He further said that the arrangement of oxygen cylinders was duly made and a strict action will be taken against those responsible for the mishap. It is being said that due to non-payment of outstanding money, the company providing the oxygen was stopped.

At least 27 kids and three adults lost their lives in last 36 hours after a hospital allegedly due to lack of oxygen supply to the wards housing the sick. The hospital report records that 300 extra oxygen cylinders were got on Friday evening from Faizabad., as per sources.

"All the reports that have come in the media, even the Prime Minister Narendra Modi is upset with them", Yogi said, adding that PM Modi said that the Centre Government will provide whatever aids the Uttar Pradesh government needs to strengthen the health sector.
