Haryana is going to construct it’s 19th medical college on 80.63 acres of land in village Koriyawas, Narnaul city at a cost of Rs 500 crore. CM Manohar Lal Khattar laid the foundation of the college yesterday. Addressing a ‘Jan Vikas’ rally, the chief minister said that the government plans to set up at least one medical college in each of the state’s 22 districts.
The construction of the medical college in Narnaul would be completed within 24 months, Mr Khattar said.
He said the establishment of medical colleges will help locals get medical aid with ease who otherwise have to travel up to 100-150 kilometers to see a doctor. Construction of this medical college would not only provide better healthcare facilities to the people but also employment opportunities.
“A 500-bed hospital would also be constructed here and every year, 100 students would get admission in MBBS”, he added.
He further claimed his government was working for development of this region which has lagged behind due to improper water distribution.
Talking about his government’s work, he said, “When the present government came to power, the task of changing all the pump houses at the cost of Rs 143 crore was carried out immediately and water was supplied till 293 tail ends out of 300,” he said.
We have also taken up the SYL canal issue on priority and simultaneously ensured the equitable supply of water,” he said.
After the Lakhwar dam, the memorandum of understanding on Renuka-Kishau dam would be signed and it would benefit the people of southern Haryana the most, Mr Khattar said.
Mr Khattar also inaugurated and laid the foundation stones for other projects worth about Rs 136 crore. He also announced development projects for Nangal Chaudhary, Ateli and Narnaul assembly constituencies.
