Govt draws flak for poor health record

Bhubaneswar: The BJP and Congress on Saturday took potshots on the state government for slipping to 18th position from the sooner 16th in the newest health index published via NITI Aayog lately. The events mentioned the state has performed poorly in neonatal mortality and low-birth weight of newborns.
OPCC president Prasad Harichandan mentioned the state government makes tall claims via bobbing up with some insurance policies or guidelines within the health sector. But it did not put into effect the ones in letter and spirit, he added. "It is unfortunate that the state can't perform well in health indices even after 18 years of the BJD government. The NITI Aayog report proves the government's failure on the health front," mentioned Harichandan.

BJP vice-president Sameer Mohanty mentioned performance of the state isn't adequate in bringing down the neo-natal mortality price or low beginning weight of newborns and growth in immunisation coverage or get admission to of HIV patients to anti-retro viral therapy. "If the health index falls from 16th to 18th rank, it shows the state government has not brought about any significant development in the health sector between 2014-15 and 2015-16," he mentioned.

"We have been hearing about the death of children from Japanese Encephalitis in Malkangiri and delivery of babies by pregnant women on road or near hospital due to lack of ambulance service or medical bed," mentioned Mohanty.

He mentioned Dana Majhi episode exposed the state's helplessness. "We have been raising health issues many times but the state government does not pay heed to our demands," he added.

BJD spokesperson Pratap Deb mentioned the BJP and Congress are bringing political allegations in opposition to the state government. "They don't want to know the real picture of development. Centre has praised the state for polio vaccination and other health measures taken by our government. We are in the process of coming up with several new initiatives in the health sector," he added.
