  1. I think a good response to this would be a crowdfunding initiative from people across randia and other forums and money should then be given to the hospital to setup a children specific care ward.

    This shouldn’t be repeated. Feeling really sick at the loss of lives.

  2. Everyone is blaming the CM here, but can not understand how a CM is responsible for negligence of the officials.

    There are processes in place, and it is expected that everyone follows the process. A CM is like a CEO. He is not responsible for fraud committed by an individual who is not placed directly under him and who did not follow proper procedures.

    It is an unfortunate incident and the guilty should be charged with strict punishment to set an example for other (and I hope human rights people do not start procession for their support).

    Remember Bhopal Gas leak, it was fault of Union Carbide and their negligence. So we can not blame Arjun Singh for the tragedy. But we sure can blame him for letting Anderson escape and not giving justice to people of his state.

    Rather than jumping on blaming one person for mismanagement of others, I would wait for investigation and report. What I understood, he visited the hospital few days ago and nobody raised the issue with him. Had he been told that the supply would be cut if dues are not paid, I am sure he would have instructed it to be issued without delay. He did his job of visiting the hospital and trying to listen to people.

    I would blame him if he does not deliver justice to the people or same incident happens again.

  3. List of links and reporting on the tragedy (OP, would be nice if you had done this in the main post!). Chronological, as far as I can make it.

    http://www.hindustantimes.com/india-news/gorakhpur-hospital-deaths-8-unanswered-questions/story-xbkarc7B5rW1oJ7iTEuFwJ.html

  4. The mask created by Modi in the name of development is falling apart. This is a mass murder of children. Yogi is and was not selected for development agenda. It’s time people understood this.

  5. The most shameful part of all this is that the horse trading in Rajya Sabha Elections would have easily seen an exchange of an amount 10 times more than the 72 lakhs that were left unpaid to the oxygen supplying company. Such are the priorities in Indian politics.

  6. Everyone will forget this in a few days. The next election will come. Madharchod will again win asking votes on the basis of religion, caste and patriotism.

    Few months down the road, something like this will happen again. People will get sad. Call them names. Then forget. Then election.

  7. One of my friends father was the CMO(Chief Medical Officer) of Gorakhpur. I don’t know if he is now or not. His father owns a private hospital, quite big, in the same area, and he almost never went to his office. Incompetent assholes like these are more to blame than that madharchod yogi.

  8. The most unfortunate thing is that, people are playing politics on the expense of this unfortunate issue instead of finding solutions and help those who suffered. Everyone should come together and work together instead of blame game.

  9. I am so sad now that I don’t even know what to say. These were kids. I can’t even imagine how their mothers and fathers are feeling. Moreover, stupid responses from Yogi and no response from Modi is boiling my blood. Such a shame.

  10. Well before blaming government we should all blame ourselves, why because our governments ( be it Congress or Bjp) know that they can get away with anything. Law is just for poor, rules and regulations can be broken you just need money, right connections and right caste or religion. We deserve the government we get, good or bad we deserve it. The number of criminals in our parliament bares our insensitivity to what democracy stands for, in India democracy is rule of opinion over knowledge. Ruling parties will change PM will change but unless our public change these incidents will happen in one shape or another.

  11. I am still waiting for the facts to come out. There have been conflicting reports from bjp members themselves about the cause. The government would do well do man up and own up the shit that has come up and caused this tragedy. Let the facts come out, fix accountability on the right people and give them hell with an entire nation’s fury!

  12. I watched YogiJi’s press conference today. He seemed really annoyed when media took him on. Soon started bashing them, “Aap log apane hisab se kuch bhi sankhya mat dikhaiye, hum se puch kar sahi number dikhaiye (don’t show any number by yourself, rather ask us)”

    Instead of media bashing, show some remorse you fucking degenerate.

  13. Ab Shri Yogiji bol rahe hain ki open defecation ki vajah se ye hua. Theek hai, agar is ko maan bhi lein toh open defecation ke liye kya Pakistan/ISI/Muslims/Mughals/Congress zimmedaar hain?

  14. BC I’m so pissed today I downed 5 Strong (8%) beers after work (Im 5 feet 7 inches and 75 kgs).
    (Advocates in India work 60 hours a week). Never felt so depressed since May 2014. Feeling like bashing some BJP skills in in the name of Humanism Raksha like their Goraksha. To hell with Due Process Of Law.

  15. We only spend 1.4 pcent of our GDP on health, lower than even Sub-Saharan countries, this results in us having one of the highest out of pocket private health expenditures (62pcent) in the world.

    Until these numbers at the top don’t improve, Nothing will change.

  16. I just don’t understand what kind of madarchods these BJP shithead’s are, blame this blame that. Assholes its you who are running the state, how can you possibly blame administrators for such a big tragedy

  17. How seriously govt have considered health care historically in India. Now when we have a govt whose aim is to build temple. They will be blaming one another but we need to introspect about priority as a nation. It is a case where there has been gross negligence by Gorkhpur’s 5 time MP and UP CM Yogi Adityanath. After repeated request for payments of something as essential as oxygen why they were not paid. My deepest condolences to family of those 64 children who lost their life due to corrupt medical staffs in govt run hospital. It’s a really painful incident.

  18. Everyone involved in this mess should be punished. This is a murder and not incompetence, everyone in the hospital knew what will happen when oxygen is cut – they should have atleast moved patients to other hospitals.

  19. Newspaper reports show that at least three letters to medical authorities warned of oxygen supply disruption.

    What would you expect when your politics hinges in building kabrstan and shamshan!!!?

  20. This is what happens when the government prioritises cows over humans. Forget the fact that the cylinder suppliers were not paid, hospital staff remained unpaid for years. This was murder pure and simple, and the BJP has blood on their hands, even when YogiJI visited the very same hospital last Wednesday to inaugurate an ICU ward.

  21. Doctor here. Most patients who died had encephalitis or were newborns. Both of those group of kids were dependent on oxygen for survival as they probably had limited ability to breathe. So ENCEPHALITIS IS NOT THE DIRECT CAUSE OF DEATH even though most who died had encephalitis. The direct cause of death was lack of oxygen. So this is clearly medical negligence
