New Delhi [India], September 21 (ANI): After the Uttar Pradesh government decided to revoke the licence of Amethi's Sanjay Gandhi Hospital for alleged 'medical negligence', Congress leader Pramod Tiwari questioned the state government's decision asking whether there is any hospital where deaths don't take place.
Talking to ANI, the Congress leader further said that Amethi MP Smriti Irani is trying to'halt' the services provided by Sonia Gandhi.
"No one wants to take responsibility that who sealed it. Is there any hospital where deaths don't take place? And if anyone dies, then there is an inquiry. Those who are responsible are held accountable. The death didn't happen in Amethi's Sanjay Gandhi Hospital, it happened in Lucknow's Medanta Hospital. And which hospital are they sealing? I can assure you that in that area, there is no medical facility which is better and more affordable. They are demanding medical college but it is not fulfilled because Sonia Gandhi is the head of the trust. They are trying to halt the services providedby Sonia Gandhi. And the one to halt it is Smriti Irani," the Congress MP said.
Congress leader Sonia Gandhi is the chairperson of the Sanjay Gandhi Hospital, run by Sanjay Gandhi Memorial Trust New Delhi, while party leaders Rahul Gandhi and Priyanka Gandhi are its members.
The UP Health Department on Monday suspended the licence of Sanjay Gandhi Memorial Hospital in Amethi following the death of a 22-year-old woman in a case of alleged medical negligence.
Uttar Pradesh Congress chief Ajay Rai on Wednesday requested Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath to revoke it in public interest saying it is causing inconvenience to people.
"The hospital provided health care facilities to people of the nearby areas on minimum charge and without any profit for the past few decades," Rai said, adding that the hospital is the lifeline of Amethi. Suspension of license is causing inconvenience to lakhs of people coming for OPD, surgeryand services of other departments. (ANI)
