Talking to mid-day Dr Kakde said, “Many of these people are suffering from blood pressure, sugar, and other seasonal illnesses. In the current situation, as most of the local clinics and dispensaries are closed, people approach hospitals. Even though government hospitals are open and providing the services, looking at the busy schedule followed by the people in essential services, we have decided to take care of them and provide this facility. All personnel coming to the hospital for free examination or medicine has to show their own identity card issued by their concern department."
