Gorakhpur tragedy: In a losing battle against encephalitis, Yogi Adityanath must rise above rabble-rousing

On March 21 of this year, when Yogi Adityanath came to speak to Parliament for the last time, he spoke about the spread of Japanese encephalitis in eastern Uttar Pradesh and took a chicken Samajwadi Party, Bahujan Samaj Party and Congress.

Like five deputies in Lok Sabha, Yogi had been consistent in raising concerns about deadly encephalitis, which resulted in the deaths of a number of children in Gorakhpur recently.

In his last speech to parliament (pronounced after becoming Prime Minister of Uttar Pradesh), he said that he had always raised the question, but unfortunately, those who continue to talk about Dalit and the Muslim communities have not bothered to fight the illness.

Yogi added that the majority of child victims of the disease belonged to Dalit and other minority communities.

The best health care to combat encephalitis has been one of the main tips of Yogi policy.

He often organized demonstrations of various types in and around Gorakhpur, visited the BRD hospital (the only hospital in the city with a department of encephalitis) and met with the families of the affected children.

With the death of more than 100 children, including 42 in a two-day period at the BRD Hospital in Gorakhpur, the issue of encephalitis, its prevention and treatment, has plagued Yogi.

Now that he is the prime minister, he can not blame him. Young children are dying in their hometown, either because of the negligence of doctors; lack of medical facilities; the severity of the disease; interruption of oxygen supply; or for any other reason, including the criminal apathy of those who were at the helm in the past.
He will have to take responsibility for the loss of life.

The apathy shown by those associated with state administration and hospitals is appalling. A sort of approximation hake has permeated the system.

Perhaps, Yogi should return to some of the speeches he made in Parliament. He must then apply the same test on it.

If we go through the speeches of Yogi in Parliament, it seems that he has become a non-medical expert on encephalitis. As he is aware of all its nuances and possible corrective measures.

Now he has run the state for six months. It has a large majority in the Assembly. You do not have to spend time, energy and apply your mind to political management. Its time should only be devoted to governance and should remain focused on the problems of the State.

Yogi is also lucky to have her party at the Center. He was elected by Prime Minister Narendra Modi and BJP President Amit Shah and therefore has the full confidence of his party and the Center. Therefore, the Yogi can not have excuses.

Unfortunately, the death toll at BRD Hospital is a grim reminder that Yogi did not turn his words into deeds.

Although he visited this hospital five times – including August 9, one day before a suspected oxygen supply crisis took many lives – and is well aware that this disease affects children age group 0-15 from July to October each year, did not take any substantive action on the ground to inspire confidence.

These deaths and the habitual attitude of those in the bar shake their conscience.

This can not be a New India, where children are allowed to die because doctors hospitalize the desert; the supply of oxygen is irregular because a babu refused to make payments because his palms were not greased to his satisfaction; or because hospitals do not have the infrastructure to deal with an epidemic such as encephalitis, although this deadly disease is a four-decade phenomenon.

Let us consider the numbers of deaths, quoted by Yogi himself in his various speeches in Parliament: In 1978, Japanese encephalitis affected eastern Uttar Pradesh and caused havoc after the rains, from June to October-November.

Two-day remand for 6 securitymen in Ram Rahim’s cavalcade

A local court granted a two-day pre-trial detention to interrogate six Dera Sacha Sauda security men, who would have been asked to resort to violence if the verdict was not in favor of their guru.
Dera’s six disciples, including a driver, were identified as Ranjit Singh, 25, Sirsa, Dharmender, 27, Uttar Pradesh,

Anup of 30-year-old Haryana, 43-year-old Krishanpal Singh, 43-year-old Sangrur, Maninder Singh, 36-year-old Patiala and Sukhwinder Singh of Fatehabad.

All of them were reserved under the Weapons Act and relevant sections of the Indian Penal Code.

The six persons, including one driver, Ranjit Singh (25), Sirsa resident, Dharmender (27), resident of Uttar Pradesh,
Anup (30), resident of Haryana, Krishanpal Singh
(43), resident of Sangrur,
Maninder Singh (43), resident of Patiala, and

Sukhwinder Singh (36), a resident of Fatehabad, was brought before the court of the first judicial magistrate, where police ordered a one-week pre-trial detention, but was granted two days.

Manimajra station officer Harmanjit Singh told the magistrate that although the defendants were taken to Sirsa, they were denied entry into the dera by the army for security reasons.
Therefore, they needed more time to interrogate them so they could take them to Sirsa and arrest a man named Mithoo.

Police said he gave the defendant fuel, money, a car and a gun to come to Panchkula as part of Ram Rahim’s parade.

Defense lawyer Gagan Inder Singh objected to the claim that the defendants were “blind followers of the so-called god and were corrupted by the system because they were poor.” He said: “They are poor and have fallen into a trap.

As stressed HT, the defendant obtained ₹ 1,000 each and a 30-liter gasoline. Police said Mithoo had received instructions from Dera’s board of 11-12 members, mostly doctors and lawyers, after which the defendant had issued instructions.

