With the long-pending demand for a cancer centre in Kochi yet to take off, Charles Dias MP has written to Health Minister V S Sivakumar seeking his immediate intervention in the issue.

In his letter, he said the appointment of an agency to prepare the Detailed Project Report (DPR) alone would not push the project forward.

With the Lok Sabha polls round the corner, he stressed the urgent need to prepare a report with necessary details and required funds and submit it to the Central Health Ministry with the support of Union Minister K V Thomas in whose constituency the project is to be implemented and with the support of every Central ministers from Kerala.

“I also urge the Central Government to provide sufficient financial support and help the project materialise at the earliest,” he stated.

Meanwhile, the volunteers of Justice V R Krishna Iyer Campaign for Cancer Centre has written to Chief Minister Oommen Chandy for his immediate intervention to allocate sufficient funds in the Union Budget slated for Monday.
