Inaugurating nine medical colleges simultaneously in UP, PM Modi said that naming this new medical college of Siddharthnagar after Madhav Babu is a true tribute to his service. The name of Madhav Babu will also give continuous inspiration to the young doctors coming out of here for public service. He said that the government at the Center today, the government here in UP, is the result of decades of penance of many Karma Yogis.

Purvanchal is going to give new light of health to eastern India
PM Modi said that with the construction of 9 new medical colleges, about two and a half thousand new beds have been created, new employment opportunities have been created for more than 5 thousand doctors and paramedics. Along with this, a new path of medical education has been opened for hundreds of youth every year. He said that the Purvanchal, whose image was tarnished by the previous governments, which was maligned due to the tragic deaths due to encephalitis, the same Purvanchal, the same Uttar Pradesh, is going to give a new light of health to eastern India. .
Yogi had narrated in Parliament the health problem of UP
The Prime Minister said that today the people of UP are also seeing that when Yogi ji was given a chance to serve by the people, how he stopped the progress of encephalitis, saved the lives of thousands of children of this region. When the government is sensitive, there is a feeling of compassion in the mind to understand the pain of the poor, then this is how it works. He said that the brothers and sisters of UP cannot forget how Yogi ji had narrated the agony of the poor medical system of UP in the Parliament. Yogi ji was not the Chief Minister then, he was an MP.
Inauguration of so many medical colleges for the first time in the history of UP
PM Modi said that does anyone ever remember that in the history of Uttar Pradesh, so many medical colleges have been inaugurated simultaneously? Tell me, has this ever happened? Why this did not happen earlier and why it is happening now is because of only one reason – political will and political preference.
Earlier governments used to sit after announcing the hospital
PM Modi said that what was the government in Delhi 7 years ago and the government here in UP 4 years ago, what did they do in Purvanchal? Those who were in the government earlier, they used to sit for votes by announcing dispensary somewhere, some small hospital. He said that for years and years, either the building was not built, if there was a building, 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.
