In an incident of medical insensitivity, a man died outside the gates of a government hospital waiting for medical treatment in Madhya Pradesh's Guna on Thursday, July 23.
The deceased died after lying under the tree for around 12 hours for the want of medical attention. He was denied admission to the Guna district hospital as he did not have Rs 5 to buy the hospital registration slip (parcha) alleged his wife, reported The Times of India.
The deceased identified as Sunil Dhakad was a resident of Ashoknagar district. He belonged to an extremely poor family and reportedly suffered from tuberculosis.
According to News18, with a toddler in her lap, Dhakad's wife reached Guna hospital for treatment of her ailing husband. The couple was unable to buy the registration slip which was mandatory for admission to the hospital.
The woman pleaded hospital authorities to understand that her husband was on the death-bed but they did not pay any heed.
Former Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Kamal Nath took to social media to bring attention to the incident and attacked the ruling dispensation and the hospital staff for apathy.
"This is not how I had left the state," he tweeted on Friday morning.
"You were busy in the auction of MLAs but a woman in Guna, carrying a toddler, kept pleading all day to save her husband's life. He wasn't treated because he didn't have Rs 5 to buy a parcha. He gasped to death in front of his wife. Is this the condition of the state under Shivraj government?" he added.

5 रुपये नहीं होने पर उसका इलाज का पर्चा नहीं बनाया गया और उसका इलाज नहीं किया गया और उसकी आँखो के सामने ही उसके पति ने तड़प- तड़प कर दम तोड़ दिया।— Office Of Kamal Nath (@OfficeOfKNath) July 24, 2020
