In the special neonatal care unit of Bhandara Hospital in Maharashtra, 10 newborns died due to fire at around 1:30 pm on Friday. The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has called a bandh in Bhandara district today (Monday) regarding this incident. BJP MP from Bhandara Sunil Mendhe gave this information. He said that the party wants to either have a judicial inquiry into this accident or get it investigated by a retired judge.
The BJP MP said, ‘BJP has taken a decision of one day bandh in Bhandara to draw the attention of the government on this incident. We want the families of the deceased to be given compensation of Rs 10 lakh each. On the visit of Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray to the hospital, he said that he felt that on his visit, the CM would suspend the civil surgeon, doctors and other staff with immediate effect and ordered a thorough investigation but nothing like this happened.
