Demand with the Chief Minister through ‘Surajya Abhiyana’!
In order to provide quick treatment to those injured in road accidents, Trauma Care Centres have been set up in many places in the State; however, fact remains that in the year 2021 and 2022, over 27,000 people have lost their life in 60,000 odd road accidents. Whereas this number is increasing every year, out of the total 108 Trauma Care Centres approved in Maharashtra, only 63 are functional, while as many as 45 Centres are not functional. This has been revealed through Right to Information. The past experience shows that there is heavy rise in the traffic during the Ganesh festival. The safety of Ganesh devotees is important. The lives of passengers who meet with road accident can be saved only if they get immediate treatment; hence, the Government should start the remaining 45 Trauma Care Centres which non-operational with immediate effect. This demand was made with the Chief Minister, Health Minister and Public Works Minister of the State of Maharashtra on behalf of Hindu Janajagruti Samiti’s Surajya Abhiyan. This information was given by the Maharashtra State Coordinator of Surajya Abhiyan Mr Abhishek Murukate.Trauma_Care_PressNote_PN_E
Through the Right to Information conducted on behalf of Surajya Abhiyan, it has been revealed that 45 Trauma Care Centres in the State are not functional. In Palghar District, the Trauma Care Unit is not operational, while in Sangli District, a unit has been approved in Islampur, which is close to the highway; but, its preliminary level process has not yet started. Even in Mangaon, which happens to be an important town and industrial hub in Raigad District on the Mumbai-Goa highway, the Trauma Care Centre has not yet commenced. Similar is the case with Khandala located in Satara District on the Pune-Bengaluru highway. Trauma Care Centre is a very sensitive issue related to the lives of the people of the State. The present Government is aware of the problems of the people and is quick to act on them. In this regard, we hope that the Chief Minister will definitely pay attention to this matter and sort it out, said Mr Murukate.RE_Trauma_Care_Rajya_Nivedan
