Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Saturday has personally intervened after Lieutenant General (Retd) DS Hooda sought help for his sister who is suffering from cancer.

On Saturday, Sushma Hooda, an army veteran’s wife and a cancer patient had appealed to PM Modi in her tweet urging him to expedite approval to a new drug of cancer, approved by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) that may “grant a lease of life” to her and numerous cancer patients like her.

Quoting his sister’s tweet, former Lt Gen D S Hooda said that “the drug may give a fighting chance of survival to many like her.”

“I start this tweet with admitting that I have a personal interest. @SushmaHooda is my sister, a cancer patient of several years with dwindling hope. Keeping sentiments aside approval of the new drug may give a fighting chance of survival to many like her,” he tweeted quoting her tweet.

A few hours later, taking to Twitter, Lt Gen (Retd) Hooda said that he has received a call from the Prime Minister who expressed concern over the case. “Received a call from @PMOIndia and spoke with PM Narendra Modi who expressed concern over the case. Truly humbled and honoured on receiving his call and his words that the case would be looked into. Proud to be an Indian and even prouder of the PMs personal intervention. Jai Hind.”

Lt Gen Hooda, who had overseen the surgical strike of September 2016 on terror camps across the Line of Control (LoC) in Pakistan-occupied Kashmir, retired from the service in November 2016.
