Watch: Pregnant woman carried on makeshift basket through river in Chhattisgarh

A pregnant woman was carried on a makeshift basket through a river in a village in Chhattisgarh.

In the video, four men were seen carrying the women seated in a basket.

The incident took place in Kadnai village of Surguja in Chhattisgarh.

Ambulance could not reach the village due to lack of proper road connectivity.

The woman was later taken to the nearby government hospital.

β€œIt is not a matter of not having good health facilities.

There are a few remote villages where people find it difficult to commute during rainy days,” said Sanjay Kumar Jha, Collector, Surguja.

He added, β€œFor such remote places, we are planning to use small cars to reach people.

It will not be possible to reach residences of the people via cars but we will strive to reach as near their residences as possible to help the people in need.” Watch the full video for more details.

No district of West Bengal included in PMGKRA as state did not share data: Sitharaman

Union Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman on September 19 said that West Bengal government did not share data of returning migrant labourers with the Centre and no district of the state could be included as a beneficiary under the Pradhan Mantri Garib Kalyan Rozgar Abhiyan (PMGKRA). She was answering a query by Congress leader Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury in Lok Sabha. "Prime Minister Narendra Modi initiated PMGKRA for migrant labourers who came back to their villages during the coronavirus-induced lockdown. This scheme was introduced on June 20 this year and will be effective for 125 days. The minister said 116 districts spread across six states - Bihar, Madhya Pradesh, Jharkhand, Odisha, Uttar Pradesh and Rajasthan are benefiting from this scheme. The selection of the districts was made on the basis of the return of at least 25,000 migrant labourers to the concerned districts by May 30. After the launch of PMGKRA, there were demands from Tripura and Chhattisgarh to include more districts but it was not entertained. In the case of West Bengal, there was no data shared by the state government then how could the districts of the state be included in the scheme," said Sitharaman.
