Modi’s rare humane approach

A new born baby from Assam is battling for life in Delhi after it was airlifted to the capital thanks to Prime Minister’s rare and humane initiatives.

The eight day old baby who was born at the Assam Medical College Hospital in Dibrugarh suddenly slipped into a complicated lungs disease and the doctors who attended on the baby referred the case to the Ganga Ram Hospital in Delhi.

Without any delay, the parents air lifted the new born to the capital on ventilation support. As the baby and the team of doctors landed at the Indira Gandhi International Airport, the ventilation support reached its last stage and it would take around one hours to reach the hospital.

Prime minister Narendra Modi who got to know it ordered green corridor on the route to the hospital. All vehicle stopped on the roads and the ambulance carrying the baby arrived in the nick of the time.

A team of paediatric has been monitoring the baby whose condition is said to be critical. Without Modi’s intervention it would nit have been possible for the baby to remain on life support.

Green corridor in the road is applicable for the president and prime minister’s convoy.

Deka to put Sonowal in a fix!

11 Jul 2016 - 1:17pm | AT News

In a major development that could put the BJP-led government in a fix, a BJP MP has demanded an enquiry into the allegations of scams during the 15 year long Congress Government.

Mongoldoi MP Ramen Deka in his recent letter to Sarbananda Sonowal has urged him to constitute a probe in to the major allegations which took place during the Tarun Gogoi regime.

“The allegations of corruption should be probed. This is my request. I have not taken anybody’s name individually,” Deka told Assam Times over telephone from New Delhi.

But the letter bears no less significance when a section of the ministers in the Sonowal Government was known for their vital role in the erstwhile Tarun Gogoi Government.

“Nobody should be spared. Corruption is corruption. We would weed out it. Our Government is firm on tackling corruption in all forms,” said a senior BJP leader in Assam.

A section senior Congress leaders is believed to have been satisfied with Deka’s letter demanding probe into the allegations of corruption in the 15 year long Congress regime.

“We are happy and a BJP leader has asked for an inquiry. We think it would reveal the real source or person behind the allegations of scams,” said a senior Congress leader in Guwahati.

“We dare the Chief Minister Sonowal to probe the allegations of scams and to figure out the person or persons responsible for it. But we will closely watch the action against the indicted person,” he said.

Another Congress leader said,” we are happy to have heard it. But it remains to be seen how the Government will take action against the ministers who till the other day were Tarun Gogoi’s cabinet colleagues and struck media headlines with some stunning allegations of corruption.”
