The CPM, in the issued letter, has strongly condemned the conditions which resulted to the death of more than 60 children at the BRD Hospital in Gorakhpur.
It also took a dig at Prime Minister Modi's Swachh Bharat Abhiyan, after the UP Government blamed the sanitary conditions for the death of the children. In addition to it, it questioned Adityanath's contribution to the state, mainly because the imcident took place in his own constituency - Gorakhpur.
The CPM asked for a high-level probe into the matter and demanded a stringent punishment for the guilty.
