Meanwhile, the Congress on Sunday noted that GorakhpurHospital tragedy clearly reflects the failure of the state government and demanded that Yogi Adityanath immediately resign as Chief Minister. Later, the chief of the hospital was suspended by the Yogi goverment.

He said none of the deaths occurred during this time. Rajeev Rautela said,"The doctors said alternative arrangements for oxygen cylinders were made to deal with the emergency". "Heart-wrenching incident. Saddened by children's death". The previous government gave the contract to the supplier for 8 years for oxygen supply.

But according to PTI, a Union home ministry statement that quoted the Gorakhpur police superintendent said 21 children died because of shortage of oxygen. He had even inaugurated a ten bed ICU, a six bed Critical Care Unit.

The Uttar Pradesh Government, following this report, jumped in defence of the medical college. The disturbance in the oxygen supply in an entire night which was connected to children caused the death of innocuous children. It is the place where both births and deaths take place.

Congress president Sonia Gandhi who expressed her grief towards the families who lost their children due to "medical negligence", urged the UP government to take immediate action against the ones responsible. Immediate action has been demanded by her against all those responsible for the very bad incident.

Akhilesh Yadav, the former chief minister and Samajwadi Party leader, alleged that the hospital did not conduct port mortem examinations on the dead children. "The matter is under investigation and the guilty would be punished to prevent the re-occurrence of such incidents", Yogi Adityanath said.

Further slamming the opposition and critiques for politicizing the issue, Adityanath said, "Those whose sensitivity has died are now trying to add salt to the wound by raising the sensitive issue unnecessarily". And the news came out that 63 children died due to disruption of oxygen supply. The facility will help identify "the real problems of vector-borne diseases" in Eastern Uttar Pradesh and will help find "a permanent solution".

"Deaths are not due to oxygen supply cut-off, no one can stop supply like this, we know consequences", said Meenu Walia, HR, Pushpa Gas agency.
