Asaduddin Owaisi: Will BJP deny tickets to MLAs with more | Live Newspaper Hyderabad


HYDERABAD: All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM) president and Hyderabad MP Asaduddin Owaisi on Saturday claimed that there were 150 MLAs in Uttar Pradesh who have more than two children. He challenged UP chief minister Yogi Adityanath to state clearly if BJP will deny tickets to such legislators in ensuing polls to t state assembly.
Speaking to reporters, Owaisi demanded the Centre launch an inquiry into the Pegasus or at least allow a debate in Parliament over the issue. “When inquiries are being done on the Pegasus-phone hacking issue in Israel and France, why is the Modi-government scared to even constitute a commission to inquire into it?” Owaisi questioned.
The AIMIM president also lashed out at PM Narendra Modi for his perceived silence on the issue of “China sitting in Indian territory.” “Why doesn’t the Modi government lead a delegation of MPs and journalists to Depsang, Gogra, Hot Spring and Demchok to show that these are still under control. But the reality is that the Chinese soldiers continue to be in control of our territory…,” Owaisi alleged.
The AIMIM president also lambasted the BJP government in Uttar Pradesh and Centre for allegedly neglecting the health sector.
“There are four lakh acutely malnourished children in UP, severe shortage of doctors and specialists in public, community health centres and sub-centres. The Modi-government had filed an affidavit in Supreme Court in 2020 stating international experience shows that any coercion to have a certain number of children is counter productive and leads to demographic distortions,” he said.
Owaisi also demanded the Centre give jobs to crores who lost jobs due to the alleged mismanagement of the second wave of Covid-19.

HYDERABAD: In a second incident, reported within a span of few days, another junior doctor was assaulted at a government-run hospital in the city on Saturday by a patient’s relatives.
The latest incident took place at Niloufer Hospital where final year student, Dr Vishnu Vardhan Reddy, was attacked by attendants of a patient allegedly for honking at them as they were blocking the exit of the ICU building.
Niloufer superintendent Dr Murali Krishna lodged a compliant with the Nampally police.
In his complaint, the superintendent stated: “Dr Vishnu Vardhan Reddy, final year post graduate of paediatric department, was assaulted by attendants of patient Md Shafuddin on the hospital premises in the intensive care building ground floor. Requesting for necessary action against the accused.”
As per the complaint, the incident took place around 2 pm. The accused started abusing the doctor when he honked signalling at them to clear the way. The attendants opened the car door, hit the doctor in the face and tore his shirt. A female attendant also used abusive language against Reddy.
TOI’s attempts to reach Dr Reddy or the family involved in the incident for their comments failed to yield any result.
This comes close on the heels of the previous incident reported from the Government Chest Hospital where a junior doctor was assaulted, leading to unrest among the medical fraternity and boycott of duties. “We constantly work in fear of losing the confidence of the patient’s attendants and what consequences we will have to bear. If the public treats us this way, despite us working for 36 hours at a stretch and under stressful conditions, it’ll lead to trauma,” said a female junior doctor from the hospital.
Meanwhile, members of the Telangana Junior Doctors Association (TJUDA) said that these repeated incidents have led to many doctors slipping into depression. “Many doctors are now facing mental health issues due to the tremendous workload and shoddy treatment meted out to them by patients’ attendants,” said Dr Dharmula Sagar, president TJUDA.

PM Narendra Modi to IPS officers: Fight negative image | | Live Newspaper Hyderabad


HYDERABAD: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Saturday asked Indian Police Service (IPS) probationers to strive for changing the negative image about police among the general public.
“There has been a negative perception among people about police and this is a challenge to police. During the pandemic, the perception changed after police reached out and helped the people in need. But now the old perception is back. Why is public confidence not improving when it comes to police?” Modi asked, virtually addressing IPS probationers of the 71st and 72nd batch of Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel National Police Academy (SVPNPA), Hyderabad.
“For country’s security, implementation of law and during crushing terror, police give their life. This challenge to change the police image by ending the negative perception, now depends on you,’’ he said, comparing police with NDRF.
According to him, people have high respect for NDRF since they get confidence once they arrive during a calamity and that they risk their lives to save people.
The passing out parade for the 178 probationers, including 33 lady probationers, and 34 trainee officers from Nepal, Bhutan, Maldives and Mauritius would be held at NPA campus at Shirvrampalli on August 6.
Speaking about the challenges of cyber security and financial frauds, Modi said new research and experiments should be done and applied by police to avert the designs of criminals.
While addressing the trainee officers, Prime Minister Modi said that whether the trainee officers would change the system or the system would change them, would depend on them during their career.
“Whenever you are in field, whatever decisions you take, it must be in the country’s interest. You should always have the spirit of ‘Nation First, Always First’,’’ the PM said.
Modi said that the induction of more women into the police department would only strengthen the police force. Interacting with some of the trainee officers, PM Modi said that financial frauds, targeting of women and children by cyber criminals was a major challenge.
He also sought suggestions about what could be done to solve this issues by using technology.
Apart from doing their routine policing responsibilities, the PM suggested woman IPS trainees to occasionally visit local girl schools and interact with the students as it would motivate them to achieve their goals.

