ITCHAPURAM: Condemning the State government's alleged negligence over the victims with kidney problems in the Uddanam region of Srikakulam district, actor and JanaSena Party (JSP) chief Pawan Kalyan demanded the Chandrababu Naidu-led TDP government to form a special committee on the issue, to ascertain the mystery behind the disorder.
Pawan Kalyan who visited Itchapuram town of Srikakulam district to a meet with the victims of kidney disorders also demanded the government to allocate Rs 100 crore for the kidney patients of Uddanam region.
Pawan Kalyan also said that it surprises him as the ministers and public representatives from both Central government and State government have not taken any step regarding the chronic disorders, even though thousands have been dying every year.
"The State government has funds to conduct Pushkarams and to build a capital city. When people have been dying for years for unknown reasons, why is the government negligent towards them? Jana Sena party condemns this attitude of the government", said Pawan Kalyan.
Expressing concern over the fate of orphaned children in the region, Pawan requested the government to take immediate measures within 48 hours to secure their future. "A number of kids have become orphans after their parents died due to these unknown kidney disorders. The government should either provide financial aid or adopt them completely," Pawan added.
On behalf of his party, the JSP president appointed a committee comprising doctors and party members including Dr Hari Prasad, Dr Ashok Yadav, Dr Krishna Murthy, Sandeep and a few others, who would give a detailed report on the Uddanam kidney disorders in 15 days. He also said that he would hand over the report directly to chief minister N Chandrababu Naidu, seeking his intervention in the matter.
