CM launches Rs 1,132 cr projects in Gonda Lays foundation stone of medical college

Thursday, 28 October 2021 | PNS | Lucknow

Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath said that every district of the state would soon have a medical college to provide accessible healthcare to the citizens as no place could develop fully in the absence of medical resources and facilities.


“To provide proper medical treatment and healthcare facilities to every needy in the state, the Bharatiya Janata Party government has worked in a planned and phased manner to improve the existing healthcare system and expand the health infrastructure across the state,” Yogi said after laying the foundation stone of government medical college in Gonda which is estimated to cost approximately Rs 282 crore.


Besides, he launched 144 development and medical projects worth Rs 1,132 crore in Gonda.


“Today, the foundation stone of a medical college in Gonda is being laid with the resolution to start admissions in this institute by the year 2022-23. Despite facing the wrath of natural calamities like floods, Gonda has made great progress. This has been possible because of several growth-oriented reforms implemented by the state government at the ground level, along with ensuring safety of every individual,” the chief minister said.


Highlighting the improved road infrastructure across the state, the chief minister said that earlier it used to take about 3 to 3.5 hours to travel from Gonda to Devipatan, but now it took even less than one hour.


Hitting out at the previous governments for neglecting development and turning the state into a centre of ‘riots and chaos’,  Yogi said that none of the previous regimes thought of building a medical college in Gonda. “Has anyone thought why? The reason is that their development was just confined to their own backyard and their own benefit. Had they worked for the welfare of people, the place would have witnessed development long back,” he said.


“Before 2017, curfews were imposed during the festive season. The common man was not even allowed to celebrate festivals with peace. The previous governments did not respect the religious sentiments of people. However, Uttar Pradesh has transformed in the last four and a half years. Today, people are being given gifts of welfare schemes right before festivals. Unlike previous governments, our government has fulfilled the promises and has carried out development projects without any bias,” Yogi stressed.


Reiterating his resolve to work for the betterment of farmers, the chief minister said: “Those who pretend to be the ‘well-wishers’ of farmers should know that the government has made a record payment of Rs 1.44 lakh crore to over 45 lakh cane farmers in the state.”


Emphasising that the state government was functioning with full dedication to fulfill the goals set by it, Yogi said, “We fulfilled our promise of building the grand Ram temple and now others are claiming to be ‘honest devotees’ of Lord Ram.”


On the occasion, the chief minister handed over symbolic keys of houses to the beneficiaries under Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana (Rural and Urban), and also gave benefits to eligible beneficiaries under welfare schemes like Mukhyamantri Bal Seva Yojana, Kanya Sumangala Yojana, Rashtriya Grameen Aajeevika Mission and Kanya Vivah Sahayta Yojana.
