Kumar lauded the SKIMS authorities for their immense contribution in the field of medicine and healthcare in the State. "I have been associated with SKIMS since 1997. I used to come to SKIMS to look after the patients-who were the victims of the situation," he said. "You took equal care of all. That's where humanity in doctors comes in. There is nothing that counts. You are in a noble service and I am extremely delighted that I am closely working with the medical fraternity of Jammu and Kashmir."
