VIJAYAWADA: Minister of Health, Kamineni Srinivas Rao speaking to the media said, “Shifting of bodies of those patients who died in Government hospitals will be done through special vehicles under Mahaprasthanam program.”

He further added that the program would soon be launched by Chief Minister Chandrababu Naidu.
“Majority of the people who are dying in the government hospitals would be shifted through special vehicles organised by the State government. Our main intention of this program is to reduce the burden of shifting the dead bodies for those families who are already in a deep loss of losing their dear ones. Under Mahaprasthanam program, 50 vehicles would be allotted to 13 districts of the State. The vehicles are equipped with air conditioning and the bodies will be treated with respect,” said Kamineni Srinivas Rao.
 He further said that the program will be extended to more hospitals and would be made available in the next two months after the completion of procurement of vehicles.
