Tripura Govt Preparing To Begin Kidney, Liver Transplantation Surgeries In GB Pant Hospital: CM Saha

Agartala ( Tripura) [India]: Tripura Chief Minister Manik Saha said that the state government has been working tirelessly to introduce liver and kidney transplant facilities in the state government-run GB Pant hospital to ensure that affordable treatment reaches the masses.

The Chief Minister on Wednesday was speaking to media persons on the sidelines of his visit to the hospital in Agartala in the late evening.

"In the month of June, we are likely to start the kidney transplant procedure here in Agartala. This is a big step towards making expensive treatment available in government-run hospitals. In the next phase, we are thinking of starting a liver transplant here," Saha said.

"Many qualified doctors who were born and brought up here are willing to return to Tripura. They want to serve their own state and we welcome this spirit," he added.

On his impromptu visit to the second-biggest public health facility in the state, Saha said, "I am here to see whether everything is okay or not. Recently, I have visited AGMC as well. I keep hearing about some issues and during my visit, I have passed instructions to resolve the existing issues as soon as possible."

On being asked about the railway restoration works that led to an acute crisis of petroleum products in the state, the Chief Minister said, "I have written a letter to the Union Railway Minister. He has assured us that all the problems will be resolved soon."

Due to the ongoing repair works in certain parts of Assam, the movement of trains carrying fuel and other essentials is disrupted, which has led to a crisis of oil in the state.
A press statement from the Chief Minister's office said that Chief Minister Saha had been monitoring the situation closely.

He had also assured the people of Tripura that within a couple of days, the situation would stumble back to normalcy.

Chief Public Relations Officer (CPRO) Sabyasachi Dey spoke on the issue and told media, "Track settlement works are underway between Jatinga Lampur and Harangajao stations. The movement of passenger trains is going on without any hassle."

"We are making all efforts to make sure that the passenger train movement keeps going. The restoration works largely depend on weather so we hope things will soon be normal," he said.

According to sources, the railway tracks in the area were damaged because of heavy rainfall.
