Dimapur, Sep. 19 (EMN): A free health check-up was organised by Nagaland State Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) under Sewa Pakhwada here at Chungaizaeng  Rongmei Colony, on Monday.

National Vice President of BJP, Dr. H Chuba Ao, who launched the Sewa Pakhwada programme, informed that the nationwide programme, which commenced on September 17, will conclude on October 2.

He informed that free health check up will be organised in all the 16 district of the state. A doctor and three nurses from Faith Hospital, Dimapur, came to examine treat the patients during the camp.

Vice President of State BJP, Peter Rutsa, while interacting with media persons said the programme, which was scheduled to start at 10 am, was postponed to 1 pm due to the issue raised by Rising People’s Party (RPP) in regard to the notification issued by Principal Director (PD) of Health and Family Welfare department.

Rutsa said the team incharge of the free health check up camp was not aware that “a political party cannot ask the help of the government to organise such programme.”

 “In the letter of RPP it was mentioned that the BJP of Nagaland gave directive to the department of Health & Family Welfare, which is totally false,” Rutsa claimed.

He also claimed that the state Health Minister only approached the PD, H&FW department, and asked him to assist the BJP.

 “BJP is arranging everything and we are just asking for assistance in those places where doctors are either unavailable or expensive,” he added.

When questioned about the upcoming programmes across the districts, he said the BJP team needs the assistance of the government to conduct health camps, especially in remote areas.

He appeals to the district CMOs to update the BJP team on their requirements, especially those in far distance districts, so that the party workers can bring medicines form Kohima and Dimapur.

“We never asked medicine and financial assistance from the Health & Family Welfare department,” Rutsa added.

Altogether, 60 patients turned up for the free health camp and availed various medical consultations and medicines.
