Chattisgarh: Amid the heavy rainfall and bad weather across many villages, a tribal woman on Monday was taken to hospital on a cot after she suffered snakebite in Mungeli district of Chanttisgarh.

As per Teerthraj Agarwal, Additional Collector in Mungeli, the lady was taken on a cot as there was waterlogged everywhere and it was nearly impossible for health officers and ambulance to reach her.

“It is quite difficult to reach the area and the health officials of the villages were cut off from there due to heavy rains,” he said adding that this was a very specific case and the water had filled the stream so she had to be taken on a cot.

He further mentioned, “Due to several National Green Tribunal (NGT) rules and the high cost of construction of about Rs 10-12 crore, the development proposals take time to pass. They will be sent to the authorities soon.”

Meanwhile, the India Meteorological Department on Monday predicted isolated heavy falls and thunderstorms very likely over Odisha and Chhattisgarh till Wednesday.

“Fairly Widespread/Widespread light/moderate rainfall with isolated heavy falls & thunderstorm/lightning very likely over Odisha and Chhattisgarh during 19th-21st; Jharkhand on 20th; Gangetic West Bengal on 19th; Vidarbha on 21st & 22nd; East Madhya Pradesh during 20th-23rd…,” IMD said in a series of tweets.
