Ahead of Uttar Pradesh CM Yogi Adityanath’s visit to the BRD Medical College Hospital at 1.30 pm on Sunday, security arrangements had been stepped up. Rushing to the Emergency Trauma Centre of the hospital was Sunil Pandey, his 70-year-old mother Leelawati on his forearms. Owing to tight security arrangements for the CM’s visit, traffic to the hospital had been stopped and police were asking Sunil to clear the area for the CM’s convoy.

Only after entering the trauma centre did he stop for a breath.

“She has been suffering from a spinal problem. Forget about standing, she cannot even sit on her own. We brought her here and took an admission slip. Then they asked us to get an X-ray done,” Sunil said as he asked for stretcher for his mother.

“No vehicle was available, so I carried her to the X-ray facility. While returning, they told me that the Chief Minister is arriving so I should rush. I asked mother to grip me well around my neck and ran,” said Sunil.
Leelawati, who was listening all the while, said, “Mera beta hai. Meri kamar ne jawab de diya tha. Dikhane leke aya hai. Aur koi haspatal nahi hai na… (He’s my son. My back had given way. Came here to consult. There were no other hospitals…)”.

    Yogi is a murderer MP of Gorakhpur. He should resign immediately for this Gorakhpur tragedy. ... If Yogi knew the problems so acute, then why he did not use his MP lad funds of crores for this disease eradication and for building infrastructure of BRD Medical College? With 20 years of MP, he would have got allocated crores in that MP fund. Obviously, he would have sanctioned money for Gau-Shalas and for gau-rakshaks from his MP fund. A very wrong priority set by a very wrong unqualified MP and CM.

        A large portion of the blame for lack of hospital facilities, ambulance services, honest doctors, primitive treatment for cancer, etc in the country goes to the congress party, the SP, and BSP who have ruled UP for decades who never bothered to develop UP nor help its people other than looting the country. The BJP and the CM Yogi Adityanath has been in power in UP for a short period but working hard towards developing UP but Yogi doesn't have a magic wand to change the situation instantly.

          BJP Cyber Terror cell troll spotted. Stop blaming congress for everything for rest of your life. Congress has not been in power since more than 3 years but BJP could not deliver a single thing but only Jumlas and empty and hollow speeches of Modi.

              Yogi Raj is showing its true colour, I don't think we can see Ache Din just by lip service.
