Shimla, May 16
As many as 17 medical vans, under the ‘Seva Hi Sangathan’ initiative, were flagged off for 12 districts of Himachal, by BJP national president JP Nadda. The vans containing three-ply and N-95 masks, gloves, face shields, PPE kits, oxygen masks, oxygen regulators and nasal cannulas will strengthen relief efforts in the state.
Lauding the efforts of Minister of State for Finance Anurag Thakur, Nadda said he had been working to provide relief in Himachal Pradesh since the Covid pandemic began and today he extended 17 ‘asptal mobile medical units’.
The initiative was started three years ago, and free medical tests and treatment to over 5.5 lakh people had been provided under it, said Anurag Thakur. He said three PSA oxygen plants would be set up in Una, Bilaspur and Hamirpur soon. Oxygen plants were also being set up under PM CARES, he said. Suresh Kashyap, state president, BJP, thanked Nadda and Thakur for the gesture.
