He also requested Governor to extend the assistance that may be required at certain stages of the implementation of the project.
Governor Hari Babu Kambhampati thanked JICA Survey team for not only providing financial assistance for the MSSSCRC project. He also appreciated the full responsibility taken up by JICA for the meticulous survey and design of the project. Governor felt that no other project is more important and more essential to the state than this project since the state has unfortunate records for cancer patients who needed special treatment outside the state.
