Kota: Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot has given his response regarding the death of children in JK Lone Hospital in the district. Gehlot has said that the way the matter has been handled in the media, there is no point in it. The lowest figures in the last 5 years are now coming. We created ICUs for small children in 2013. From that time onwards, we aimed to get the newborn the right to live life. The equipment was first purchased in Rajasthan in 2013. The government changed after 2013 and the work came to a standstill.
Gehlot has taken a dig at those who do politics. He has said that there should not be any attempt to take political advantage on the death of children. The government is very sensitive in the case of the death of children. He also said that Harshvardhan, who is himself a doctor, should come and see the arrangements himself.
Rajasthan CM Ashok Gehlot: The number of deaths of infants in the state is the least now as compared to the last 5-6 years. Medical arrangements are excellent. Still, we are making efforts to reduce Infant Mortality Ratio (IMR) & Maternal Mortality Ratio (MMR). #KotaChildDeaths pic.twitter.com/FXart84Znl— ANI (@ANI) January 2, 2020
He said that I am not blaming anyone on this occasion because we have never done politics on the issue of children since the beginning. CM said that some people are doing their politics in this whole matter and their allegations are completely baseless. He said that our efforts are that no child should be killed or the mother of the child due to lack of medical attention, but to divert attention, the matter is being spurned at the behest of some politicians, but their charges are strong Is not.
He said that it is completely baseless to compare Gorakhpur case with this case of Rajasthan. CM said that Lok Sabha Speaker Om Birla is from Kota, he should convince people that politics should not be done on this matter.
