Kerala: Yogi Adityanath’s rejoinder came straight after the CPM made its hospital barb at him.
“In one year, there have been more than 300 deaths in Kerala due to dengue and several hundred deaths due to chikungunya. This shows the CPM government is not handling its responsibility,” Yogi Adityanath said.
“Today, we invite UP CM Yogi to visit Kerala hospitals to learn how to run hospitals effectively,” the CPM had tweeted yesterday.
It is worthwhile pointing out that the CPM tweet referred to the death of plenty of children at a hospital in August this year in the UP chief minister’s home town Gorakhpur, some allegedly because oxygen ran out. On an expected note, Yogi Adityanath’s government drew severe criticism over how government hospitals are run in the state, including in a place that the chief minister has represented for years in Parliament.
“There is no scope for political violence in a democracy, But unfortunately Kerala, God’s own land, is witnessing politically sponsored violence,” he said, vowing to “make people aware about the misrule of the CPI(M).”
