One of the doctors in Uttar Pradesh’s Ballia District Hospital could be seen treating a patient under the light of mobile torches on Saturday. The video of the incident became viral on social media.

According to a report, there was no power in the hospital for one hour due to heavy rains in the Ballia district. Due to the non-availability of emergency lights, doctors had no option apart from treating the patients under the light of the mobile’s torchlight.

However, the head in charge of Ballia District Hospital, Dr RD Ram, said that doctors had to face the power cut for only 15-20 minutes.

He said that generators could not start immediately because batteries were kept separately.

This incident has raised questions about negligence and poor arrangements at the district hospital. The state government is tightlipped and hasn’t made any comment yet regarding the matter.
