Hospital has fleeced its family of 28, claims M. Bharat
Rajamahendravaram MP Margani Bharat has pledged her support for the education of a 12-year-old boy who lost five of his family members, including his two parents, to COVID-19.
The boy, Medicharla Sai Satya Saharsa, lost his parents, M. Sudheer and Sweta Haritha, as well as his maternal grandparents and paternal grandfather.
Sai Satya is now in the care of his paternal uncle. Mr. Bharat paid the boy a visit after learning of his situation. The boy is a 7th grade student at a private school in the city of Rajamahendravaram. The boy’s father worked as a building contractor before switching to farming two years ago.
“The boy will receive 10 lakh funding according to the existing guidelines. I have given him the support he needs to keep going
studies by enrolling him in Kendriya Vidhyala. I have also committed to expanding my support in building his career and pursuing higher education, ”said Mr. Bharat. If the boy so wishes, he will be offered a place at Kendriya Vidyalaya during the current academic year, Mr. Bharat added.
The MP claimed that the city-based Subhadra Hospital billed 28 lakh for medical treatment for the boy’s family for COVID-19. “The management of the Subhadra Hospital had collected 28 lakh for medical fees without an invoice or payment history. I will appeal to health
Ministers and collectors to investigate the case and compensate the family, ”said Bharat.
