Vadodara: Union Minister of State for Road
Transport & Highways, Tushar Chaudhary on Saturday alleged that
Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi was neglecting the tribal
community in southern parts of the state, where
leptospirosis had claimed 185 lives in the past four months.
Chaudhary said, "Modi has not
bothered to look into their conditions since the leptospirosis
cases were reported this June."
The minister was here to attend a day-long tribals`
convention organised by Gujarat Congress.
Modi had time to attend sundry inaugurations earlier this
week, but did not visit leptospirosis patients in Surat
government hospital, he said.
"Out of more than 800 patients of leptospirosis in south
Gujarat, 185 people have died," Chaudhary said.
Chaudhary, a trained doctor, represents Bardoli
constituency in south Gujarat in the Lok Sabha.
