He was speaking at an event organised by an eye hospital to mark a camp it conducted in Jharkhand’s Saranda forest, considered a stronghold of Maoist guerrillas, in January.

The minister made the remark to laud Ranchi’s Kashyap Memorial Eye Hospital for treating around 1,000 patients inside the guerrilla zone without the government’s support.

“In this world, the most dangerous animal is Indian bureaucracy” and Dr Bharti Kashyap (the hospital’s director) is their only remedy, the minister said.

Governor Syed Ahmad was the event’s chief guest.

Dr Kashyap told IANS that during the camp they found over 30 per cent of the population suffering from cataract and around 250 people were operated upon. [IANS]
