Telangana: Incessant rains throw normal life out of gear at several places in state

In Telangana, incessant rains have thrown normal life out of gear at several places in the state. Drone technology coupled with the help of an Asha worker, has come to the rescue of a boy who is ill, in a marooned village of Kamaraeddy district.

A boy in Kurthi village of Kamareddy district in Telangana has received medicines through a drone in emergency while his village has been cut off from the rest of the places due to inundation. Normal life has come to a standstill especially in the villages near Sriramsagar Project after opening its gates as the reservoir is receiving heavy inflows due heavy rains in the state.

Kanhaiah son of Miriyala Gangaram resident of Kurthi village, required medicines in emergency due to ill health. The district officials have sent medicines to him by using a drone and taking help from a Asha worker, Mangamma, when there was no way to take him to hospital.

The villagers have thanked the district officials for sending medicines during emergency. It may be recalled that the “medicines from the sky” programme has recently been launched in Vikarabad district of the state on a trial basis.
