Speaking on the occasion, Jagan fumed at the TDP government for not providing even medical expenses to kidney patients. He demanded that the government should set up a dialysis unit in each primary health centre (PHC) to provide better service to kidney patients and government has to bear the expenses incurred by the patients. Jagan vowed to raise the issue in the Assembly session. He said he would demand that the government should provide relief to kidney patients bothmedically and financially.
He assured that the YSRCP government will provide Rs 10,000 as monthly pension to kidney patients after winning the 2019 general elections.
