Naidu calls for easing procedures to regulate organ donation

NEW DELHI: Vice President M Venkaiah Naidu on Tuesday urged youth to overcome apprehensions and donate their organs, as he stressed the need for easing procedures to regulate organ donation in accordance with scientific standards.

Terming organ donation a “delicate and sensitive” process that requires patience and conviction, Naidu said that the new and aspirational India must give up superstitions and redefine its spiritual outlook according to the social context.

Addressing the gathering at ‘Deh Daaniyon Ka Utsav’ organised by the Visva Hindu Parishad here, he called upon the youth to overcome their apprehensions and take a pledge to donate their organs.

The youth, with their scientific outlook to Indian traditions, can convince the society to make organ donation a mission, the Vice President was quoted as saying by a statement. (AGENCIES)
