We should be ready for change, says outgoing assistant Minister for Health and Medical Services, Veena Bhatnagar.

Ms Bhatnagar will become Assistant Minister for Women, Children and Poverty Alleviation on September 17.

She said she was looking forward to her new ministry role.

“Being a politician, these changes are nothing new and we should be ready to accept the changes,” Ms Bhatnagar said.

“I am very positive about the changes that took place in the Cabinet.

“I have given my best in the Ministry of Health and Medical Services and now I am looking forward to working for the Ministry of Women,” she said.

Ms Bhatnagar said there was a lot of work to be done after the Disability Bill was passed.

“I know I will be very well-connected to the women, children, to our senior citizens and to our people because it is what we are here for and what we do,” Ms Bhatnagar said.

“I’m ready to take up the role as the assistant Minister for Women, Children and Poverty Alleviation to assist and support our people.”

Ms Bhatnagar said she would try her level best to provide the best services for all Fijians.