Funds to plasma, this duo helps patients with all | | Live Newspaper Hyderabad


Sanjana and her dad Manoj Raheja

HYDERABAD: Inspired by the work being done by his daughter, 55-year old businessman, Manoj Raheja, joined her in assisting families affected by the second wave of Covid-19.
Together, they have helped about 600 patients so far by arranging for oxygen cylinders, concentrators, ICU beds, blood etc. They even arranged for plasma donors at various hospitals, including getting 17 donors within two hours for a patient from Bokaro.
The duo has now moved on to organising funds for critical patients. “During the peak of the second wave, we worked round-the-clock, making calls and connecting those in need with the required resource persons. Whatever requirements came to us, we fulfilled them. At one point, we were given 40 concentrators by a donor that we distributed for free of cost on rotational basis,” said Manoj Raheja. His daughter, Sanjana Raheja, had been volunteering with some of her colleagues earlier.
In fact, it was during that time they received a distress call from a 17-year-old girl from Bhagalpur district. “She was trying her best to save her father who was suffering from liver cirrhosis and needed a liver transplant that would cost Rs 27 lakh. We got in touch with Sonu Sood Foundation through our references and convinced them to fund a part of the treatment. The remaining amount was arranged by us through family, friends and my daughter’s colleagues,” said the father.
The beneficiary said that the duo came to her as a blessing, since a crowd-funding initiative started earlier had failed to raise any money. “At that point we were ready to sell our house for my father’s treatment. But no one was ready to buy it because of the Covid-19 scenario. No one was even willing to give us a loan on interest. That’s when I started looking for NGOs and eventually got connected with Sanjana and Manoj uncle,” said Shanu Kumari. Her father’s surgery is complete, and he is now recovering at an apartment arranged by the volunteers.
Meanwhile, the father-daughter pair has two more liver transplant patients in the pipeline, who are awaiting funds. “As the second wave is on the wane, we aren’t getting many calls from Covid-19 patients. But since our number has been circulated among many people, other patients — including those in need of a transplant — are reaching out to us. We intend to help as many people as possible. It has now become my passion,” Manoj Raheja said.

GHMC to hunt down illegal dog breeders; 67 pet shops get | Live Newspaper Hyderabad


HYDERABAD: The GHMC and Veterinary and Animal Husbandry department (V&AH) have served notices to 67 pet shops and identified 12 dog breeders in the greater Hyderabad region in the last two weeks.
The notices were served to the pet shops and breeders after the principal secretary of MAUD, Arvind Kumar directed the GHMC commissioner Lokesh Kumar to take action against all illegal units and shut them down, if they don’t comply with guidelines of the Telangana State Animal Welfare Board (TSAWB).
In his letter, the principal secretary lambasted the GHMC for permitting the illegal breeders to operate saying that the civic body allowed them to operate illegally by bringing them under the ambit of pet shops.
However, when asked about the illegal breeders and those breeding dogs at home for commercial purposes, the official said, “In GHMC limits there are only 12 breeders. More than 90% of the dog breeders are outside GHMC limits. If people are breeding dogs at home, we cannot designate them as breeders. For breeding there should be kennels, space and there are other rules which need to be followed and that activity will not be tolerated in residential areas. To avoid these, GHMC’s instructions are to get the dogs sterilized.”
However, officials informed that while the GHMC can issue notices, as per the Pet Shop Rules, 2018 and Dog Breeding and Marketing Rules, 2017 rules, only the state animal welfare board has the authority to shut down or take any other action against illegal pet shops or breeding units.
Meanwhile, Dr Monika, assistant veterinary director, state animal husbandry department said, “We have received applications for registration from 77 pet shops in the city so far and prior to that 67 of them were served notices. Registration applications will be sent to the concerned district official to conduct inspections and give the inspection proforma to V&AH. Only if the inspection report is satisfactory, we issue the inspection certificate. So far, one or two inspections of pet shops have been taken up.”
GHMC has been directed to slap notices against the dog breeders, asking them to apply for registration. Failure to obtain registration by August 15 would mean closure.

