Telangana politician saves life of patient on Delhi-Hyderabad flight

The Telangana Governor’s in-house physician, Tamilisai Soundarajan, walked out as she provided critical treatment to an air passenger on a New Delhi-Hyderabad flight on Friday night.

Dr Soundararajan, who was returning to Hyderabad from New Delhi, responded to an SOS announcement by the IndiGo flight crew member and immediately sprang into action and provided the treatment.

One passenger complained of chest pains and a multiplicity of complications. Dr. Soundararajan, who is also the Lieutenant Governor of Pondicherry, was a practicing gynecologist before entering politics.

Recently, the Governor of Telangana visited the flood affected areas in Bhadradri-Kothagudem district and provided an update on the situation.

Braving the relentless rains and slippery slush, hiked the area and visited emergency shelters. She visited the shelter camps at Aswapuram Mandal and interacted with people affected by the floods.

She first visited Vemulapalli village in Aswapuram Mandal and later the shelter camps set up at SKT Function Hall, Pamulapally, and Taringini Function Hall, Chintiryala Colony. Dr Soundararajan also visited damaged houses and flooded rice paddies in the area.

The Governor distributed health kits, medicines and tarpaulins, collected by the Indian Red Cross Society (IRCS) and the Lions Club, to flood victims.

Hundreds of displaced people submitted their representations to the Governor and urged Soundararajan to interact with them.

Special teams from IRCS and ESIC Medical College accompanied the Governor to extend relief measures and medical care to those in need.
