The Kula Vivaksha Porata Sangam has urged the authorities to make the CT scan fully functional at the Rajiv Gandhi Institute of Medical Sciences (RIMS). KVPS Prakasam District Secretary A.Malyadri told reporters here that weaker sections of people could ill-afford to go to private labs.

RIMS Director B.Anjaiah said the firm entrusted with its maintenance was not attending to technical snags as maintenance charges to the tune of Rs 43 lakh were due to the firm.
