On this day, the mayor said that the Chief Minister of the state, Prof. (Dr.) Manik Saha had called upon the people to come forward to donate blood. Because, in the past days, 12 blood banks approved by the government and 2 private blood banks had blood shortage.

These kinds of blood donation camps have helped a lot in eliminating the shortage of blood in government blood banks.
