Aizawl: At a time when medicos are heavily deployed in Covid-19 duty across the country, one doctor turned politician come forward to help woman during her labour pain in Aizawl. The politician, ZR Thiamsanga, who was visiting the earthquake-hit areas of the remote Champhai district, performed an emergency cesarean and helped a woman delivered when Thiamsanga was told that no doctor was available to attend to her during her distress period. 

Thiamsanga, who is a doctor by profession, who specialises in obstetrics and gynaecology, often puts on his stethoscope to attend to medical emergencies in remote areas in order to save lives of villagers. At the time of incident, Thiamsanga was on a visit to his constituency, Champhai North near the Myanmar border, on Monday to assess the damages caused by the recent earthquakes and take stock of the COVID-19 situation.

Understanding the situation as Champhai hospital medical officer was on leave, and the victim, C Lalhmangaihsangi (38) from the remote Ngur village, who was expecting her second child, and her condition was critical  as she was bleeding profusely,  doctor tuned politician came forward himself to perform cesarean to save the life of mother and baby. The woman who was bearing labour pain 
was not in a position to travel to Aizawl, about 200 km away. 

“When I was informed about the condition of the woman, I immediately rushed to the hospital and performed an emergency caesarean, he added, the mother and the baby are physically and mentally fit after operation,” said Thiamsanga.  

It may be recalled that in June, Thiamsanga   hit the headlines when he rushed to attend to an ailing security personnel guarding the India-Myanmar border, crossing a stream and walking several kilometres. He contested the 2018 election on a Mizo National Front (MNF) ticket and defeated sitting Congress MLA TT Zothansanga.
He is at present also the vice-chairman of the state Health and Family Welfare Board.
