A video of a dog sleeping on a hospital bed in Ratlam in Madhya Pradesh went viral on social media on Friday, prompting the opposition Congress to slam the Bharatiya Janata Party government for the “worrisome health system” in the state.
Ratlam Chief Medical and Health Offficer Dr Prabhakar Nanavare said he was unaware of the incident as he was on leave.
मध्यप्रदेश में भले मरीज़ों को बेड़ मिले या ना मिले लेकिन “श्वान “ तो बेड पर मस्त सोया हुआ है…
तस्वीर रतलाम के अलोट की बतायी जा रही है…

In a tweet, MP Congress spokesperson Narendra Saluja said dogs were getting sound sleep in the state under the BJP dispensation while patients were unable to get beds in hospitals.
The video is from a government hospital in Alot here, Saluja claimed. “Worrisome health system,” Saluja tweeted.
