Agartala: Tripura CPI-M state secretariat on Monday sought intervention from the state government to provide adequate healthcare facilities in the wake of a sudden outbreak of malaria and vector-borne diseases in several locations of Dhalai district.

The party demanded the government to provide potable water and jobs under MGNREGA in the villages as the people have been facing a severe crisis for the past few months because of adverse weather conditions.

They alleged due to lack of work, the income of the villagers was affected which resulted in malnutrition and starvation in the villages.

Poverty and an unhygienic lifestyle led to the rapid spread of malaria in the remote and distant villages of the state.

“The spread of Malaria and other vector borne diseases intensified the crisis of medical facilities and other amenities. Most of the local primary health centers are running out of medicine while patients were advised to go to sub-divisional and district hospitals but no ambulance,” the party leaders stated in a release.

The party has demanded to arrange large-scale health camps immediately in malaria-prone areas and to send medical consignments on an urgent basis. Hospitals should be provided with sufficient quantities of essential medicines. In areas where there is no source of potable water or it is immobile, provision of potable water should be made by water tanker every day, it added.
