Sonia's gift to Indira Gandhi Eye hospital
Amethi, Dec 4 (UNI) AICC president and Rae Bareli MP Sonia Gandhi today presented an eye ambulance to the Munshiganj Indira Gandhi Eye Hospital.
Addressing a gathering at the hospital premises on the occasion of its first anniversary, Ms Gandhi said there were patients, who found it difficult to reach the hospital. ''The eye van would help bridge the gap,'' she added.
The eye van or ambulance would have all the facilities required for a thorough eye-checkup.
She said while it was difficult to operate in Uttar Pradesh, her son and Amethi MP Rahul Gandhi has worked hard towards setting up the hospital named after his grandmother.
''He wants to set up similar facilities across India,'' she claimed adding, the developmental work carried out in Amethi was now bearing fruits.
The AICC chief also asked the doctors and other workers at the hospital to work hard for the benefit of the common man.
Speaking on the occasion, the Amethi MP said darkness was like death and he wanted to provide the people ''life'' through the hospital.
