Virudhunagar, Mar 26:
Very recently, Dairy Development Minister K.T.Rajendra Balaji when heading for a temple, came across a family of two, including a girl child, and also another person, were literally fighting for their life after both of their motorbikes collided. The minister on seeing them on a main road, near Thiruchuzhi, immediately took them in his car to a nearby Government Hospital and saved their life.
According to sources, the Minister K.T.Rajendra Balaji was returning in his car from Sathur after filing his nomination papers and was heading for Kollangudi Kaliyamman Temple via Thiruchuzhi when he saw the three injured persons lying on the road. There was none to help them out in taking them to the hospital for treatment.
Rajendra Balaji on seeing the three, asked the driver of his car to stop the vehicle, and took them all in his car along with him and admitted them to the Thiruchuzhi hospital for immediate treatment.
When many would shy away in taking the injured persons with protruding blood, the timely intervention of the Minister in taking them in his own car had won the appreciation of many.
According to police sources it was learnt that the injured were Bala Murugan and his daughter Selvarani, both native of Mangulam village, Tiruchuzhi Taluk. The details about the other person who had also sustained injuries in the collision was not yet known, but had been undergoing treatment at the hospital, the police said.
