Health dept to take 3,970 inpatients to polling booths

Thiruvananthapuram: The heath department has tied up with the district administration to step up the voting percentage in the legislative assembly elections by extending special facilities to the disabled and the ailing. For the first time, the health department will arrange transportation facilities for 3,970 patients admitted in various government hospitals in the district to the polling booths.

“We have communicated this matter to the inpatients and we got a good response. Close to 4,000 in-patients will be taken to polling booths from hospitals by the health department volunteers and we are doing it for the first time,” said district medical officer K Venugopal.
