Health Min thanks people of Kandhamal for financial help to Jaga-BaliaBhubaneswar: Odisha Health Minister Pratap Jena on Thursday extended his gratitude to the people of  Kandhamal district in the state for donating their one-day salary for the treatment of twins Jaga-Balia, who were recently separated at All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS), New Delhi.

Previously, the Kandhamal district collector had asked all the government employees of the district to donate their one-day salary for the twins.

“I thank the people of the state, especially the residents of Kandhamal district who donated their one-day earning towards the surgery of Jaga-Balia. The money is with the district collector and it will be given to the parents of Jaga-Balia after they return from New Delhi for further treatment of the children,” said Jena while speaking to the reports.

Informing about the health condition of the twins, the Minister stated that the health condition of Jaga has improved a lot and he has started taking normal diet while Kalia, though still in the ICU, is showing improvement.

“Jaga’s condition is gradually improving. He has taken rice, daal, soup, fruit juice, water and honey. Now jaga is sitting on his mother’s lap comfortably without any support,” said Jena adding “Kalia is still in ICU, but he is also showing improvement. Yesterday, his physical movement of limbs was noticed,” said the Minister.

“We are all hopeful that both of them will limp back to normalcy soon as their heath condition is improving and the doctors have kept them under close observation,” he added.
