A new case of government system apathy has emerged in Odisha. Where an elderly woman had to take her 100-year-old mother to the bank lying on the bed. Actually, the bank personnel had laid the condition of physical verification to give the mother’s pension, after which the woman took her mother to the bank. The video of the woman taking her elderly mother to the bank is becoming quite viral on social media.
It is seen in the video that the 70-year-old daughter is dragging her 100-year-old elderly and helpless mother on the bed by dragging her. No one came forward to help them, and the woman is single-handedly dragging the cot into the street. This incident is from Nuapada district of Odisha.
At the same time, after the incident came to light and the system was criticized, Nuapada MLA Raju Dholakia demanded strict action in this matter. The local MLA said that “We came to know about the incident through video, in which the woman is dragging her on a bed. He was being taken to a bank to withdraw his pension. I appeal to the government to look into the matter and take strict action against the culprits. ”
