Firing a fresh salvo at the government over the death of infants at a Gorakhpur hospital, Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi on Saturday dubbed it as a 'government made tragedy'.

Rahul said the government must take action against the deaths and not try to cover it up.

"Modi ji talks of new India, we don't need a new India like this, we need India where poor can take kids to the hospital and return happily," he told the media after meeting families of victims of the tragedy at BRD hospital.

    Senior Congress leaders Ghulam Nabi Azad, Raj Babbar and RPN Singh also accompanied Rahul Gandhi to meet the family members.

    Gorakhpur in Uttar Pradesh has become the epicenter of Indian politics post the death of more than a 100 children at the Baba Raghav Das Medical College and Hospital allegedly due to lack of supply of oxygen in recent times.

    On Saturday, just a few hours before Rahul Gandhi's scheduled visit to Gorakhpur to meet the parents of the deceased children, CM Adityanath trained his guns at the Congress leader during the launch of Swachh Uttar Pradesh, Swasth Uttar Pradesh (Clean Uttar Pradesh, Healthy Uttar Pradesh) campaign in Gorakhpur.

    "The prince sitting in Delhi won't understand the value of cleanliness. Gorakhpur should not be allowed to become a picnic spot for him," Adityanath said.
