Demand for urgent steps to check JE

By Staff Reporter

GUWAHATI, July 15 - Asom Gana Parishad (AGP) on Monday demanded urgent steps to check the spread of Japanese Encephalitis (JE) in the State. Warning the State Government not to play with the lives of the common people, the party demanded immediate steps to extend proper treatment facilities to the people and generate awareness among them to prevent the spread of the disease, which has assumed an epidemic form in several parts of the State.

In a statement issued by its general secretary, Dr Kamalakanta Kalita, the party has alleged total failure on the part of the State Government to check the spread of the disease. Moreover, the State Government has also failed to extend medical care to those who are suffering from this disease, the regional party alleged.

The disease has already assumed dangerous proportions in Mangaldai, Golaghat, Kamrup, Majuli, Lakhimpur and other places and taken a toll of over 20 human lives so far. This is the result of the total indifference demonstrated by the Health Minister of the State towards the need to take steps for bringing the situation under control.

Significantly, in different parts of the country, this disease could be eradicated with proper preventive measures. But the State Government in Assam is displaying total listlessness to bring this disease under control despite it emerging as a factor responsible for the loss of a good number of human lives every year. The State Government is confining itself only to the issue of advertisements on the disease, alleged the regional party.
