Meanwhile, for the first time since past 28 years, the state administration has denied the permission to doctors for taking part in the free medical camp and blood donation camp that used to be set up outside Jamia Masjid. AAC spokesman said that hundreds of people would get benefited by the free medical camp where patients were also distributed free medicine but ironically the state administration without giving any reason, has denied permission to the State health department from attending the camp, which is very unfortunate.
