Morbi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi will visit Morbi in Gujarat today where 134 people were killed in the suspension bridge disaster. The First Minister will meet members of the family of the deceased and those injured. Meanwhile, the hospital, which admitted those injured in the disaster, hastily renovated it overnight with painting and other renovations, drawing widespread criticism. The clean sweep was on Monday night ahead of the Prime Minister’s visit.
More than 100 people were injured in the suspension bridge collapse accident. Most of them have been admitted to Morbi Civil Hospital. The Prime Minister will visit Morbi on Tuesday morning. Hours before this, extensive renovation work was carried out at the hospital.
Paint on the walls. New water coolers have been delivered. All the bed sheets were changed in the wards where the injured were received. Many workers were doing cleaning work at the hospital late at night and until Tuesday morning. Every place the Prime Minister is likely to visit has been painted. Photos of the tiles being replaced have also been released.
The opposition Congress and Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) claimed that the BJP event managers were in a hurry to secure a photo shoot for the Prime Minister in the disaster area. The Congress tweeted photos of the renovation with the caption ‘Tragedy Incident’.
PM Modi will visit the Civil Hospital in Morbi tomorrow. Before that, painting is done and glossy tiles are installed. Every arrangement is made to ensure that the photos of the Prime Minister are flawless. They have no shame. Even when many people lost their lives, they are busy controlling the incident,” the Congress tweeted.
The Aam Aadmi Party also mocked that if something had been done in the last 27 years, they would not have had to rush to work with so many workers in the middle of the night.
