On the occasion, RSS executive chair Dharmendra Jha, general manager Siddha Raj Rai, chief administrator Shital Prasad Mahato, deputy general managers, chiefs of various departments, and other employees had their eyes tested.

On the occasion, RSS executive chair Jha and GM Rai thanked and praised the FNJ RSS chapter the work of organising the free eye camp for RSS employees while stressing the need for continuing it.

FNJ RSS chapter president Pabitra Guragain said the FNJ is very serious regarding protecting the rights and interests and the health of journalists. She added that the eye camp has been organised in the interest of the RSS’ employees and their families.

RSS Employees’ Association president Manoj Lamichhane and the RSS Employees’ Organization president Prem Prasad Upadhyay suggested giving continuity to such constructive programmes in future as well.

RSS Employees Union president Kalika Khadka lauded the FNJ RSS chapter especially for organizing the eye checkup camp, stating that journalists who are busy writing news most of the time sometimes tend to neglect their health.

The Hospital has announced a 10 percent discount on surgery and opticals to those undergoing eye checkup at the camp today.
