Patna: Energy and Commercial Tax Minister Vijendra Singh Yadav, at a function in Patna on Wednesday, flagged off 20 ambulances with a price tag of nearly Rs. 1.74 crore donated by the Power Grid Corporation of India, Ltd, under the Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) scheme.

Yadav officially handed over the ambulances to the state Health Department while commending the Power Grid Corporation for this very generous act of theirs.

"Power Grid had previously donated six ambulances in the past and with 20 more ambulances, they have made it clear that they care about the people and are aware of their social responsibilities," the minister said.

Despite poor condition at nearly all government hospitals in the state, including the decaying Patna Medical College and Hospital (PMCH), Yadav praised the Nitish government for bringing sweeping changes in the state's health care system.

Health Secretary R K Mahajan also praised the Power Grid for its humanitarian concerns saying the ambulances would prove to be a boon for patients who currently have to struggle to find a quick way to get to the hospital.

Power Grid Managing Director S N Sahay, Project Managing Director U P Sinha, and other senior officials were also present on the occasion.
