RAJOURI, Nov 5: BJP senior leader and MLC Vibodh Gupta today visited far off areas of Kalakote and enquired about the health of some cancer patients at their homes.
During this visit, he visited the home of Jagdish Raj at village Saranoo and Ravi Kumar at village Potha. Both these patients are suffering from cancer and are seriously ill.
While interacting with the patients and their families Vibodh assured full support to them for the proper treatment of both the patients. For some immediate medical care and attention, Vibodh announced an amount of Rs 50,000 out of his CDF for each of these patients.
While addressing the locals at Potha, Vibodh said that despite the overburdened healthcare services, India is still one of the top three destinations for medical tourism in Asia. He said that the reason for this is the availability of highly skilled doctors, quality healthcare infrastructure and low cost of the treatment. He urged everyone in the society to help the poor and needy especially when someone is in need of help for curing a serious disease.
He also highlighted various programmes of the Government in the health sector which have made healthcare accessible, efficient and cheap for all. He informed that within next two years Rajouri will have its own medical college and this will help in providing world-class healthcare facilities to the locals of this area.
Among others present were Rakesh Raina, Purshotam Singh, Suresh Kumar, Manhit Singh, Pawan Kumar and Mukesh Kumar.
