·Congress holds protest demanding probe, compensation for the victim families
Hyderabad, January 13 (Hydnow): Led by Hyderabad DCC President Sameer Waliullah, Congress leaders held a protest at MN Area Hospital in Malakpet on Friday after two women, who underwent cesarean section, died within hours after delivery.
“The condition of two women, Vanella and Shivani, who underwent cesarean section at MN Area Hospital in Malakpet on 11th of January turned critical and they died within hours after they were shifted to Gandhi Hospital on Thursday. This is a straight case of negligence and all doctors and medical staff responsible for the same must be punished,” demanded Hyderabad District Congress Committee (DCC) President Sameer Waliullah.
A delegation of Congress leaders comprising of Hyderabad DCC President Sameer Waliullah, Mahila Congress Hyderabad President Vara Lakshmi, Greater Hyderabad Minorities Dept Chairman Shaik Arshad, TPCC Minorities Dept Vice Chairman Ashfaq Khan, Charminar Constituency Incharge Adv Mujeebullah Shareef, TPCC General Secretaries Bollu Kishan and Ch Srinivas, the contested candidate from Purana Pul Aslam Shareef, Gantla Krishna and all division and block presidents of Malakpet constituency submitted a memorandum at the Commissionerate of Health & Family Welfare Commissioner, Koti on the issue.
He alleged that the BRS Govt was trying to cover up the medical negligence by floating theories that the women were suffering from Dengue and other health conditions. He said this was not the first case of medical negligence in Telangana. He said four women were killed after they underwent sterilization at the Community Health Centre (CHC) in Ibrahimpatnam in September last year. Similarly, six women contracted an infection after C-section surgeries at Jagtial Government Mother and Child Health Centre due to doctors’ negligence. Now two women died within hours after a cesarean section in a government hospital.
The Hyderabad DCC President said that BRS Govt had promised to establish super specialty hospitals in Hyderabad. However, he said that the present government even failed to maintain the medical infrastructure created by previous Congress regimes. He said instead of taking corrective measures, the BRS Govt has been trying hard to cover up cases of deaths due to medical negligence. He said the recent cases of infections and deaths, especially in C-section surgeries have instilled fear among the poor people and they are being forced to approach private hospitals.
Sameer Waliullah demanded that the State Government take immediate action against the doctors and other medical staff responsible for the death of two women. Further, they said a high-level independent probe should be ordered into the incident. He also demanded that both families be paid a compensation of Rs. 1 crore each.
Several Congress activists were also arrested by the police when they staged a dharna at MN Area Hospital in Malakpet demanding justice for the victims’ families. They were later shifted to the Malakpet Police Station. (Hydnow)
I could never wrap my head around Bollywood’s obsession with continuously addressing condom as a chhatri or an umbrella. Not only it’s cringe to hear repeatedly but also, it somewhere defeats the whole purpose with which films around these subjects are made. Moreover, picking a taboo subject and making a film on it can turn out to be quite risky if you don’t stick to the agenda and beat around the bush. Thankfully, Rakul Preet Singh’s Chhatriwali, directed by Tejas Prabhaa Vijay Deoskar, doesn’t digress much, and follows a crisp screenplay. There are some flaws here and there, but with all the humour and lighter moments, they can be somewhat overlooked.
