Rayagada: One person died while over 20 others fell ill after allegedly consuming spurious country-made liquor at Kataguda village in Kalyansinghpur area of Rayagada district on Friday. The deceased has been identified as Dhanphul Huika, a native of Dhepaguda.

Around 30 people including Dhanphul reportedly fell sick after they consumed liquor and developed symptoms like diarrhea, vomiting and swelling in abdomen.

“He (Dhanphul Hoika) returned home after taking liquor in Kataguda. He complained of illness and stomach ache before dying at 1.30 PM yesterday,” informed Dhanphul’s relative.

All the sick persons were rushed to Kalyansinghpur Community Health Centre for treatment. Two of them were later shifted to Rayagada Hospital after their condition deteriorated further.

Taking a serious note of the incident, Rayagada district collector Pramod Behera ordered a probe into the matter.

The concerned Health and Excise officials including Additional District Medical Officer (ADMO) visited Kalyansinghpur hospital to inquire about the health condition of the sick. Besides, they conducted a raid in Kataguda .

While the locals held the Excise department responsible for the liquor tragedy, the Excise officials claimed that the incident took place due to food poisoning. “They did not consume the wine from any of the licensed liquor units. They drank country-made wine and fell sick due to food poising,” informed Dilip Gauda, Excise official, Rayagada.

Rayagada: There seems to be no improvement in basic infrastructure in remote areas as patients continue to face hardship in seeking emergency medical services in Odisha.

In one glaring example, a patient had to be carried in a sling for nearly 8 kms before he was shifted to the nearest hospital. The incident has been reported from Paramali village under Kalyansinghpur block in Rayagada district.

According to reports, the family members of Phuluka Sikaka had to shift him to the Kalyansinghpur Community Health Centre in a sling after his condition deteriorated.

Sikaka was not keeping well for the past few days and his hands and legs developed swelling yesterday. Though the family members called up an ambulance, no emergency vehicle was available in the region.

With no other option, the family decided to carry Sikaka in a sling to the hospital.

Sources said that the only 102 ambulance is out of order and is lying defunct since last two months.

Not only Sikaka, several other people, mostly pregnant women, continue to suffer either due to absence of proper road connectivity or lack of ambulances in different parts of the State.

Rayagada: It is now testing times for Puspalata Kaushalya, a resident of Kalyansinghpur block after the sole means of communication in her region was washed away in flash floods early this week.

The expectant mother is now worried as there seems to be no option for her family to rush her to hospital in case of any emergency. Not only Puspalata, the people in five panchayats are now starring at an uncertain future.

According to reports, over 20, 000 residents of five panchayats in Kalyansinghpur block of the tribal dominated Rayagada district have been cut off from rest of the world after a temporary bridge over Kalyani river was washed away by the flash flood on Thursday.

Earlier, the temporary arrangement was made after the main bridge got washed away by incessant rains last year.

In the absence of proper communication links, locals including women and children were forced to cross the river on a bamboo raft thus risking their lives regularly. A report was also telecast by OTV on the plight of people of the region.

However after the reports made headlines in media, the district administration constructed a temporary bridge over the river. But the temporary structure again got washed away during the heavy rains that lashed the area on Thursday.

As a result, people are now forced to rely on a makeshift bamboo structure to cross the river.

“A temporary bridge was constructed on the river with an expenditure of around Rs 5 to 7 lakhs which was functional for three-four months. But without a bridge now, we are facing the same trouble again,” informed a resident of Kalyansinghpur, Suban Kumar Garadia.

“The temporary bridge was made of up hume pipes. However, people constructed a bridge made of bamboo after the previous one got washed,” said Arjun Kadrika, a resident of Patabandha area.

“I will direct the panchayat officials to submit an estimate for a temporary bridge on the river so that at least two wheeler vehicles can ply on it. However, the tender process for the long-term bridge is over and the construction work will soon start,” informed Kalyansinghpur BDO, Anup Panda.

Rayagada: Exposing the sorry state of the health sector in Odisha, an expectant mother delivered a baby on the roadside as ambulance reportedly failed to respond to the emergency call on time at Kalyansinghpur in Rayagada district.

