PULWAMA — The Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) on Saturday organized a free medical camp under its civic action program in Newa area of south Kashmir’s Pulwama district.
RD. Jeany Anal, the 183 battalion’s Commanding Officer, inaugurated the medical camp, wherein doctors gave free medicines to the patients apart from the consultation.
While speaking to The Kashmir Pulse, Commanding Officer RD. Jeany Anal said that the CRPF is always ready to provide assistance to the local population in the possible means.
“We have been conducting such programs and it feels good to see people coming in and benefitting from such initiatives,” Mr Anal said, adding that the people while lining up in large numbers in such camps, boost our morale to do more for them.
To a question about whether such camps were increasing the burden of the forces given their policing duties, the officer said that CRPF has been performing a varied set of duties apart from its primary job of maintaining law and order.
It is in place to mention here that a similar program was held by the 18 Battalion of CRPF in Qaimoh area of south Kashmir’s Kulgam district.
The medical camp was inaugurated by B A K Charusya, Commanding Officer, 18th Battalion, CRPF. In the camp, people were given health checkups, administered medicines, and provided medical guidance and medical kits free of cost.
