He said the free eye treatment and surgery was instituted as part of welfare programmes for the people.

“Many of the beneficiaries could not afford such medical treatments or operations due to financial constraints.

“We engage 20;qualified doctors for the exercise and it is expected to be completed within one month.”

He restated his commitment to introduce more programmes that would improve the living standards of the people.