According to reports, the woman had developed labour pain late on Saturday night and it was only at around 5 am on Sunday that the family members had contacted the ambulance.

However, as no ambulance attached with Kalyansinghpur Community Health Centre was available, another vehicle from Kolnara was requisitioned which was nearly 50 kms away from the spot.

By the time ambulance reached the spot, the woman had already delivered a girl child on the roadside with assistance from a local ASHA worker.

“As both the mother and child were shivering, we had to make provisions for fire to protect them from intense cold,” said a family member.

Later both the mother and her baby were taken to the Kalyansinghpur CHC and their condition is said to be stable after preliminary treatment.

Rayagada: Once again poor road connectivity and infrastructure forced a man to carry his ailing sister in arms to the hospital in Kalyansinghpur block of Rayagada district.

Bama Sika had to cover a distance of 5 kms on foot to rush his sister Kuni of Parsali panchayat to Kalyansinghpur community health center (CHC) on Saturday.

According to reports, Bama’s sister Kuni of Parsali panchayat had fallen sick while she had gone to harvest crops in the forest. With no other option available at his disposal, Bama carried Kuni in his arms, crossed a river and later managed to seek an auto-rickshaw to shift her to the CHC.

“Only after covering nearly 5 kms on foot, I managed to get an auto-rickshaw to shift my sister to the hospital,” said Bama.

Soumyaranjan Jena, CHC doctor stated that the patient was immediately attended.

“We had conducted malaria test and the patient was diagnosed negative. We have admitted the patient and she is being provided with necessary treatment,” said Jena.

Expectant-mother-rescued

Rayagada: Superstition and inhumanity touched heights after family members of an expectant mother denied to touch her, leave alone carry her to the hospital in Kalyansinghpur late on Friday night.

The incident reported from Singhamuhi village under Karapa Panchayat took place when the woman complained of labour pain yesterday. Soon, an Asha worker reached and asked the family to take her to the hospital.

Driven by superstitious beliefs, the men in the family denied even touching the woman in pain as she was reportedly bleeding profusely.

In absence of network connection even the ambulance could not be contacted to reach the village. After being informed, In-charge doctor of Kalyansinghpur CHC and a team of local journalists reached the village to take stock of the situation.

Seeing the family unmoved despite efforts, the team carried the woman in labour through muddy roads, dense forest and crossed a river in an Amadori (makeshift strethcher) for nearly four kilometers to reach the nearby junction.

OTV reporter Maudi Barik was also seen holding the stretcher.

Later, the local villagers cooperated with the media team and helped them carry the woman further for five kilometers. She was then made to lie inside government MMT vehicle of the CHC and admitted to the Kalyansinghpur Health Centre.

As her condition worsened, she has been shifted to the Rayagada District Headquarters Hospital and is under medical observation, sources said.

“I was returning from Rayagada from a function when I got to know about the incident. Along with a team of reporters, I was able to reach the village. We referred to shift her to the DHH as the woman had been bleeding since six seven hours which reduced her haemoglobin level. We tried to contact 108 ambulance but there was no network in the village. The condition of the woman was serious, and as I’m In-charge of the Medical, I referred to use the government MMT vehicle to take her to the hospital,” said Laxmi Kanth Sahu, In-charge of Kalyansinghpur CHC.

Rayagada: Thousands of residents in four gram panchayats of Kalyansinghpur block rely on bamboo rafts as the only mode to cross bridgeless Kalyani River which puts their lives at stake on a daily basis.

Communication problems have worsened in the interior areas following floods last month which washed away several bridges and approach roads, affecting the lives of people in Parasali, Sunakhandi, Palma and Kalyansinghpur GPs.

However, the administration is yet to do anything significant even though reports of people including pregnant women crossing the river by means of rafts have been making headlines in the media.

“We have no other option but to put our lives at stake to cross the river for our daily needs, be it school, market or even office works,” said a resident.

On the other hand, the local administration has promised to ensure safety of people by making necessary arrangements.

