Bhubaneswar: Delivery of healthcare services both in rural and urban areas is in a shambles, alleged Leader of Opposition Narasingha Mishra.

Mishra’s statements came after a pregnant woman was shifted to a hospital on a ‘bamboo raft’ owing to floods in Kalyansinghpur block in Rayagada district here on Friday.

The shocking visual of the woman being transported to hospital in such temporary arrangement has sparked widespread resentment over lack of adequate infrastructure in case of emergency situation.

Sources said, locals had made such arrangement to shift the pregnant lady after the bridge had collapsed due to floods.
