Morbi hospital says ‘routine work’ amid political slugfest
Ahmedabad, Nov 01: Following the attack of Opposition parties on Morbi Civil Hospital's renovation work, the hospital in response has said that the renovation is routine work.
The opposition parties-Congress and Aam Aadmi Party-have assailed the Bharatiya Janata Party and Prime Minister Narendra Modi alleging that the renovation of the hospital ahead of PM Modi's visit is being done for the photoshoot.
In response to the political reactions, Dr Pradip Dudhrejiya, medical superintendent of Morbi civil hospital, said, "It is a routine work and is taking place everywhere. The work is going on in every government set up," reported India Today.
PM Modi is scheduled today to visit the hospital where the injured in the Morbi bridge collapse were admitted.
The AAP took to Twitter and wrote, "141 people are dead, hundreds of people are missing, no action has been taken against the real culprits, but BJP workers are busy covering up to prepare for the photo shoots."
