Rahul Gandhi Gorakhpur visit LIVE updates: Congress VP will visit in connection with the death of children in the BRD medical college hospital.

The news was confirmed by Congress district unit president Sayed Jamal. So far, 71 children have lost their lives in the BRD hospital since August 7 due to various causes including encephalitis. Some of the deaths were alleged to have been caused by the shortage of oxygen, a claim dismissed by the Uttar Pradesh government.

    Can these leaders address to public directly, they generally make people pity into political parties war and that is how they are saving their skin. These leaders are bringing democracy at its all low. I have not seen leaders of high capacity addressing directly to people from years in India. India is becoming banana republic. Sir please dare to address to people government or opposition else day will come people will show you real definition of democracy, which will be at work and not only in books.
