Uttar Pradesh chief minister, Yogi Adityanath who is being criticized for his administration’s way of tackling BRD hospital tragedy, slammed Rahul Gandhi on Saturday saying that he will not let Gorakhpur to become a ‘picnic spot’ prior to Congress vice-president’s visit.

“Delhi mein baitha koi yuvraj swachhta abhiyan ka mahatv nahi jaanega. Gorakhpur unke liye picnic spot bane uski ijazat nahi deni chahiye. (A Prince sitting in Delhi will never understand the meaning of cleanliness, Gorakhpur becomes a picnic spot for them, we will not permit that),” said Adityanath.

Over 105 infants have lost their lives since 7 August at the state-run BRD hospital. The incident took place allegedly due to disruption of oxygen supply. But the claim was dismissed by the state government.

Post the fatal incident, the hospital principal and the doctor in-charge of the pediatric ward have been suspended. A probe has been ordered by the state government in this regard.

Rahul Gandhi is scheduled to visit the hospital later on Saturday. He will also make stops at homes of four families who have lost their kids in the misfortune. Senior Congress leaders, Ghulam Nabi Azad and Raj Babbar had already visited the hospital just after the tragedy came to the fore.

Attacking previous governments of SP and BSP, Adityanath said administrations in the last 15 years have ruined institutions for selfish motives. “I started the movement against Encephalitis. When it comes to it, prevention is better than cure and it starts with sanitation.”

Adityanath also launched a cleanliness campaign in Andhiyari Bagh and cleaned a street as part of the launch campaign.
