“They are a gift to the people of the state”: Narendra Modi launched 9 new medical colleges in Siddharthnagar, Uttar Pradesh

Narendra Modi Launched 9 New Medical Colleges

On Monday, October 25, PM Narendra Modi inaugurated nine medical colleges in the districts of Siddharthnagar, Ghazipur, Fatehpur, Hardoi, Etah, Deoria, Jaunpur, and Mirzapur.

These medical colleges are built at a cost of 2,239 crores with the purpose to advance the public health sector.

Uttar Pradesh CM Yogi Adityanath, Governor Anandiben Patel, and Union health minister Mansukh Mandaviya were also present at the event. These medical colleges are launched under Pradhan Mantri Atmanirbhar Swasth Bharat Yojana.

“Leaving for Siddharthnagar and Varanasi. Today, India’s largest scheme to scale up health infrastructure will be launched. Various medical colleges along with key development works will be inaugurated,” Modi tweeted.

Out of the nine colleges, eight have been sanctioned under the centre-sponsored schemes for the “establishment of new medical colleges attached with district/referral hospitals”. And the one medical college in Jaunpur has been made functional by the Uttar Pradesh government through its own resources. 

PM also added that “ Our priority is to save the poor’s money and procure the with facilities”.

Through a network of laboratories across the country, PM assures that the people will have complete access to a complete range of diagnostic services in public healthcare infrastructure.

This was PM’s second visit to Uttar Pradesh within a month. The inauguration took place in Varanasi at 1.15 pm.

The PMO said, under the three phases of the scheme, 157 new medical colleges have been authorized over the nation, out of which 63 medical colleges are already functional.

Criticizing the previous government in UP, Modi said, “For years and years, either the building was not built, if there was a building, then there were no machines, if both were done, there would be no doctors and other staff. The cycle of corruption, which looted thousands of crores of rupees from the poor, used to run round the clock separately”. 

He further added that until 2017, there were 1900 medical seats available in UP, and in the past four years the number has been doubled. 

The main aim of the scheme is to correct the geographical imbalance of the existing medical colleges,  completely utilize the existing infrastructure of district hospitals and boosts the availability of health professionals.
