CPI state secretary K Narayana on Sunday said that the State Government should be held responsible for infant deaths
occurred in the SVR Ruia Government General Hospital in Tirupati.
Talking to media persons after inspecting the SVR Ruia Government Hospital in Tirupati, Narayana said that the deaths occurred in the hospital mainly due to government’s failure. He alleged that the government has totally failed to provide proper infrastructural facilities in the government hospitals and showing step-motherly treatment
towards them by encouraging corporate hospitals. He said that the shortage of facilities and doctors in the hospitals have exposed the government’s negligent and irresponsible attitude towards the lives of patients.
Even the government has failed to create awareness on seasonal diseases among the common man, Narayana said. (INN)
