Madhya Pradesh education minister Vijay Laxmi Sadho was on Tuesday, airlifted in Chief Minister Kamal Nath’s private helicopter to Delhi’s All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) for a minor hairline fracture. The Minister had to be airlifted after she suddenly collapsed during a program at indore.
During the preliminary examination and a X-Ray scan, it was revealed that she had a hairline fracture in one of her shoulders. Interestingly, despite having a number of well-equipped hospitals in Indore, a decision was taken to shift the Maheshwar MLA to AIIMS in New Delhi.
Many have criticised the act citing that at a time when common patients have been struggling with the basic infrastructure to reach medical facilities for serious ailments, a minister is being offered special help from the state’s highest office for a minor injury such as a hairline fracture.
The machinery swung into action and the minister was airlifted to New Delhi in Kamal Nath’s personal helicopter. The development comes just over a month after Kamal Nath was elected as the Chief Minister of the state when Congress came to power in the assembly polls results that were announced on December 11.
