Kalyansinghpur, Sep 15:
A tribal man in Rabuguda village under Dhamuni Panga Panchayat of Kalyansinghpur Block in Odisha’s Rayagada district walked nearly 4 km carrying his ailing wife on his shoulder to reach the community health centre (CHC) here.
According to reports, Arjun Karsika of Rabuguda had to carry his ailing wife Ruai (30), who was suffering from fever from last 8 days, to the CHC on his shoulders due to lack of road connectivity to the village.
Due to increasing water level in Kalyani river, the villagers are facing many problems as there is no way for them to go out of the village. So crossing the river is the only way for their transportation.
On Wednesday morning, Arjun decided to carry his wife on his shoulder and cross the river to reach the Kalyansinghpur CHC.
“There is no way for transportation from our village. We are not able to take a patient to the nearby hospital. Calling an ambulance will be of no use as there is no way for ambulance to reach the village. So I decided to carry her on my shoulder as she was severely ill,” said Arjun.
