Port Blair, Dec. 5: The PCC President Shri Kuldeep Rai Sharma while appreciating the efforts of the A&N Administration towards earmarking the specialized hospitals at Kolkata and Chennai for specialized treatment of our patients, is in the opinion that such hospitals need to be earmarked at Vizag also. Since a large number of population of Telegu Community are residing in these islands, when referred to Kolkata or Chennai, the community has to suffer a lot in a new place where they also have to arrange their boarding, lodging and transport on their own.

The PCC President expressed that in case they are referred to any specialized hospital at Vizag, they will feel much comfortable. Hence Sharma has requested the Lt Governor to consider earmarking a few specialized hospitals at Vizag where patients of the Telegu Community may be referred.
