Aizawl: Mizoram governor PS Sreedharan Pillai felicitated ruling Mizo National Front (MNF) MLA and state health and family welfare board vice chairman Dr ZR Thiamsanga for his noble deeds in saving the lives of a pregnant woman and her baby by performing an emergency caesarean, Raj Bhanvan sources said.
The governor honoured the leader with an appreciation letter and gifts, sources said.
Earlier in August, Thiamsanga had hit the headline when he performed an emergency surgery and helped a woman deliver a baby when he was told that no doctor was available to attend to her.
The 62-year doctor-turned-politician, who is also the chairman of medical operational team on Covid-19, was on a visit to an earthquake-hit Champhai district bordering Myanmar to assess the damages caused by the recent earthquakes and take stock of the COVID-19 situation.
On August 16, Thiamsanga had volunteered to perform an emergency caesarean at Champhai district hospital and helped a 38-year-old C Lalhmangaihsangi from remote Ngur village in the same district deliver her baby.
In June, the legislator also won praises from netizens when he rushed to attend an ailing security personnel guarding the India-Myanmar border, crossing a stream and walking several kilometres.
A doctor by profession specialised in obstetrics and gynaecology, Thiamsanga gave up regular practice after his entry into politics in 2018.
He contested the 2018 assembly polls on a MNF ticket from Champhai North seat and defeated the sitting Congress MLA TT Zothansanga.
He is one of the greatest contributors in the fight against the spread of novel coronavirus in Mizoram.
