. I said there must definitely be something. From where were the figures coming? Then it emerged that it was internal politics,” the UP chief minister said. Adityanath said that after the incident, doctors at the medical college were not keen on seeing patients worrying that it may become an issue.
