Tapas Roy, Secretary of Social Welfare and Social Education, explained, "We provide a foster pension of Rs 4000 per month to children not kept with family, up to 18 years or a maximum of 3 years. Financial aid is also offered to medical patients of any age through Mukhya Mantri Samipeshu, as well as children from financially disadvantaged backgrounds." Dr Sankar Chakraborty, MS, AGMC and GBP Hospital, added, "Mukhya Mantri Samipeshu began almost 1-1.5 years ago, allowing people to directly meet with our CM, Dr Manik Saha, to discuss their issues and seek relief. Most applications pertain to medical assistance from the CM."

Dr Shiramani Debbarma, MS, Atal Bihari Vajpayee Regional Cancer Institute, noted, "Patients from various regions come to Mukhya Mantri Samipeshu for benefits. We collectively address their issues alongside the Chief Minister, who attends Samipeshu once a week. About 6-7 cancer patients benefit each session." Rachana Saha's mother, a beneficiary, shared, "My daughter has been in the cancer hospital for a while, so I approached the Chief Minister for improved chemotherapy treatment. Despite my financial challenges, I applied for timely chemotherapy. The medical superintendent assured proper facilitation and timely allowance. The Chief Minister guaranteed all required actions."

Another beneficiary, Prasenjit Das, expressed, "I am eighty percent handicapped and suffer from elephantiasis lymphedema. Speaking with the Chief Minister at the Chief Minister Samipeshu event, he assured my treatment at AIIMS hospital in Delhi free of charge, using his own funds. I am grateful to our Chief Minister for taking full responsibility for my operation." (ANI)
