  1. This is for public appeasement. Respected CM should know the number of patients that can be handled with present infrastructure and provide the same at the hodpital. Hospital care is Team work and blaming doctor alone for what had happened is wrong. Why was the child not treated at primary stage itself at the primary health centre. When we need one PHC for every 2000 population, we have one for every 30 to 40,000 population. Why should doc be blamed for lack of funds with govt.
