Gadkari said, “During the pandemic period, transportation of oxygen and bringing it from other states was a big challenge. We transported empty trucks in aircraft and sent them to Visakhapatnam and brought them filled with oxygen. There were only 17,000 ventilators in the country at that time. That time we could understand lacunae in the health vertical of the country.” He stressed on cancer prevention and making its treatment affordable for patients.

“Today somewhere there is a lack of facilities, if we have medicines, they are costly. Treatment and costly tests are not affordable to everyone. Leaders, party activists and people should stand with those who are serving the society.”
