Doctor Turned MLA Helps Woman Deliver Baby

Doctor Turned MLA Helps Woman Deliver Baby

Doctor-turned-politician Mizoram MLA ZR Thiamasanga is once again in the news. When the doctor was not present, Thiamasanga himself operated a pregnant woman and got her delivered successfully. MLA Thiamasanga was visiting the quake-hit remote areas of his assembly constituency Champhai district on Monday and was monitoring the situation of Covid-19. The region borders the neighboring country of Myanmar and is considered very backward.

According to Thiamasanga, a 38-year-old pregnant woman started suffering in Nagur village. The woman’s condition was becoming critical and Champhai’s health officer was on leave for health reasons. The woman was not in a position to reach the capital Aizawl 200 kilometers away. When I got information about this, I immediately reached the hospital and performed a successful delivery of the woman. Both mother and child are healthy.

This is not the first time that Thiamasanga has helped people as MLAs. The health of a jawan posted on the Indo-Myanmar border had deteriorated when he crossed the river and reached for treatment. Doctor Thiamasanga by profession contested on Mizo National Front (MNF) ticket in 2018 and defeated Congress MLA TT Jothansanga. Currently he is also the Vice Chairman of the Mizoram Health and Family Welfare Board.
