Surguja (Chhattisgarh): A pregnant woman from Kadnai village of Surguja was carried on a makeshift basket through a river, as an ambulance couldn’t reach the village due to lack of proper road connectivity.
Speaking about this, Sanjay Kumar Jha, Collector, Surguja, said “it’s not a matter of not having good health facilities. There are a few remote villages where people find it difficult to commute during rainy days”.
In addition to this, he said that for such remote places, we are planning to use small cars to reach people. It will not be possible to reach residences of the people via cars but we will strive to reach as near their residences as possible to help the people in need.
