JAMMU, Feb 21: MLA RS Pura Constituency, Dr Gagan Bhagat, inaugurated a free eye camp organized by Dr KD Hospital Group in the premises of Radha Krishan Deewana Mandir at Ward No 5, for the poor and needy persons belonging to the rural and border areas of RS Pura.
This was the 10th free eye-camp at RS Pura Constituency organized by Dr KD Hospital within last one year in conjunction with Community Health Centre, RS Pura. The camp provided free of cost diagnostic and treatment facilities besides conducting cataract surgeries of poor patients with the active support of Dr Gagan Bhagat.
Appreciating strenuous efforts of the Hospital in offering free service to the needy and poor ailing persons, the ML A emphasized the need of holding such camps on regular basis in rural and far-off parts.“Service to mankind is service to God”, opined the Legislator while asking the doctors to redouble their efforts in providing succor to people.
He said that medical is a noble profession and sanctity of this pious institution should be upheld at all costs. “Doctors are considered as next to God so it becomes their prime concern to accomplish aspirations of people with all sincerity and honesty,” he said.
He further said that he wants to start an eye hospital at this border Sub-District of RS Pura to provide modern eye care to the people of the area. People need no longer go to Jammu or to neighboring Punjab for treatment, he maintained.
Later on Dr Gagan Bhagat toured the adjoining wards of Municipality No 5 and No 12 to ascertain the conditions of drains and the efforts of the municipality to remove the garbage and silt present in such large drains. The locals apprised the MLA of the difficulties they face when the drains get choked. The MLA assured them that very soon a proper plan for repairing and construction of drainage channels at RS Pura will take place.
