Koraput, Oct 27: Andhra Pradesh Health Department on Friday organised a Mega Health Camp in Odisha’s Kotia group of villages.
Doctors with paramedical staff examined the health conditions of the locals living in the Kotia group of villages and distributed them essential medicines free of cost.
Sources said in another effort to woo the people of the Kotia group of villages towards the Andhra Pradesh administration, the health officials of the neighbouring state organised a Mega Health Camp in the Dhulipadar village. The initiative was undertaken as a part of Jagananna Arogya Surakshya scheme wherein the locals of the neighboring villages including Upparsembi, Talasembi, Neredibalsa and Tadiwalsa undertook their health checkups. The staff of the Tanam coounity health centre (CHC) under the Salur Block in Andhra Pradesh managed the health camp and provided essential medicines to the locals.
The Andhra Pradesh government has been creating administrative disruptions in the Kotia group of villages in Odisha, situated on the Andhra- Odisha border, in order to prove its dominance in the Kotia area. A few days ago, Andhra officials had faced the rage of local public representatives as they organised a free health check-up camp in the Fatusinery village.
