3 Jodhpur private hospitals to offer discount on polling day

Some private hospitals in Jodhpur will offer five to fifty per cent discount on charges to people who exercise their voting rights in the upcoming Lok Sabha polls.

The benefit will be available in three private hospitals – Jodhpur Dhanvantari Hospital, Preksha Hospital and Shri Ram Hospital – in the city on 17 April (polling day) and 18 April. More hospitals are likely to join the initiative. People have to show the indelible ink mark on their finger as proof of having cast their votes to avail of the discount. Sunil Chandak of Shri Ram Hospital, said, “The move was taken in order to motivate people to participate in the electoral process. I spoke to some other private hospitals. Some of them refused, but some of them liked the idea.”  Meanwhile, the Association of Medical Practitioners’ of Jodhpur has decided to write to all private hospitals to join the initiative.
