Jamnagar's MP Poonamben Madam falls into eight-foot drain during demolition drive

Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) MP from Jamnagar Poonamben Madam fell into an 8-foot deep drain where she had gone to oversee a demolition drive.

41-year-old Madam fell into an 8-feet deep drain when a thin concrete crust covering it cracked under her feet and suffered a gash on her head.

Police said she was standing on the concrete sheet which was made to cover the drain while meeting people when it broke and she fell.

According to her doctor, S Maheshwari, the leader suffered a 4-inch deep gash on her head and has hurt her shoulder and foot.

Madam had gone to meet the residents of Jalaram slum who were opposing to the demolition drive and had entered into an altercation with the employees of the Jamnagar Municipal Corporation (JMC).

The drive was being conducted by the Jamnagar Municipal Corporation at the Jalaram slum. The residents were not letting the employees carry the demolition upon which Madam rushed to the spot to talk to them.

 

 

Madam's doctor said that her condition was stable.

"She has suffered a 4-inch wound on her head that caused bleeding which is now under control. We have not detected any fracture in X-Ray reports but CT scan remains to be done," Maheshwari said.

"She has hurt her left shoulder but has not sustained a fracture. All in all, her condition is stable, her vitals normal, and she is conscious and there is nothing to worry about. She will be able to go home earliest by tomorrow morning", he said.
