Gorakhpur: Death toll rises to 63, Cong questions PM’s silence

Congress spokesperson Manish Tiwari demanded strict action against those responsible for the deaths, allegedly due to the shortage of supply of liquid oxygen, at BRD Medical College in Uttar Pradesh.

“There are clearly two dimensions to it, that of criminal culpability of all those who are responsible — the hospital administration, the oxygen supplier and the district administration which is supposed to exercise superintendence over the hospital, and the other is the moral responsibility of the chief minister.”

“While all those responsible must be charged with criminal culpability accounting to murder,…there is a moral dimension which the chief minister of Uttar Pradesh and his health minister must take responsibility for and resign immediately,” Tiwari said.
