Tripura CM Urges People to Donate Eyes and Body After Death

For helping the students engaged in studying medical science, Tripura Chief Minister Manik Sarkar has urged the people of the state to donate body and eyes after death. Sarkar said this while speaking at a blood donation camp organised by the Agartala Press Club.

Sarkar, who was present as the chief guest on the occasion, said that the journalists should also come forward to donate their eyes and body after death to overcome the taboo associated with it and asked the people to come forward for the same. He informed that his government has taken the initiative to inspire the people to donate parts of the body and eyes.


Tripura is among the top states in the country with people offering 94% of voluntary blood donation. The blood donation camp witnessed more than 30 journalists and their family members donating blood. The camp was organised with the support of the Society of Voluntary Blood Donors, Tripura unit and All Tripura Diabetics Forum.

A free check-up for diabetics was also organised in the camp.
