KOCHI: Seeking support to set up a full-fledged cancer centre with international standards here, the volunteers of Justice V R Krishna Iyer campaign for cancer centre met Union Health Minister Dr Harshvardhan at Nedumbassery on Monday. On behalf of Justice V R Krishna Iyer, a memorandum was submitted by Dr Sanil Kumar, one of the volunteers of the campaign along with BJP state secretary A N Radhakrishnan. Dr Sanil Kumar said that the Health Minister assured that he would take up the issue with Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

The volunteers pointed out that though the  foundation stone was laid for the cancer centre worth `450 crore at Kalamassery, there has not been any follow-up on the project. At this juncture, the state government is moving ahead with proposals to start a National Cancer Institute just five kilometres away from the Regional Cancer Centre (RCC).
