"The State Government has limited the number of diseases and ailments to be treated under Rajiv Arogyasri and watered down the welfare schemes"

YSR Congress Party organised a blood donation camp to mark the National Voluntary Blood Donation Day here on Monday. About 120 medical students donated blood at the camp.

YSR Congress women’s wing district convenor Tatineni Padmavathi, who inaugurated the camp, said that the blood donation was nothing but giving a new life to three persons in distress.

To help the needy was humanity, so the programmes like blood and eye donations were organised by the party. The most disturbing trend was that a culture and tendency to ignore the sufferings in the neighbourhood had set in among the people in society, she said, adding, it was indeed laudable that the medicos had come forward to donate blood. Former chief minister Y.S. Rajasekhara Reddy introduced 108 and 104 services and Rajiv Arogyasri.

The State Government has limited the number of diseases and ailments to be treated under Rajiv Arogyasri and watered down the welfare schemes, she alleged.

Mehboob Sheik of YSR Congress medical wing, steering committee members Nandamuri Srinivasa Ratnakar, Kadavakollu Narasimha Rao, Pathan Karimulla Khan, Viswanath, and others were present.
