Chief minister N.Kiran Kumar Reddy has been urged to order free treatment to those injured in the blasts at Dilsukhnagar in the city last month.

In a representation submitted on Monday, TDP floor leader in the Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation Singireddy Srinivasa Reddy appealed to the government to open a special block at the Nizams Institute of Medical Science (NIMS) here on a permanent basis for free treatment to all the injured in blasts.  He said many of the injured lost their vital body organs and were living dead.

One of them, B.Sravani (20), is a resident of Poosala Basti in Saidabad and third-year student of engineering at Nova Engineering College at Pedda Amberpet. She had her chin, hand, leg and ear damaged severely and needed treatment at a corporate hospital to lead a normal life again. She was admitted to Care Hospital at Nampally  but her vital organs were not functioning, he said. She has been discharged since and is now at home but some of her organs are still not functioning properly.

Alleging that the blasts occurred due to intelligence failure, he said it was government’s responsibility to extend free medical treatment and all other necessary help for complete recovery of the victims.
