The state government’s mega healthcare camp organised in tribal area of Nandurbar received an overwhelming response. According to the government, the three-day camp witnessed over 3 lakh patients enrolling themselves.
Maharashtra CM Devendra Fadnavis inaugurated the medical camp on Sunday (April 29), along with state Medical Education Minister Girish Mahajan, Guardian Minister of Nandurbar, Jaykumar Rawal, and Union Minister for Health Dr Subhas Bhamre who attended the event.
To boost the medical services in tribal areas like Nandurbar, CM Fadnavis proposed to build a 50-bed hospital.
Addressing the camp, CM Fadnavis said, “A state-of-art medical college will be set-up in the tribal district of Nandurbar so that the tribal can be provided with better medical services.”
Highlighting the efforts of the government, CM Fadnavis said the Nandurbar healthcare camp is an example of a government dedicated to work for its people.
“When the government works for the common people, then this (health care camp) happens. Nandurbar Healthcare camp, where over two lakh people have enrolled themselves within the first few hours, is an ideal example,” he added.
Appreciating Mahajan, CM Fadnavis said he started the movement of healthcare camps from Jalgaon and invited others to follow his footsteps.
“People’s response to this mega healthcare camp is mesmerising and it has broken all earlier records; this is huge. This camp has showed us the way and it is going to be a historic one. Every single patient who has enrolled here will get medical treatment and those who require immediate surgical intervention will be taken to Mumbai for further treatment,” Mahajan said.
Dr Bhamre also praised state government’s efforts to reach out to a large number of people under one roof through the mega health camp.
At the camp, around 4,000 eminent doctors across Maharashtra are providing the medical facilities to patients. Nandurbar is called as tribal district of Maharashtra wherein basic health-care facilities have not yet reached the tribals since independence. The aim of the mega camp in this area was to reach out to every one with better and state-of-the -art medical facilities.
