Punjab’s Malwa area has earned itself the dubious reputation of being the cancer capital of the state. The heavy metal toxicity of the groundwater here is taking a toll on the health of the people living in the state.
About 70 to 100 cancer patients from Malwa region travel every day by train to Bikaner for free treatment and cheap medicines in the Acharya Tulsi Regional Cancer Trust. Patients are struggling really bad to get free aid in Bikaner, since Punjab doesn’t provide its people cheap aid for the treatment. No measures have been taken by the Punjab Government till now.
Punjabi Khurki brings to you this video in ‘Vasda Punjab’ series showing the irreversible effect of cancer in the Malwa belt and the sufferings of the people.
