One of the deceased belongs to Belpahar in Jharsuguda district, and the other two belong to Bargarh district.

Reportedly, the doctors conducted caesarean section on nine women on Saturday. The women were kept in the observation room after this operation.

But, three of them reportedly died one after the other immediately when they were shifted to the observation room. The doctors suspect the deaths could have taken place due to the side effects of medicines provided by the government to the hospital.

Following the incident, the supply of medicines by the government to the Gynaecology ward of the hospital were ceased.

“The post-surgery condition of the three women was all right. But their condition deteriorated suddenly after taking the medicines. After a bout of severe vomiting, they foamed and died suddenly. We suspect the death could be due to the reaction of the drugs administered on them,” Dr Lalmohan Nayak, assistant professor, Gynaecology, reportedly said.

It is noted that before 2 years, nine newborn babies have died at the VSS Medical College and Hospital in Burla in the 24 hours.

Prohibitory Order Imposed In Sambalpur

Keeping in view the ensuing Hanuman Jayanti festival, prohibitory orders have been in Sambalpur to ward off any threat to religious harmony.

“Provisions of section 144 CrPC is hereby imposed prohibiting carrying / display of arms during the religious and other processions in Sambalpur in order to preserve public safety, public peace and for maintenance of public order”, an order issued by Sambalpur District Magistrate.

Carrying of arms during religious processions in the town had witnessed communal tension thereby jeopardising law and order situation in certain areas in the past. Taking serious account of such situation, the district administration in various peace committee meetings had also advocated not to carry arms during religious and other processions.

However, in spite of such decision, the procession led by some organisation were deliberately trying to disturb the peace and tranquility of the town defying the order.

“It has been made to appear to me that such religious processions are likely to lead to communal dis-harmony in Sambalpur town in future if any organisation succeed in carrying/display of arms during procession,” the order said.

Hanuman Jayanti, scheduled to be observed on April 14, is celebrated in a big way in this region.

Two places for IIM in Western Odisha, State Govt.

With the increasing demand to set up IIM in Western Odisha, the State Govt. recommended two places in sambalpur to the Center
for setting up the permanent campus of the proposed educational institution based on a report of Sambalpur Collector.

The two sites are in Dhankouda and Jujumura blocks of the district. Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik had written to the Centre on March 2 for setting up IIM at Sambalpur in response to Union HRD Minister Smriti Irani’s letter seeking opinion of the State Government for establishment of the institute in Western Odisha.

In the letter, the Chief Minister had said if the Centre is willing to relax guidelines for site selection, the State Government would strongly recommend Sambalpur as the location of the IIM.

Earlier, the HRD Ministry, as per its guideline, had asked the State Government to identify locations for the IIM close to an airport. The State Government had restricted its choice to places in  and around Bhubaneswar while making recommendations.

The State Government had recommended two places on the outskirts of Bhubaneswar for establishment of the IIM. The site selection committee of the HRD Ministry had also visited the two sites and recommended its findings.  It remains to be seen whether the Centre relaxes its guidelines for setting up the premier educational institution in view of the fresh recommendation made by the State Government.

Politics in Sambalpur for coming Polls

Political parties are playing game in Sambalpur by showing many dreams by their capabilities.

Ahead of elections to the Sambalpur municipal corporation, CM Naveen Patnaik on Monday recommends the Centre to set up the proposed Indian Institute of Management (IIM) in Sambalpur under relaxed guidelines.

In a letter to Union Human Resource Development (HRD) Minister Smriti Zubin Irani, Patnaik said: “If central government is willing to relax this guideline for site selection, then the state government strongly recommends Sambalpur in western Odisha as the location of IIM, Odisha.”

Earlier, the state government following the HRD ministry’s guidelines, had recommended setting up the proposed IIM in Bhubaneswar.

“I would like to inform you that while recommending the sites for IIM, the state government was constrained by the fact that the location should be close to an airport as per guidelines circulated by the HRD ministry,” said the chief minister.

He said the guidelines restricted the government’s choice to places in and around Bhubaneswar.

In a separate letter to Union External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj, Patnaik urged the setting up of two new Passport Seva Kendras (PSK) at Sambalpur and Berhampur.

Stating that the only PSK in Odisha, located at Bhubaneswar, serves 30 geographically dispersed districts, he said the citizens of western and southern districts experience immense difficulties in obtaining passports.

In 2014, about one lakh passports were issued by the PSK.

However, the Opposition Congress and BJP smelt politics in the government move.

“The central government had asked them to identify three places to set up an IIM in Odisha. But it identified two places in Bhubaneswar, ignoring the demand of Sambalpur. As Sambalpur will go to polls soon, there is a political intention behind the letter of the CM,” said BJP spokesperson Suresh Pujari.

Congress leader Pradip Majhi said Naveen Patnaik has embarked on election campaigning for Sambalpur.

Recently, Naveen Patnaik announced Rs.1,600 crore for various development projects in Sambalpur and also laid the foundation stones of various projects.
