Tripura Chief Minister Dr Manik Saha, soon after the Assembly polls were over, appealed to all sections of society to come forward and organize blood donation camps to mitigate the blood crisis in the State.
Recently, many hospitals in the State are reeling under a serious blood crisis causing problems in delivering healthcare services. The crisis was created due to the Assembly polls but public awareness of the requirement is growing now.
To overcome the crisis, special initiatives were taken by the ruling BJP’s youth wing, Government employees’ Bodies, private philanthropic organizations and other organizations.
As part of the ongoing initiatives, five voluntary blood donation camps were organized in Agartala on Sunday. Dr Manik Saha was present in the blood donation camps and encouraged the donors.
Taking to Facebook, Dr Saha wrote, “I am very happy that in response to my appeal, various clubs, social organizations and other organizations across the state are coming forward to donate blood voluntarily. Blood donation means a donation of life, voluntary blood donation is the only option to meet the need for blood”.
The Chief Minister pointed out, one blood donor can save the lives of more than one critical patient as by the separation of blood components, three-four patients can be saved.
He also referred to today’s Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s Mann Ki Baat programme where Modi urged people to donate organs voluntarily. Dr Saha appealed to people to come forward for organ donation also. The Chief Minister also urged the organizations, clubs, and commoners to join hands to build up Nesha Mukt Tripura.
