State To Shift Twins

With AIIMS Bhubaneswar expressed its unwillingness to take care of Odisha’s conjoined and now separated twins Jaga and Kalia, State Government has decided to bring them to SCB Medical College and Hospital for their further care.


While AIIMS New Delhi was inclined to send them to AIIMS Bhubaneswar, but authorities in AIIMS Bhubaneswar were not in a mood to take care of the Twin.
 
And Twin’s parents were also in no mood to stay in AIIMS New Delhi for more time and they want to return to Odisha.
 
Under this backdrop, Health and Family Welfare Minister Naba Kisore Das said that the State Government has decided to shift them to SCB Medical College and Hospital as AIIMS Bhubaneswar has said ‘NO’ to take care of the Twins.
 
Officials say that AIIMS Bhubaneswar authorities have informed the State Government about their inability to take the twins as there is lack of facilities here.
 
Authorities said that after elaborate discussion with all the stake holders including Neurosurgeon, Pediatrician, Pediatric surgeon, Critical Care Specialist, Medicine Specialist and Rehabilitating Specialist, it was found that shifting separate conjoined twins to AIIMS Bhubaneswar is not possible.
 
Twins require advance care facilities, which are not available in AIIMS Bhubaneswar, said sources.

So State Government has decided to shift them to SCB Medical College and Hospital under the care and guidance of the Neurologists and its Team, said Mr.Das.
 
The twins hailing from Kandhamal district are under the treatment of a team of specialists at AIIMS, New Delhi since their separation in a marathon surgery in October 2017.

"We are making arrangements for the return of Jaga and Kalia, as State Government is committed to take care of the twin” Mr.Das told Media.

The children's father Bhuyan Kanhar recently alleged that the State Government, which had sanctioned Rs 1 crore from the Chief Minister's Relief Fund for the twins' treatment, is not taking steps for their return.

After a State Government delegation visited the two in June, a senior Government Official had said Jaga and Kalia were likely to return to Odisha in mid-July as the doctors of New Delhi have declared the twins are "clinically well" and do not need ICU care.

The twins' parents said they have been staying at the AIIMS, New Delhi since July 2017 leaving their old parents and two other children at their Milipada village in Kandhamal district and are waiting to return.

Mr.Kanhar, however, expressed his gratitude towards Odisha Government saying the State Government has done a lot for us and is still helping.
 
Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik has gone out of the way to help out the twins and now the State will take care of the separate conjoined twins at SCB Medical College and Hospital.
