Baghel Government Fails to Tackle Renal in Chhattisgarh Village


Supebeda lies about a 100 km south of the district headquarter of Gariaband on Chhattisgarh’s border with Odisha. A small village with about 1000-1200 residents, nothing differentiates Supebeda from the other densely forested villages around it.
Except for the fact that nearly everyone in the village suffers from kidney ailments and is listed in government records as a “renal patient”.
Between 60 and 100 people have lost their lives in the last eight years due to renal failure – 69 in the past two and a half years according to a report in TOI. After a former sarpanch lost his life to a kidney-related ailment on Monday, the village was once again pitchforked into local news – a stark reminder for Chhattisgarh’s chief minister Bhupesh Baghel of his unfulfilled promise of action to the villagers.
