Oxygen Supply in Hospital

Gwalior, May 30: At least three patients undergoing treatment at Gwalior’s biggest government hospital lost their lives after the oxygen supply was cut off to its trauma centre due to disruption in electricity supply, their families alleged on Wednesday.

On the other hand, the management of Jayarogya Chikitsalaya denied any disruption in the power supply or any mischief in the whole matter, news agency IANS reported.

“After a power outage on Tuesday afternoon, the ventilators in the trauma centre stopped functioning and patients found it difficult to breathe. The equipment’s functioning was restored only after 20 minutes,” the families alleged.

Relatives of deceased persons said that when they brought the matter to the notice of the doctors on duty, they were asked to remain calm in view of the serious condition of the patients.

Mahendra Jatav, 38, Omprakash Dhakad, 40, and Rajesh, 14, were declared dead on Tuesday by the doctors, following which their families staged a protest and created a ruckus.

Hospital Superintendent Dr J.S. Sikarvar told the media that no outage was reported though the screens of two monitors had gone blank. “The patients who died were already brain dead. It is very difficult to save such patients,” he claimed.

Indian Youth Congress Protest

New Delhi, Aug 7 : Indian Youth Congress (IYC) activists on Friday staged a protest outside Defence Minister Rajnath Singhs residence over the disappearance of a report from the Ministry of Defences website which admitted to intrusions by Chinese troops in Indian territory in eastern Ladakh.

The protest was led by IYC General Secretary Harish Pawar as hundreds of IYC activists raised slogans against the government.

IYC’s national media co-ordinator Rahul Rao questioned why Prime Minister Narendra Modi in the all-party meeting on June 19 had claimed that there was no intrusion by Chinese troops in Indian territory.

The IYC leader said that this demonstrates a clear attempt by the Ministry of Defence to save the Prime Minister from embarrassment and questioning on account of the MoD report.

After he arrived on Sunday, Tiwari, City Superintendent (central Patna), had been asked to stay in quarantine till August 15.
