    Very shocking. It raises serious questions on the accountability of the Pvt hospitals in Bhubaneshwar. The wrongdoers and the irresponsible individuals must be penalised. If it can happen in BBSR it can happen anywhere in Odisha. And what face you have Mr CM if you can not manage and ensure basic medical needs of the people that too in the capital. Now please stand up to take some responsibility.

    It is very sad for us and shocking. She was absolutely fine before pregnancy and during pregnancy. She had no signs of heart decease which the hospital is highlighting to hide their seer negligence and wrongdoing. We condemn this and the guilty should be punished. This is not at all acceptable for a hospital like sparsh and the doctors. Mr. health minister, and CM Odisha do not put you hands in glove with Sparsh and initiate immidiate action.
