Ara : Bihar Governor Fagu Chauhan on October 20, 2019, inaugurated a Mega Health Check-up camp at Kali Temple at Bakhorapur under Barhara block in Bhojpur district. Elaborate security arrangements were made by Bhojpur district administration for the visit of the Governor.
Addressing the gathering, Governor Fagu Chauhan wished the people a happy Dipawali and Chhath. He also congratulated the organisers for organising such a big health camp. The Governor also prayed and worshiped at the Kali temple at Bakhorapur. He said that he felt proud in coming to the land of Babu Kuer Singh, the legendary freedom fighters of the first war of Independence in 1857.
Union Minister of State for Health and MP from Buxar parliamentary constituency Ashwini Kumar Choubey urged the organisers to continue their mission and hold such health check- up camps at regular interval.
Although the Mega Health Camp was organised for the benefit of common people particularly the poor but they were allegedly not allowed to enter the camp venue due to security reason. They reached there but were prevented from going towards the venue and had to return disappointed though the organisers claimed that over 1,000 persons were examined and given medicine free of cost at the camp.
The organisers had earlier claimed that at least 400 Allopath, Homeopath, Ayurved and Yunani doctors from Patna and Ara would examine the people at the camp but most of the doctors from Patna and Ara did not turn up and those who participated came late and returned to Patna after the Governor left the venue.
