Warangal: There is an imperative need for increasing the number of blood banks run by the Indian Red Cross Society (IRCS), Telangana Chapter of Indian Red Cross Society chairman BV Papa Rao said, speaking at the State managing committee meeting on Wednesday.

Speaking on the occasion, Prakash Reddy said that he would strive hard for strengthening the IRCS with impetus on serving the distressed sections. “We will try to get national level importance with the support of outgoing chairman Papa Rao,” he said.
Warangal Chapter IRCS chairman P Vijaychander Reddy detailed the programmes conducted in his region through power point presentation. Later, the IRCS managing committee met the Governor ESL Narasimhan. The Governor told the committee to bring accolades to Telangana at the national level.
