Mainpur, Feb 11:
A big question arises as to how many needy people are getting the benefits of tailored made health schemes. The recent case of a special backward caste community person came to fore when a woman and her child in womb died in course of delivery. This woman was daughter-in-law of poster lady of Congress party Baldi Bai. Even after this woman hailed from special backward caste Kamar tribe, family members took loan to pay the hospital bill as allegedly they did not receive the benefit of state government health scheme. This woman hailed from village Kulhadighat, situated inside the forest and about 18 km from Mainpur headquarter. This village inhabited by Kamar tribes shot to limelight when Late Rajiv Gandhi in 1985 during his visit to this place announced of taking the total responsibility of this village. The family members of deceased woman submitted all necessary formalities to get the benefit of health schemes. The family members on Monday spent 12 hours with the dead body and on Tuesday at about 12 pm after paying the hospital bills took the body and returned back to their village in the evening.
The husband of the deceased woman Dhansai Sori said, his wife Chandrabati Sori was admitted in a private hospital in Abhanpur on February 08 following pregnancy pain. While undergoing delivery she died and also her child in womb.
What official says
CHC Mainpur BMO Dr Gajendra Negi said, on Monday Chandrabati Sori was brought to Mainpur hospital but finding her condition serious was referred to district hospital for better treatment. They were bound to get the benefit of Ayushman Yojna but how the patient was taken to a private hospital is not known to him.
Kamar Development Authority member Pileshwar Sori said, many question arises as to how a member of Kamar community died during labour pain and they did not get the benefit of government medical scheme. Further her body was released only after family members took loan from others to pay the hospital bills. He said of complaining about the matter to the health minister T S Singhdeo and CM Bhupesh Baghel.
