With the number of children deaths at the BRD Hospital in Gorakhpur reaching 68, Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath today got emotional and said that no one can be more sensitive towards children than him.

Yogi Adityanath and Union Health Minister J P Nadda today visited the BRD Hospital where several children have died allegedly due to suffocation caused by shortage of oxygen supply in wards.

"My fight against encephalitis is from 1996. I have seen children dying. I will not allow it to happen anymore," the Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister said, while addressing a press conference.

Calling today's visit his fourth to the hospital in recent times, Yodi Adityanath said that more than 90 lakh children have been vaccinated for encephalitis.

Promising strict against against the guilty, he said, "Let the probe committee's report come. If anyone's negligence caused the deaths, he will not be spared".

Yogi Adityanath also hit at those who he said were "trying to add salt to the wound by raising the sensitive issue unnecessarily".

He said that Prime Minister Narendra Modi personally called him up and assured him of Centre's assistance in the case, if needed. "He sent Union Health Minister J P Nadda here," Yogi Adityanath said.

Taking a dig at the Opposition, which has attacked Yogi Adityanath for the deaths, the Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister said, "When Ghulam Nabi Azad was the Union Health Minister, he came here and said that we can't do anything as it's a state matter".  

In the wake of extensive reporting on the children deaths in the hospital, the Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister also asked mediapersons to visit the wards and see the real picture.
