The renovation, which is not uncommon ahead of visits by top government functionaries, has enticed criticism.
The Congress also took to it’s so social media handle to share the pictures of the hospital and said the hospital was freshly painted and new tiles were installed to prepare for PM Modi’s visit.

Gujarat Congress spokesperson Hemang Raval commenting on the issue wrote, “When so many people are dying, painting and decoration work is happening at the civil hospital in Morbi. The BJP is only known for its event management. There are two types of disasters but the BJP in Gujarat is the third type of disaster. Instead of painting and decorating, they should ensure that the patients get proper treatment.”
