In Madhya Pradesh’s Barwani district, a 20-year-old pregnant woman was brought to the hospital on a temporary stretcher by her relatives after walking eight km. The strange thing is that the road is not fit for motor vehicles. Due to this the woman was brought to the hospital on a bamboo and cloth stretcher.

A video is going viral on social media in which some people are seen carrying stretchers made of cloth and bamboo sticks on the shoulders of the woman from Khamghat village to Ranikajal in the district. They were later identified as the family members of the woman and the villagers. This incident happened on Thursday.

Rai Singh, a villager, said that the woman had to be taken eight km from Khamghat to Ranikajal for treatment. Pansemal Hospital is about 20 km away from us.

Villager Rai Singh further said that we have been applying for the construction of a road from our village for a long time, but no one has listened to us and no action has been taken. In the absence of a road, vehicles cannot reach the village and it is difficult to reach a hospital.

Pansemal Block Medical Officer (BMO) Dr Arvind Kirade while talking to reporters said that the health workers had encouraged the woman’s family to take her to the government hospital.

When asked about the woman’s treatment, Dr Kirade said villagers and family members had to take her away as there was no motorable road from Khamghat to Ranikajal. He is undergoing treatment at Pansemal Hospital.

When asked about the viral video, the chief executive officer (CEO) of the district panchayat, Rituraj Singh, said he would take up the issue of roads with the department concerned.

CEO Rituraj Singh said that getting No Objection Certificate (NOC) from the concerned authorities is the main problem for road construction in forest villages. I will talk to the concerned department for road construction under Pradhan Mantri Gramin Sadak Yojana.
