Uttar Pradesh CM Yogi slams Priyanka Gandhi over Kota infant deaths

Slamming the Congress leader, who had recently gone to UP to protest, Yogi Adityanath wrote: “Had Priyanka Vadra met the aggrieved mothers in Rajasthan, instead of doing political gimmicks in UP, then those families might have got some consolation. They have no concern nor any sympathy. They want to do politics, not public service. The indifference, insensitive, and irresponsible attitude of the Congress government in Rajasthan and of chief minister Ashok Gehlot is sad.”

Yogi Adityanath had been targeted by the Opposition including Congress in 2017 when 1317 children had passed on due to intense encephalitis disorder. In August, 63 children had died at the clinic after the oxygen supply ran out. Mayawati slams Priyanka In a arrangement of tweets, the previous Uttar Pradesh chief minister too slammed the Rajasthan government for the passing of infants.

“The death of 100 children in Rajasthan’s Kota district is very sad and painful. Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot and his government are still insensitive, disinterested and irresponsible, which is highly condemnable,” she charged in a tweet.

“But, what is more saddening is the fact that the top leadership of the Congress and especially its lady general secretary maintaining silence over this issue. It would have been better that like she did in UP, she had met the aggrieved mothers, who lost their children due to the laxity of the party’s government,” she said.
