In a thoughtful gesture, RC Belgaum Midtown, D 3170, held a lung check-up camp for traffic policemen in the city. The camp was organised to “make them healthy and happy, help them to serve better and to bring smiles on the faces of their family members,” said S M Naik, Club Secretary.
Over 150 traffic police personnel, both men and women, were benefitted by the camp and some of them told the club members that this was the “first time that somebody had taken steps to care for our health as so far the government has not done anything in this regard.”
City Police Commissioner D C Rajappa and ACP Lakshminarayan coordinated the event while the Club President Vilas Badami and Project Chairman Dr Vijay Pujar made necessary arrangements for successful conduct of the camp. It was Prof Udaysingh Rajput who mooted the idea of holding such a medical camp for traffic policemen who spend more than eight hours a day to regulate traffic on the polluted streets of Belagavi.
