West Bengal Congress president Adhir Chowdhury on Tuesday asked Union Health Minister J P Nadda to visit the state government-run hospitals and witness their “sorry state of affairs”, following the death of two persons in the Murshidabad hospital fire incident.

“I have written to Union Health Minister J P Naddaji and have requested him that he should come and visit the state-run hospitals, to witness the sorry state of affairs. I have requested him to come and examine its pitiable conditions because patients of these hospitals are Indian citizens too,” Chowdhury told PTI.

“The people of the country should know how the state-run hospitals are functioning without any basic amenities and safety measures,” Chowdhury said.

Two persons died and seven others were injured in a stampede after a fire on August 27. West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee has ordered a CID inquiry into the incident.
