The state government’s decision to bear the medical expenses of actor KPAC Lalitha has raised some eyebrows. A hue of controversy is shadowing over the matter. Amid this V Abdurahiman, Minister for Sports, Wakf and Hajj, has come up with the rationale behind the government’s decision.
According to Abdurahiman, there is no need for any controversy over the decision. The government has decided to bear for the expenses based on the request of the actor.
“Artists are always an asset for Kerala. Earlier too governments have borne the medical expenses for those who have raised such requests. The government has not ignored anybody,” he said. The minister pointed out that in his constituency around 2,500 individuals were provided with financial assistance. “So, there is no need of any controversy over it,” he added. The minister further claimed that KPAC Lalitha neither has any assets nor means to meet the expenses for the treatment.
The decision was taken in a cabinet meeting held on Wednesday. KPAC Lalitha has been undergoing treatment for liver-related ailments at a private hospital in Kochi. She was shifted to Kochi from Thrissur for expert medical care. On the other day, the hospital authority informed that the health condition of the actress has been improved.
