Constitutional right to a dignified life has no meaning for millions of people
Poor father had only 20 rupees with him when he was supposed to take this morning his 17 years old ailing daughter to Maharaja Agarsen Hospital, Punjabi Bagh from his residence at Pandev Nagar, East-Delhi (one side auto fare is R.170/-). A social worker came to their aid. This patient is being treated free in the Hospital under ews category. What has been seen in many cases is that even when the medical treatment is free, poor patients don’t have money for conveyance to go to the hospital and back to home. Constitutional right to a dignified life has no meaning for millions of people of our country.