Dera chief Ram Rahim’s securitymen planned to free him. Police explain how

Haryana police succeeded in knocking out Dera Sacha Sauda’s chief, Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh, the CBI Special Court in Panchkula to Rohtak jail only after failing against an alleged offer of his security agents to the official of the Haryana police.

However, an alert team led by Police Subcommittee Sumit Kumar has thwarted the offer of God’s commands to escape with Chief Dera said.

As for journalists in Gurgaon, Inspector General of Police (PGI) KK Rao said that as soon as the so-called man of God has been convicted, he demanded a “red bag” he had brought from Sirsa.

“Dera’s boss asked for the bag, saying that his clothes were in. Actually, it was a signal to his men to spread the news of their conviction among the fans so they can use the disturbances,” he said Rao.

He said that when the bag was removed from the vehicle, the sounds of the tear gas buoys launched about 2 km from the place were heard.

“It was then that we realized that there was a feeling behind the signal,” said Haryana police.

And what made the highest officials of the police was that Ram Rahim Singh and his adopted daughter were standing in the hall of complex court Panchkula for a long time, even though they were not supposed to, he said.

“They were trying to save time before sitting in the vehicle so that their men could spread the message that he was passing the court. They were told they could not stay here.

People were about 2-3 miles away and could have gotten closer. Whenever violence was wanted in Sector 1 as a victim it could have been more, “said the senior police official.

The police decided to have him sitting in the DCP Sumit Kumar vehicle instead of the vehicle he had arrived in, Rao said.

When we did sit in the vehicle, commands, deployed with him for several years, landed the boss of Dera, said Rao.

“Afterwards, DCP (Crime) Kumar and his team woke up with them and their commands were even beaten,” he said. “We had a lot of fun,” Rao said, adding that even the commands assigned to protect the man of God were armed.

Another threat the police perceived was about 70 to 80 vehicles, part of Chief Dera’s parade, which was parked next to a nearby theater, he said.

“We did not want to use the same road that 70 vehicles were standing, people in those vehicles would have carried guns,” he said.

Our priority was to take Baba into the helicopter site, he told himself and added that it is a challenge to make him sit in the police car, Rao said, adding that it was a decision to change the route.

“I asked a man in the army to have police vehicles (including the one with Dera’s boss) to move into the barracks. If people had the knowledge of our movement, they would have come to the country and layoffs could have taken place “said the IG.

As we were about to head towards the cantonment, Chief Dera’s private commanders were forced to cling to the police vehicle, he said. They were beaten again and placed in police custody, Rao added.

“Baba’s men had not had the nuance for over half an hour to know where they had taken him,” he said.

“We learned about the evacuation plan when we asked for the red bag.” Second, they were trying to save time. Third, why the men in 70 vehicles were standing, “he said.

The god was taken to the Sunaria prison in Rohtak through a helicopter, the police official said.

A century of business partnership between India and Germany

The Indo-German Chamber of Commerce(IGCC) has existed almost from the very beginnings of Germany’s trade with post-independence India. The Chamber has played an exemplary role in promoting and shaping business relations between the two countries. Business World speaks to Dirk Matter, Director, of the IGCC in Duesseldorf. Excerpts:

PKB: Can you share something about the history and development of the IGCC?

DM: The IGCC was founded in 1956 in Mumbai, making us the first bilateral German Chamber of Commerce in Asia, some years before Japan and other countries.

Some Germany firms have a relationship spanning over 100 years with India. For example, Krupp had sold locomotives over a hundred years ago, Bayer has been in India for over a century and bought natural dye in those days. Siemens had laid telegraph lines from Kolkata to London in 1875 and it was the Germans who built the famoussteel plantin Rourkela.

IGCC’s most popular service is business partner search. In the last eight years we have set-up about 200 companies for German enterprises in India. Closely connected with company formation is HR recruitment; when an SME has a small production or distribution subsidiary,an Indian managerisemployed.

We have sponsored trade fairs and the Indo-German Training Center offers dual education for Indian postgraduates in business administration.

PKB: In your 23 years of experience at the IGCC what impressions have you gathered of doing business in India?

DM: The Indian market is an interesting market where industry sectors are still being built—new factories for the car industry and even steel plants—something which is not happening in Germany any more. But there are many companies in Germany that have good expertise in these sectors.

Though India retains the image of a low cost country,
this is no longer true especially in real estate and energy. Wages are still low, but that only for unskilled workers; salaries of highly qualified people have risen significantly in the last few years.The business mentality is different and both sides sometimes find it difficult. We, as a Chamber, try to give a little support in that we offer intercultural training not just to the Germans but also the Indians.

PKB: What’s your vision of the future?

DM: We hope that economic growth will increase again because only that can guarantee that the situation for people will improve. We hope that Mr. Modi’s visit to the HanoverTrade Fair will be useful in putting India in focus in the German media which will help attract more trade with India. The substantial barriers for foreign investors need to be reduced and this will lead to more job creation.This is my great vision for the future.
