THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: Chief Minister Oommen Chandy on Thursday said ‘right to health’ was the need of the hour in the country. As part of the initiative of the state government for providing the best treatment to the public, he said that the government has initiated many programmes such as Karunya Benevolent Fund.

Though best treatment facilities were available in the country it was still not affordable to the common man, he said while addressing the IAS officers, who had come for training at IMG here.

Kerala, which was lagging in basic infrastructure development, was now leaping ahead. Kochi Metro, Kannur Air port and Vizhinam port are instances where the state has shown that it is far ahead in development activities, he said.

He pointed out the next aim was to make Kerala the first digitalised state in the country.

Chandy mentioned the achievements could not be attributed to any single person but was the result of collective efforts. “I am only leading the others. It is the collective effort of all that developments have come to the state,” he said.
