Agartala: May 17: Pressure is mounting on GBP Hospital, the state’s primary referral hospital, due to the high number of patients being referred from various subdivisions. In response, the government is focusing on enhancing the quality of subdivision and district hospitals to alleviate the strain on GBP Hospital.

Chief Minister Dr. Manik Saha made this announcement during a blood donation camp held on the 26th foundation day of Teresa Diagnostic Center. Inaugurating the camp, the Chief Minister emphasized the importance of blood donation, highlighting that there are eight blood groups in the human body.

Dr. Saha stressed the need for proper blood storage and encouraged blood donation, emphasizing the shared humanity that transcends caste, religion, and color.

The Chief Minister also praised the state’s advanced medical system and urged people to trust doctors, emphasizing their responsibility to earn that trust through their work and ethical behavior. He expressed optimism about Tripura’s future, highlighting improvements in communication systems and the government’s efforts to establish the state as a medical hub.

The blood donation camp was attended by other dignitaries, including Mayor of Agartala Municipal Corporation Deepak Majumdar, Health Department official Dr. Sanjib Debbarma, and Ramakrishna Mission Secretary Swami Shubhakarannanandji Maharaj, who encouraged blood donors.
