Uttar Pradesh CM Yogi Adityanath while addressing a press conference on Gorkhpur tragedy in Lucknow said the incident is very sensitive . He urged to the media to tell accurate data on the deaths of the childeren.
He expressed condolences for the bereaved families. Yogi also said that Prime minsiter Modi is concerned about the situation in the hospital.
On 10th August 23 childeren died whereas on 11th the no. of deaths decreased to 11 told Yogi adityanath. He also assured a proper investigation in the case and said anyone found guilty will not be spared . Deaths due to oxygen shortage would mean a despicable incident, he added.

Earlier today UP CM Yogi Adityanath while speaking on child deaths in Gorakhpur’s BRD Medical College, said “Encephalitis is a challenge”.
He said Encephalitis disease is there since 1978,and everything that is happening in UP is just because of open defecation and uncleanliness.
Yogi adityanath was making this point with regard to the incident of Gorakhpur however this satement by Yogi adityanath is a bit peculiar as many reports claims that the childeren died due to blockage of oxygen in the hospital.
UP CM also said we are facing a challenge and actions has been taken to conquer it. UP CM Yogi Adityananath said governments are not the problem and if they are they should be scrapped immediately.
Meanwhile Health Minister JP Nadda spoke to UP CM Yogi Adityanath, assured him of assistance/expertise from the Centre.