Asymptomatic diabetes the new concern for Hyderabad | | Live Newspaper Hyderabad


HYDERABAD: In a worrying trend that has left health experts baffled, hundreds of asymptomatic diabetes cases are coming to light during routine health checks across Hyderabad with no tell-tale symptoms of blood sugar increase, said doctors.
Majority of new patients do not have any of the typical symptoms of diabetes like frequent urination, fatigue, excessive thirst or hunger, weight loss and blurry vision. Nutritionists and diabetologists say it could be linked to the change in food intake and limited or no exercise during the pandemic.

Take the case of 47-year-old Suhasini Kumar, who had a blackout at home for 45 seconds and her family insisted on a master health check-up the next day. “During the check-up, my blood sugar levels were higher. Since I don’t have a family history of diabetes, the doctors decided to go for a more fool-proof test which proved that I indeed have moderately high blood sugar,” Kumar who lives in Banjara hills said.
“It was a jolt for me as I never had the usual signs diabetes symptoms and had I not gone for tests, I would not have known that I am asymptomatic diabetic. Thankfully with change in food and lifestyle, I can reverse it, I am told,” she added.
Doctors say more and more people during the lockdown have developed higher blood sugar and are completely in the dark about it. Even overweight children as young as 12 years old are testing positive to asymptomatic diabetes and pre-diabetes.
“In the last one and a half year with restricted physical activity and same amount of calorie intake leading to drastic weight gain, we are seeing many people who come for regular check-ups and have a chance discovery of diabetes,” said K Sunitha Premalatha, chief dietician, Yashoda hospitals. She gave an example of chance discovery of pre-diabetes in a 23-year-old who came with leg swelling on Thursday. The boy’s mother too was detected to be diabetic during the check-up.
“When we ask for typical symptoms, they don’t have any but the common thing is restricted physical activity. Weight gain of 6-8 kg in a span of one year is seen in these patients,” she added. While a lot of importance is laid on weight gain, increase in waist size for keeping a check on diabetes, the awareness about pre-diabetes is also equally important, say doctors. Higher levels of stress during the pandemic have also played their role, believe doctors.
“The number one reason for diabetes is stress. Diabetes can be stress-induced, drug-induced or even Covid-induced. Whenever high levels of stress remain unaddressed in time, it brings out hidden diabetes and hypertension,” said Dr Ashish Chauhan, senior consultant diabetologist at Apollo Hospitals, who has seen 100 new cases since the pandemic. “Many patients also have vague symptoms like depression, irritation, drowsiness, insomnia and sexual dysfunction but they don’t know that it can be a symptom due to less awareness,” he added.

Telangana: Ex-sub-inspector dies as car falls into well | | Live Newspaper Hyderabad


HYDERABAD: A retired sub-inspector was killed after he lost control and drove straight into a huge well abutting the road at Chinna Mulkanoor village in Karimnagar district on Thursday.
Alerted by locals, cops and fire officials swung into action with no clear information on number people stuck in the car. It took 8 hours of rescue operation to finally bring out the submerged car with only the former SI’s body trapped inside.
District police said that the car driven by ex-SI Pappaiah Naik was speeding on the stretch between Kothapalli and Husnabad when it veered off the road and fell into the huge open well.
A video captured by locals showed the car slowly sinking. By the time police reached the spot and some locals jumped into the water, the car was invisible.
Later, officials of fire and revenue department came in and a crane was also brought to the spot. By then a huge crowd had gathered around the well.
Swimmers finally found the car but by then officials feared people inside would have long been dead.
Rescuers tied the car with a rope and pulled it out with great difficulty after more than 8 hours with the lone body inside. Till the car was brought out no one knew exactly how many were stuck in it.
A few passersby had earlier claimed to cops that there were three people in the car.