“We have already sent a detailed survey report and requisition for necessary funds for construction of an approach road and high-level bridge over the river. Besides, we have also planned for an alternative stone patching on river bed level if necessary,” Rayagada Sub-Collector Prabir Kumar Nayak told OTV.

Bhubaneswar: Delivery of healthcare services both in rural and urban areas is in a shambles, alleged Leader of Opposition Narasingha Mishra.

Mishra’s statements came after a pregnant woman was shifted to a hospital on a ‘bamboo raft’ owing to floods in Kalyansinghpur block in Rayagada district here on Friday.

The shocking visual of the woman being transported to hospital in such temporary arrangement has sparked widespread resentment over lack of adequate infrastructure in case of emergency situation.

Sources said, locals had made such arrangement to shift the pregnant lady after the bridge had collapsed due to floods.

“Healthcare delivery mechanism has gone for a toss in State and the condition particularly in remote and backward areas is in shambles. Government has failed to improve the health sector,” said Mishra.

BJD on the other hand has refuted such allegations leveled by the opposition leader.

“As the bridge had collapsed and with no other option, the woman was carried on a raft to the hospital. The Chief Secretary had reviewed the situation and has sought a detailed report by Monday. Efforts will be taken for restoration of infrastructure damaged by floods,” said BJD spokesperson Amar Satpathy.

Rayagada: The chinks in Odisha’s healthcare system were yet again exposed after a pregnant woman had to be carried across Kalyani river precariously  in a ‘bamboo raft’ in flood ravaged Kalyansinghpur block in Rayagada district.

The shocking visual of the rescue-cum-alternate arrangement made to rush the woman writhing in labour pain was reported exclusively by OTV on Friday.

According to reports, nearly eight to 10 local youths had volunteered and made such arrangements to shift the pregnant lady to Kalyansinghpur hospital as the road connectivity in the remote area was snapped after a bridge at Purunabhatta had collapsed under the impact of floods in Kalyani river on July 16.

Local residents claimed that with no other option, they had taken up the task to shift the lady to the hospital.

Sneha Mishra, a social activist, on the other hand claimed that such incidents have become commonplace due to the corroding health care facilities  in remote areas in the state. The situation worsens during the rainy season as bridges and other temporary roads get washed away, she added.

However, in this particular incident, the role of district administration officials is also under scanner as there is always information about pregnant women in respective areas while the data is being monitored by ASHA workers also.

“In case of floods, adequate measures should have been taken to ensure that pregnant and expecting mothers can be shifted much in advance,” said Mishra.

Earlier, the State government was also targeted over poor health care systems and poor infrastructure in the form of better road connectivity after another pregnant lady had to be carried on stretcher in Kalyansinghpur on July 11.

Four men had carried the woman on their shoulders for nearly five kilometres after they failed to seek an ambulance.

As there are no pucca roads to Sajja village of Sikarpai block, the woman had to be taken on a stretcher since vehicles cannot ply on the muddy kuccha routes.

Besides what is more serious is that the pregnant woman was carried by the men across the Nagabali river with waist deep water and all the way for five kilometres on the potholed road.

Kalyansinghpur/Rayagada: Flood situation in Rayagada district improved slightly as river Kalyani and Nagavali started receding since last night.

Thousands of people were still marooned in several villages. The government started airdropping of food packets to the marooned people at Majhiguda, Kumbharguda, Brahmana Sahi, Kumbharsahi and Sai Nagar. The district administration has also started serving cooked food to the people taking shelter in schools.

“The flood situation in Kalahandi and Rayagada district is improving. Free kitchens have been opened for the affected people in these areas. Airdropping of relief materials have been done in Rayagada district,” CM Naveen Patnaik said.

Flood-in-RayagadaRain-Water-in-RayagadaRayagada district administration has declared closure of schools and colleges for three days in Kalyansinghpur block in view of flood. Similarly, schools and anganwadi centres were shut in Kalahandi district in view of flood.

Health Minister Pratap Jena reviewed health care system in flood affected areas. “Special medical teams have camped in flood-hit Rayagada district with adequate medicines and vaccination. Director of Health Services is directly supervising the work,” Jena said.

