Opposition parties said government negligence on Monday evening at SVR Ruia Government General Hospital resulted in deaths from an interruption in oxygen supply.

Muni Subramanyam when they were visiting the hospital to pay tribute reportedly to a deceased member of the BJP district unit Dalit Morcha.
