For Katta Subramanya Naidu, surgery is not an option

Published: September 18, 2020

The resident medical officer of Victoria Hospital informed the Lok Ayukta special court on Saturday that surgery cannot be performed on former Katta Subramanya Naidu for clinical cervical discectomy because he was suffering from cancer. The court directed hospital authorities to give detailed information on Monday about the line of treatment that would be administered to the Katta for cancer.

It may be recalled that the resident medical officer (RMO) of Victoria Hospital, Dr Kantharaj, in the last hearing, had submitted to the court that the former minister had been recommended surgery for clinical cervical discectomy by Dr Balaji Pai, professor and head of the department of neurosurgery, Victoria Hospital.

Dr Kantharaj had filed an application along with the medical certificate and a 15-page case history of Katta. Judge NK Sudhindra Rao had accepted the application and directed the medical authorities to keep the court informed about the former minister’s medical progress.

Dr Kantharaj on Saturday informed the court that the surgery for the former minister at this point of time was not advisable. The reason cited was that Katta had undergone a lymph node cancer surgery in 2004. Thereafter, he underwent another cancer surgery in 2008. He had undergone chemotherapy treatment too.

Now, after the scans and the other tests they found that the cancer had regenerated and hence in these circumstances, surgery was not advisable.

Katta, his BBMP corporator-son Katta Jagadish, and MD of ITASKA Software Company, Srinivas, are facing charges of corruption cases in the KIADB scam.

All the three are facing charges of irregularities in land allotment of KIADB in BK Halli to the software company, which was reportedly floated by an aide of senior Katta.
