MP Innocent for mobile cancer testing centres

New Delhi: Noted Malayalam comedian-turned MP Innocent Wednesday shared his experience of fighting cancer and insisted that the dreaded disease could be cured if diagnosed at an early stage, a sentiment acknowledged by several Lok Sabha members and Speaker Sumitra Mahajan.

The CPI-M-supported Independent member from Kerala made a fervent plea for launching of mobile testing centres and distribution of free medicines to fight the disease.

Raising the issue during Zero Hour, Innocent said he was himself diagnosed with cancer "in five parts of my body" and added that it was detected in early stages and he underwent treatment.

He said a mammogram was carried out on his wife as "a formality" and cancer was detected and treated immediately.

Innocent said people above 40 should get themselves diagnosed for the disease, saying mobile detection centres across the country would benefit a vast majority of the people.

He also sought distribution of free anti-cancer drugs and said all this should be done even at the municipal level which would prove a boon for treatment of the people.

After he completed his speech, the Speaker came out in praised the member and the cause he was espousing.

Innocent won the 2014 Lok Sabha elections from Chalakudy Lok Sabha constituency as a Left-supported Independent, defeating senior Congress leader P C Chacko.
