Upendra Kushwaha holds Nitish Kumar responsible for children’s deaths; demands his resignation



Former union minister and RLSP chief Upendra Kushwaha Sunday held Chief Minister Nitish Kumar responsible for the childrens deaths in Muzaffarpur district and demanded his resignation. Chief Minister Nitish Kumar is responsible for childrens deaths in large number in Muzaffarpur district.Despite so many deaths of children, the state government has not taken any concrete action to prevent it. Nearly 140 children have lost their lives due to Acute Encephalitis Syndrome (AES) outbreak in the state since June 1, of which 127 died in Muzaffarpur district alone, state health department sources said. Mr Chief Minister, mere assurance (to impprove things) will not serve the purpose. Either you act or resign from the post of CM, failing which the RLSP would hit the roads to expose him (Nitish) for his failures, Kushwaha said. The AES outbreak, which according to the state health department has affected about 20 out of the 40 districts in the state, has afflicted more than 600 children since June 1, killing close to 140. Also read: Against the sanctioned posts of 7,249 regular doctors in the state, only 3,146 doctors are currently working in government hospitals and 533 contractual doctors are working against 2,314 contractual posts in the state, he said. How will the health care system improve with 3,679 doctors working in the state against the total sanctioned posts of 9,563 doctors (including regular and contractual doctors)? he asked. When pointed out that Deputy Chief Minister Sushil Kumar Modi has not spoken anything on the issue of the childrens deaths, Kushwaha alleged that Prime Minister Narendra Modi and BJP president Amit Shah, who is also the Home Minister, also did not express their sorrow or grief over the loss of so many lives. This shows their insensitivity, he said.
