Doctor and activist Kafeel Khan held a medical camp at Topsia in Calcutta on Saturday. Khan runs an initiative called Doctors on Road, which organises free medical camps for the poor and needy across the country. The initiative has been running for 81 days.

Khan and his team of doctors treated around 300 kids on Saturday. He was felicitated by local Trinamul MLA Javed Ahmed Khan. The activist-doctor had been invited to Bengal by an NGO called the Just Yellow Foundation.

Speaking to The Telegraph on the sidelines of the camp, Khan said he would like to see Trinamul Congress chief and Bengal’s chief minister Mamata Banerjee assuming a role at the Centre along with other Opposition leaders such as Sharad Pawar and Ashok Gehlot. He also said he would campaign against the BJP in the upcoming Uttar Pradesh Assembly polls.