Special Relief Commissioner (SRC) Bishnupada Sehty convened a meeting with NDRF, ODRAF and fire services officials.

“Despite intermittent rains, there is a slight improvement in the flood situation in Rayagada and Kalahandi district. Choppers have been engaged to airdrop food packets in marooned villages. Around 3000 relief packets have been distributed. Free kitchen centres- two at Kalyansinghpur and 10 at Rayagada- have been opened to serve cooked food to the victims. Three teams of NDRF and CRPF and two of ODRAF have been mobilised to expedite relief and rescue operations. Rayagada Collector and DIG (south) are monitoring the situation,” the SRC said.

He further added that local NGOs and local industries have also joined hands in the relief work. Over 65 people stranded at various places were rescued last night, Sethy added.

Rains triggered by a low pressure over Bay of Bengal since Saturday led to flash floods in Nagavali and Kalyani rivers of Rayagada district affecting about 10,000 people in Kalyansinghpur block and neighbouring blocks in the district.

On the other hand Bansadhara river continued to swell as it crossed the danger mark near Kasinagar in Paralakhemundi today. As many as 21 gates of Gotta barrage on the river have been opened to release excess water, the SRC informed.

Bhubaneswar: The BJP has held Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik responsible for the flood situation in Southern Odisha as the latter is in charge of the Department of Water Resources.

State BJP Vice President Sameer Mohanty, in a press meet on Sunday, alleged that absence of any project on prominent five rivers of Odisha – Bansadhara, Nagavali, Jhanjabati, Mahendra Tanaya and Rushikulya – to check such situation paved way for the hazard.

Addressing media persons, Mohanty said, “The Chief Minister who is in charge of the Water Resources Department is only reviewing the situation. Such a situation would have avoided had any projects been constructed on the river.”

Mohanty added that the BJP activists of Southern Odisha have been asked to visit the affected areas and extend support to the people.

Incessant rains and an unprecedented rise in the water level of the Nagavali and Kalyani River triggered flash floods in Kalyansingpur block in Rayagada district on Sunday. Twelve villages of Kalyansinghpur and Rayagada are affected due to the flash flood.

Besides rail track in between Therubali and Singapur stations have been washed away by the flood water.

In a similar situation in Kalahandi district, vehicular communication between Junagarh and Dharmagarh, Bhawanipatna, Nabarangpur came to a standstill as water in Hati River has crossed bridge level due to incessant rain in upper catchment and release of surplus water from the Indravati reservoir.

Communication between Gunupur and Thuamul Rampur was severely affected as water crossed the bridge level on Nagabali River.

Met Department has predicted more rain in Kalahandi, Rayagada, Gajapati, Ganjam, Malkangiri and Nabarangpur and said it will continue till next three days. Water level in Rushikulya and Bansadhara may rise if rain continues, informed regional Met office and advised fishermen not to venture into sea.

Two such hand written materials in the name of Odisha State Committee of CPI (Maoist) were found stuck on a tree at Sikarpai here in Rayagada district. One of the posters read “Oppose Modi’s visit to Odisha on April 14,15 and his Land Acquisition Act”. It also appealed to the people to oust Vedanta and save Niyamgiri hills.

Another poster threatened the security forces against combing operations in the Maoist infested forests. The ultras also alleged Rayagada SP lured the tribal youths with money to become police informers and asked him to refrain from such activities.”Rayagada SP should stop instigating tribal youths to become police informers”, the poster mentioned.

On March 31, suspected rebels had triggered a blast and ransacked Doikalu station. The posters they left behind  besides protesting Modi’s visit, had also criticised non-Odia officers being appointed to senior posts in the state police as well as administration.

Rayagada: In yet another case of collapsed health care services in the State, a woman and her new born baby died on Monday in the district, as the ambulance she needed to reach the nearby hospital failed to turn up in time.

Sources said, family members of a pregnant lady in Ghagudimal village under Kalyansinghpur block called up a 102 ambulance as she started experiencing labour pain in the morning. But as it didn’t turn up, they arranged a cot to carry the lady to the Kalyansinghpur hospital.

