What’s the issue?
In Banaras Hindu University’s Sir Sunderlal Hospital, students were provided with free health and check-up facilities. After the lockdown in the COVID-19 era, the university administration banned the facility given to students. Now university students are having to deduct Rs 20 for OPD medical consultation in the hospital, which is constantly opposed by the students. Students also spoke to the Vice-Chancellor over the same matter.
