Patna: Deputy Chief Minister Sushil Kumar Modi on Monday inaugurated the newly-built eyecare center and the eye bank in the Indira Gandhi Institute of Medical Sciences (IGIMS) saying the new government in Bihar would help develop the hospital as a model healthcare center that would be emulated by other such institutes in Bihar.

Stressing the need to raise awareness about donating body parts after death to help fellow human beings, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader said that even if people are hesitant in donating their body parts, they should at least consider donating their cornea so patients with poor eyesight could benefit from them.

Modi applauded the hospital's initiative in setting up an eye bank saying nothing could be greater than the gift of eyesight and every attempt should be made to encourage people to donate their cornea so someone who has never seen the light of the day due to blindness could also see the beauty around him with the help of technology currently available in the field of eyecare.

Former BJP state President Mangal Pandey, who has been Bihar's Health Minister for less than two weeks, said that he has ordered a full review of all state and center schemes to identify cracks in the system so they could be rectified to strengthen the state's healthcare system.

IGIMS Director Dr. N R Biswas, Medical Superintendent Dr. Manish Mandal, Eyecare Department President Dr. V P Sinha and many other healthcare professionals were present on the occasion.
