Healthcare Statistics Argue: Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister and Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Yogi Adityanath on Wednesday hit back at Communist Party of India(CPM) for holding him responsible for deaths of infants in his home state.“Kerala must learn how to run hospitals from Uttar Pradesh,” Yogi Adityanath said on Wednesday, 4 October. The UP CM made the comments during his visit to Kerala to rally support for BJP’s ‘Jan Raksha Yatra’ to protest the killings of RSS workers in the state.With deaths of over 70 children at a Gorakhpur hospital still fresh in public memory, Adityanath advised the CPI (M)-led Kerala government to learn from the example of Uttar Pradesh on checking the spread of dengue and chikungunya, when over 300 people have died of dengue in Kerala.“While Uttar Pardesh effectively checked the menace of dengue and chikungunya, the Left party and its government have failed in providing basic necessities to people in the state,” Adityanath said.
The Chief Minister’s statement was in response to a tweet posted by CPM in which it criticised his government over the deaths of several children in Uttar Pradesh. “Today, we invite UP CM Yogi to visit Kerala hospitals to learn how to run hospitals effectively,” the CPM had tweeted yesterday. The CPM tweet referred to the death of many children at a government-run hospital in August this year in Yogi Adityanath’ hometownwn Gorakhpur allegedly because of insufficient supply of oxygen.Adityanath also accused the CPI (M)-led Left Democratic Front government of not taking adequate steps to check a “dangerous trend” like ‘love jihad’. Yechury said the BJP-RSS started the political violence. “Why did they threw bombs at Pinarayi Vijayan’s victory rally? They had been accumulating arms since the day poll results were declared,” he said.