After travelling for about two kilometres, the ambulance reached. But by then her condition had started deteriorating.

She delivered the baby at the hospital. But soon after the birth the infant died due to poor health of the woman. Doctors treating the lady referred her to Rayagada District Headquarters Hospital (DHH) where she breathed her last.

When asked, Chief District Medical Officer (CDMO) of the district refused to comment on the matter.

The sorry spectacle of the poor tribal woman in Kalyansinghpur area of Rayagada district delivering inside a Tata Magic while on her way to the hospital puts the spotlight back on the rickety state of our health care services, especially in the remote, tribal areas of the state. It also reminds us that the much vaunted 102 and 108 ambulance services that were conceived to avoid precisely this kind of a situation have failed the people they were meant for in the first place. They have invariably failed to arrive when they are needed the most

The sorry spectacle of the poor tribal woman in Kalyansinghpur area of Rayagada district delivering inside a Tata Magic while on her way to the hospital puts the spotlight back on the rickety state of our health care services, especially in the remote, tribal areas of the state. It also reminds us that the much vaunted 102 and 108 ambulance services that were conceived to avoid precisely this kind of a situation have failed the people they were meant for in the first place. They have invariably failed to arrive when they are needed the most.

The woman in Kalyansinghpur is, in a sense, lucky that she did get an alternative vehicle and managed to reach the hospital to ensure that both she and her new born baby survived. But not everyone is so lucky. Many die on the way while others deliver still born babies because they are unable to reach hospital in time.

There are myriad reasons why ambulances don’t reach the needy in time. At most places in interior Odisha, there are too few 108/102 ambulances catering to too many people. As a result, some are bound to miss out on this service. Then there are problems of terrain. Often, the person requisitioning the service lives in too remote an area for the ambulance to reach. Then there are other reasons like a snag in the vehicle, lack of fuel, mobile phones not working, the reluctance of drivers to fetch people at unearthly hours and so on. But not all of these reasons can explain away the spectre of death and disease that stalks these areas in the hinterland.

The sight of Dana Majhi carrying the body of his dead wife on his shoulders seared the conscience of the nation and even the world. It brought heaps of opprobrium for the state government, including a missive from the Prime Minister’s Office (PMO) seeking an explanation in the matter. But did it prick the conscience of the state government? On the basis of the evidence available so far, the answer has to be an emphatic ‘No’. Far from admitting its failure in providing succour to Dana, the state government has strained every sinew to paint the poor tribal from Melghar village in Kalahandi district as the villain of the piece. “You see, he didn’t inform anyone in the hospital before taking away the body of his wife. So what on earth could we have done?” is the official explanation, which has since been exposed by Dana’s teenage daughter for what it is: a white lie.

Let us, for a moment, discount Dana’s claim that the collector asked him if he had killed his wife because he could have been ‘tutored’ by the leaders of opposition parties, who have descended on his nondescript village like vultures do at the sight of a corpse. But what about the fact that an utterly heartless district administration ‘summoned’ him to do the rounds of various government offices in Rayagada and answer a volley of questions from officials (so that he could get a princely sum of Rs 5, 000 as assistance!) on a day he was preparing to complete the last rites of his departed wife?

It is this lack of empathy that is at the root of almost all problems that bedevil our countryside. After all, if the OTV reporter could arrange a vehicle to carry Dana, his daughter and the body of his dear wife through his efforts, was it such a Herculean task for the district administration – with all the resources at its command – to arrange for a vehicle for Dana?

The fact is no one really cares. Not the man or woman tasked with taking government services to the last mile. Not the district administration that is expected to come to the rescue of people in such situations. And certainly not the government busy drawing up plans to make Odisha the land of milk and honey with the Rs 90, 000 crore ‘Biz Bonanza’ promised at the Investors’ Meet at Bengaluru.

Till this apathy continues, expectant mothers will continue to die on their way to hospital (or deliver on the way), poor men would continue to carry their dead on bicycles, trolley rickshaws or their shoulders and tribals in Kashipur will continue to die after consuming mango kernel gone poisonous.
