On 11th April 2020, Saturday a request was received at the office of Hon’ble Minister of State of Railways Shri Suresh Angadi at Belagavi. A child of 5 years of age of Belagavi was undergoing treatment from a Doctor based at Pune.
The medicine was said to be critical and it was to be transported to Belagavi from Pune. Their appeals to Maharashtra State authorities to permit their relatives based at Pune to drive their vehicle to Belagavi to bring the medicine had gone in vain.
Sensing the gravity of the matter, Hon’ble Minister immediately directed the concerned Railways Officials of Pune to assist in this. The medicine was brought to Pune Railway Station, and thereby it was transported through a Goods Train, which was due to pass through Belagavi and further.
The staff of the train ensured that the medicine reach Belagavi safely the very next day. Further, Belagavi was also in lockdown due to the Covid19 situation.
Then the Railway Staff of Belagavi took the initiative to take the medicine closer to the home of the patient because the approach roads of the Station were blocked due to lockdown. Under the guidance and support of the Hon’ble MoSR Shri Suresh Angadi, turned out to be a saviour for the little kid.
