Jaipur: Taking forward his socio-medical project, VHP leader Dr Praveen Togadia yesterday launched India Health Line in Rajasthan aiming to provide free health facilities to the people across the country.
Addressing the inauguration ceremony at Jaipur Medical Association auditorium here, he said the project was aimed at reaching out to the poor and needy people through timely and free consulting by medical fraternity.
“I discussed the idea with large number of doctors in 80 cities during last three years and asked whether they would like to see one needy patient a day free of cost.
“I got a good response after which the project was launched in Delhi, Indore, Bhopal, Hyderabad, Ahmedabad, Nagpur, Pune and now in Jaipur,” Togadia said.
Specialist doctors like Cancer surgeons, Cardiologists, Gynecologists, Nephrologists, Urologists and others will provide free consultation to one patient every day and the needy can reach them by calling 18602333666, the International Working President of VHP said.
