In April, Adityanath government claimed that they have started working on setting up six AIIMS and 25 new medical colleges in UP.

"The daily annual average of deaths for 2014-2016 is 17-18 per day in the BRD medical college hospital, he said".

Gorakhpur DM Rajeev Rautela said that the cause of the deaths at the BRD Hospital was the disruption in the supply of liquid oxygen and has further appealed to the suppliers to not cut the supply henceforth.

Supply of liquid oxygen was disrupted yesterday due to pending payment.

The children were admitted at the Baba Raghav Das Hospital in Gorakhpur district of Uttar Pradesh, India's most populous state. The death of 30 children over two days, has grabbed headlines, but according to a Hindustan Times report, more than 3,000 children have died at the BRD Medical College since 2012.
