MP Maganti Babu inspecting deserted ambulances in Eluru on Sunday

Eluru: MP Maganti Babu has expressed serious concern over the scrapping of hundreds of ambulances on the pretext of minor repairs.

He inspected deserted ambulances at government hospital here on Sunday. He said the ambulances were left unused even though they did not travel for a distance of one lakh kms. 

In Vijayawada,  about 140 ambulances (108 ambulances) were deserted on Eluru road as the vehicles need repairs. Without leaving such ambulances, it would be useful if they were put to reuse after necessary repairs. 

He asked the health department officials to prepare a list of such ambulances in the state and take steps for repairs if possible. 

If not possible, even if they auction the vehicles, it would fetch several crores of rupees which in turn could be spent on provision of new vehicles, he suggested.
