We have never heard of anything like this in the past. Telangana Government has completely failed in case of protecting young mothers. What’s disgusting is, no one from TRS Government, neither CM KCR nor KTR, neither Health Minister Harish Rao nor local Minister Sabitha Indra Reddy have visited the victims families, even after such a major mishap,” fired Ibrahimpatnam former MLA Malreddy Ranga Reddy highlighting Government’s negligence.
