This is the third of its kind eye hospital run by Rahul Gandhi Charitable Trust (RGCT), the other two are at Amethi and Lucknow. RGCT was established in 2002 as a non-profit organization, to treat the under privileged of the country especially the rural poor.
The BPL families will be provided free service at this hospital and other patients will be provided up to 70 per cent subsidized treatment depending upon their income, said the sources.
The visit by top Congress leader, shows the significance of that region, which was once a strong hold of Congress but is now loosing the grip there. Rahul was very keen in making the trip apolitical.
