Prime Minister Narendra Modi is monitoring situation in the Gorakhpur hospital and is in constant touch with the Central and state government officials.
As many as 63 children have died since the past six days as the oxygen supply to the company was allegedly cut by the supplier — Pushpa Private Limited.
The cases led to outrage in the country.
Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath said in a tweet, “Prime Minister Narendra Modi sought information about the Gorakhpur incident.
On his directives, Union Health minister JP Nadda and MoS Anupriya Patel also sought information of the incident.”
Samajwadi Party (SP) and Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) termed the death of infants as an outcome of the state government’s “gross criminal negligence” and demanded a high-level inquiry into the incident.
