But for Endebess Member of Parliament, Dr Robert Satia Pukose it's much different.The MP spends most of his free time at Endebess Sub-county Hospital. At the hospital, he conducts free surgeries for the residents indiscriminately especially on weekends, holidays and when Parliament proceeds on long recess.
