Arunachal governor arranges chopper for pregnant woman

Itanagar: Arunachal Pradesh governor Brig (Retd) BD Mishra arranged for evacuating a lady in urgent need of medical attention from Tawang to Itanagar by requisitioning an Army helicopter from the Air Force Station in Tezpur on Wednesday.
The governor, who was attending the ‘Maitree Diwas’ at Tawang on Wednesday, directed two of his officers to accommodate an expecting woman and her husband in their chopper after he heard about her condition from a conversation between chief minister Pema Khandu and Lumla MLA Jambey Tashi, Raj Bhavan sources here informed.
The condition of the patient was critical and was likely to be deteriorate as there was no chopper service from Guwahati to Tawang for the next three days.
The governor then asked the chief minister to arrange to send the patient to Itanagar in the helicopter he would travel. However, his helicopter, due to lack of fuel, could not fly directly to Itanagar and had to land at Tezpur for refuelling. After refuelling, the pilot noticed a technical snag in the chopper and the flight had to be aborted.
