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.
