Newborn twins, who had developed Primary Immunodeficiency Diseases (PIDs) eight days after birth and were struggling to survive owing to respiratory problems, have been discharged from a hospital in Telangana’s Kurnool, thanks to a little help from Minister KT Rama Rao.

Popularly known as KTR, he has earned praise online for his timely intervention and assistance in saving the children’s lives.

Lakshman TH, father of the twins, told indianexpress.com that the two newborn babies had breathing difficulties and were admitted to a private hospital in Kurnool. “However, their sugar levels dropped and they were losing breath every 10 to 15 seconds. The treatment at the hospital was really bad and we were worried,” he said.

“We sought help from KTR and he referred us to another private hospital in Warangal. With his intervention, we got a concession of Rs 50,000 for the treatment and instead of Rs 2 lakh, we paid only Rs 1.5 lakh. After receiving treatment for a month, both the babies are breathing normally and have been discharged,” Lakshman added.

Sharing the photograph of the babies, KTR, the IT, Industries and Commerce and Municipal Administration and Urban Development Minister, wrote, “Nothing is more satisfying than seeing those children healthy Glad we could be of assistance.”

On November 15, a Twitter user and Telanagna Rashtra Samithi (TRS) party member tagged KTR and sought help. “Anna, their two twin children weighing 1.5 kg were born 8 days ago,they developed PIDs and are suffering from respiratory problems,both of them are in critical condition,plz hlp Anna..” tweeted Sreenu Pittala.
