Lucknow: The monsoon session of the UP Legislative Assembly has begun. On Tuesday, for the second day, SP President and Leader of Opposition Akhilesh Yadav targeted the Yogi government’s health minister Brijesh Pathak. Akhilesh called Brijesh Pathak a guerrilla minister without naming him. He said that poor patients are not getting facilities. People have to go to Delhi for treatment. People are saying that the health minister goes to the hospitals and only raids. Will you only become a guerrilla minister or will you do some work. Did you try to find out if the picture changed after the raid?
Akhilesh Yadav said that quacks are treating doctors in UP hospitals. Patients are being taken to the hospital on cots. Hospitals are full of water. This government claims to be a double engine government but the ministers have no answer to these things. The SP President did not stop here. He said that the condition of health services in UP is bad. The doctors have given up on the treatment. Patients are dying due to negligence. Only dogs were seen in the hospital of Kannauj in the last days. Who can forget the Corona period when the plight of hospitals in UP came to the fore.
The Leader of Opposition said that the budget is not being given to the Health Minister. This is a conspiracy to shut down government hospitals. The government is short of staff. They want to lock government hospitals by privatization. Patients are being taken to the hospital on a handcart. Ambulances are nowhere to be seen. Akhilesh Yadav said that the government should tell how many machines have been purchased for treatment. Custodial death took place in Gonda, on the same day the woman was given wrong injection in Nawabganj, Gonda, which led to her death. Isn’t death due to medical negligence?
