Nara Lokesh Responds On Pawan Kalyan’s Comments On Uddanam Issue:- Janasena Chief Pawan Kalyan who has been touring across Srikakulam interacted with the Uddanam kidney victims yesterday. He lashed out TDP and AP Government saying that he would go on an indefinite fast if the justice for them is delayed. He even imposed a strict deadline of two days and asked AP Government to appoint a Health Minister. IT Minister Nara Lokesh responded on Pawan Kalyan’s comments. Here is Lokesh’s statement:

“7 Mandals in Uddanam. 80 villages. 238 habitations. 7 RO mother plants completed. 109 Reg Distribution Units completed & 29 in progress. 16 cr spent. All CKD patients undergoing dialysis services in Gov dialysis centers are also being given a monthly pension of Rs. 2,500.More than 1 lakh people screened for CKD by 15 mobile teams in 4 months. 13,093 with abnormal test results were referred to nearby 4 CHCs for evaluation and management. A new lab was established at CHC, Sompeta for follow up of CKD cases under NTR Vaidya Parikshalu).

To make dialysis services accessible to people, 3 new Renal Dialysis Units were established at CHCs Palasa, Sompeta and AH, Palakonda in addition to the existing dialysis centers at RIMS, Srikakulam and AH, Tekkali. A total of 64816 sessions have been conducted until now. To reduce out-of-pocket payments, Nephrologist services are made available once in 15 days at dialysis centers, and supportive therapy for patients on dialysis as well as mild CKD cases are made available at all CHCs, PHCs and through Chandranna Sanchar Chikithsa vehicles”.

George Institute for Global Health, Australia was chosen by ICMR to research on the root causes of CKD problem in Uddanam area and take effective preventive measures. A Research Center is established at VIMS, Visakhapatnam & field activities are in progress in Uddanam area.Our Government is making an honest effort to get to the root of CKD problem and is doing everything to safeguard the health of those affected. I request all to kindly verify the facts before jumping into conclusions.
