Film actor and Lok Sabha MP, Shatrugan Sinha, laid the foundation stone on the first ever Cancer Awareness, Primary Check-Up and Consultations Center that is located on the Galgaliya Main Road, near the National Highway 327 E of Deviganj, Khoribari Block.
“The Rural Sneh Foundation has taken a commendable step. The people will benefit from this center. I thank all the people who are associated with the Foundation. This is an admirable move; especially because of how fast the number of cancer patients is increasing every day,” Shatrugan Sinha said.
S.Kumar, a member of the Foundation said, “This Center, that is spanned across 2.5 acres of land, will be focusing on the relief measures and primary check for incurable diseases like cancer. It will benefit many people from the border areas of Bangladesh, Nepal and Bhutan as well. It will also be the first of its kind in Bihar.”
Former Maharashtra Chief Minister Sharad Pawar was also supposed to be at the foundation-stone laying ceremony, but he could not make it to the event due to some reasons.
Local MLA Naushad Alam, Shakeel Ahmed Khan, DC Thakur, members of Rural Sneh Foundation and other people were also present during the ceremony.
