Imphal, 19 June 2017: To help poor patients suffering from renal (kidney) disease Chief Minister N Biren Singh today launched Pradhan Mantri National Dialysis Programme at JNIMS, Imphal.
Mr Singh said the scheme will help many patients as treatment of kidney related diseases is costly. He also appealed medical practitioners to treat the patients with a human touch. Those who are in medical profession can’t say “sorry” to their patients as their full time attention is required by the patients. People’s respect shown to doctors and nurses should not be let down.

Apart from JNIMS and RIMS, the government would start the Pradhan Mantri Dialysis Programme in all the district hospitals of the State soon. Chief minister further said, “I believe that if we discuss and work collectively, the rarest of the rare medical cases can be easily treated in the State.” Highlighting the various schemes and programmes initiated under the leadership of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, he said various welfare schemes have been implemented to reach out to the poorest of the poor in the country. He emphasised that the new government was formed with certain mission to bring development in the State and the government is committed to show and bring practical visible changes in the State.
The objective of launching various websites, anti-corruption cell and whatsapp numbers is to regulate and check the mistakes on the part of the government so that due punishment can be given to those persons or departments, he added.
