Similarly, they appealed to the minister to consider repairing of all the equipments along with the CT scan machine and provide necessary services to the patients.
The CPI leaders mentioned that the hospital is located adjacent to the national highway and receives a number of accident cases regularly. They said that Trauma facility in the hospital should be improved.
