The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) MP also claimed in the letter that the Balrampur hospital administration was not admitting patients in the hospital due to “lack of manpower” and “spoiling” the name of the chief minister by not using these ventilators for saving lives.
“Instead of lying unused, these ventilators must be used for saving lives which is the need of the hour,” he further said in the letter.
No official of Balrampur hospital was willing to come on record over the issue. Chief medical officer (Lucknow) Dr Sanjay Bhatnagar said, “The issue is dealt by the Balrampur hospital administration who decided utilising the resources.”
In the letter, the MP also highlighted what he described as the sorry state of treatment in King George’s Medical University.
