People around the hospital expressed their anger shouting anti-government slogans when Rahul entered the hospital premises. “Why did he come to the hospital? These politicians are least bothered about us. They should leave immediately. They must not be allowed to enter the premises," said Meena, relative of Tarun (30), a shopkeeper who was injured in the high-intensity explosion.
Kailash, a victim said his relative was angry on government as government could not even ensure the security of an important place like Delhi high court. “So many people have lost their dear ones. Visiting us won"t help," he said.
Despite the sentiments of people against Rahul's visit, he visited the old emergency ward and made a round at the place where doctors were attending to the injured in tight security. “He spent around 20 minutes inside the hospital," a police officer said. He left the hospital without speaking to the media who were awaiting a statement on the blast.
Meanwhile, Delhi Lieutenant Governor Tejinder Khanna visited the hospital and commented that the situation was “very serious". “I have not seen such a serious situation before. I met 15 of the injured people, some have lost their legs and some have lost other body parts," said Khanna.
