BJP MP demands compensation to the families of 24 patients who died due to lack of oxygen

Expressing shock over the death of 24 patients due to shortage of oxygen, BJP Chamarajanagar Lok Sabha member V Sreenivas Prasad urged the government to provide compensation to the kin of the deceased.

Speaking to reporters about the tragedy, former Union Minister Prasad said that he had spoken to Chamarajanagar Deputy Commissioner M R Ravi on the Covid-19 situation on Sunday night and was assured that everything was under control.

But, I was not told about oxygen shortage and I am also not aware of the communication between the DC and Mysuru & Kodagu MP Prathap Simha.

He said those who are responsible for the incident should be punished.
