"In the last 24 hours, six male and six female babies died." Twelve adults perished as a result of different diseases, chiefly snake bites. "We had some difficulties because various employees were being transferred," he explained.

"We are a tertiary-level care centre and the only one in a 70 to 80-kilometer radius." As a result, patients travel long distances to see us. "On some days, the number of patients increases, causing a budget problem," he explained.
"There is a school, Haffkine." We were meant to purchase drugs from them, but this again did not occur. "However, we did purchase medicines locally and distribute them to patients," the dean noted.
The Maharashtra Opposition launched an all-out attack on the Eknath Shinde administration, claiming that the "triple-engine sarkar (of the BJP, Eknath Shinde Sena, and the Ajit Pawar faction of the NCP) should take responsibility."
