Indore : A Madhya Pradesh minister was, on Tuesday, airlifted in Chief Minister Kamal Nath’s private helicopter and shifted to New Delhi’s All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) for a minor hairline fracture. According to Times Now sources Madhya Pradesh’s Medical Education minister Vijay Laxmi Sadho fell down during a programme in Indore. She was admitted to a private hospital. During the preliminary examination and an X-Ray scan, it was revealed that she had a hairline fracture in one of her shoulders.
Interestingly, however, despite having a number of well-equipped hospitals in Indore, a decision was taken to shift the Maheshwar MLA to AIIMS in New Delhi. 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.
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.
