Jalandhar, April 5
Member of Parliament Santokh Singh Chaudhary handed over an air-conditioned ambulance van fully equipped with the life support system to the local Civil Hospital here today.
The ambulance has been purchased at a cost of Rs 28 lakh with a grant from his MPLAD funds. He had sanctioned the grant about a week ago.
Dedicating the ambulance to residents of the Jalandhar Lok Sabha constituency, Chaudhary said the ambulance was equipped with necessary modern facilities and would help people of the area in accessing medical help in emergency situations.
He said there was a requirement for a patient transport vehicle at the hospital and in the wake of Covid crisis, the funds were sanctioned immediately.
The Member of Parliament appreciated steps taken by the state government to deal with the pandemic and said under the leadership of Capt Amarinder Singh, the administration had taken all possible measures to provide the best healthcare and services to the public.
He asked the hospital administration to inform him in case of any requirement in the fight against the virus and assured doctors that they would be provided with all necessary equipment and facilities.
Deputy Commissioner Varinder Kumar Sharma, Commissioner of Police Gurpreet Singh Bhullar, Civil Surgeon Gurinder Kaur, Medical Superintendent Mandeep Kaur and Dr Gagandeep Singh were among those others who were present.
