Oblivious to the reality of the medical crisis in Bihar, when questioned by the media, chief minister of the state Nitish Kumar lost his calm and snapped back at the media. 

In retaliation to the confrontation the JD(U) leader asked the media to 'stay in limits,' meanwhile, in Bihar over 170 children have died due to the outburst of Acute Encephalitis Syndrome (AES). 

Republic TV took the JD(U) leader to Muzaffarpur's Sri Krishna Medical College and Hospital after the government's repeated denial over filth and their criminal negligence.

Confronted with facts, and forced to take accountability, the leader admitted that the place has "some deficiencies," furthermore told the reporters than action would be taken. 

He said, "You all are also constantly coming here, the social groups are also working and the government is working too. "

"I am telling you, even we visited the place along with the chief minister, but we did not get an opportunity to come to this area. I am telling you that the work will start immediately. Will meet the administration head here and tell him to fix everything that you people have revealed," he added.  

On Tuesday, NDA leader and chief minister Nitish Kumar paid a token visit to the Sri Krishna Medical College and Hospital in Muzaffarpur following the backlash. 

Amid widespread protest, Nitish Kumar stepped out of the hospital and sat straight in his vehicle. His convoy made its way outside the hospital premises even as hundreds of protestors sought an explanation from him for the deaths of the children.

In a slight reprieve to the Bihar health crisis, on Thursday, the National Human Rights Commission of India (NHRC), took note of the deplorable health infrastructure in the country and issued notice regarding the state of government hospitals to the Union Health Ministry and all state governments and Union territories' governments too, according to ANI.
