KCR Announces Rs 1,000 Pension To Filaria Patients

Hyderabad | 9th February 2018
Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao has decided to give Rs 1,000 per month as pension to people suffering from lymphatic filariasis (filaria).

Speaking after a review meeting on public health at Pragati Bhavan on Friday, the CM announced that some 47,000 people suffering from lymphatic filariasis would be given the pension from the coming financial year, and that allocation would be made in the budget for the purpose.

The CM also said that medical diagnostic tests would be offered to the people in the state at the government's cost with the village as a unit as the government believed in the dictum that prevention was better than a cure. He also instructed the officials to prepare an action plan to utilize the services of medical employees and staff at the village level optimally.

The CM, who had earlier enhanced the salaries of the Asha workers, also announced the enhancement of the salaries of second ANMs.

He said that through all these measures Telangana would become a role model in public health in the entire country.

For the uninitiated, recently minister Tummala Nageswara Rao and Nizamabad MP K Kavitha represented to the CM that in the constituencies they were representing many people were suffering from filaria and were not able to even walk. They wanted the government to take steps to prevent the spread of the disease and help those suffering from it. Those requests led to the decisions in the review meeting today.
