At a time when the medical system in Uttar Pradesh is under fire for insensitivity towards patients, the dedication of a doctor in Kapur has left everyone awestruck.
Dr Ajit Mohan Chaudhary has been treating patients for free from past one month. Dr Chaudhary has opened a makeshift hospital on a footpath to provide medical care to the poor people.
"I am sitting here from one month. I treat all kinds of patients. I even distribute sample medicines free of cost. If the cases complicate I show them a path," said Ajit Mohan Chaudhary told ANI.
And now, Prime Minister's Office (PMO) has taken cognizance of his services.
"I received a call from the Prime Minister's office and they wanted to have verification of Ajit Mohan Chaudhary, who has been treating patients without taking any fee," said Surender Singh, District Officer to ANI
Meanwhile, patients visiting Dr Chaudhary also expressed their gratitude towards his service.
"I have a heard a lot of about Doctor Chaudhary so I am here for a checkup. I wish more doctors should start thinking like Doctor saab," said a patient
"He is a very good doctor. People are being benefited," said another.
According to media reports, Dr Chaudhary's daughter is also a physician in Singapore and his son is an IIT engineer and yet he has chosen to serve the people on the curb. Every doctor in India should do the same for the welfare of the society, Dr Chaudhary told ANI.
The Uttar Pradesh health sector has been facing flak of media and people due to Gorakhpur children deaths and recent Jhansi hospital incident, where doctors had allegedly used a severed leg of a bus-accident patient as his pillow.
