Mumbai: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Monday launched 9 medical colleges in Siddarthanagar and took a swipe at the previous governments of UP and said that they only filled their own lockers and did not care about the poor.
“Has it ever happened before that 9 colleges were inaugurated?… Its reason is political priorities… Previous govt’s were only filling their family lockers & earning for themselves. But our priority is to save poor’s money and provide them facilities,” PM Modi in Siddarthanagar.
He further added that these 9 medical colleges will provide employment to over 5000 people and will become a medical hub of Northern India.
PM Modi added, “By opening these new 9 medical colleges over 2500 new beds are added, over 5000 employment opportunities will be generated. Earlier govt has left people of ‘Purvanchal’ to suffer from diseases but now it will become a medical hub of Northern India.”
Modi also took a shoot at the previous ruling parties of Uttar Pradesh saying that the Yogi-led government has worked hard for improving the poor medical system in the state.
“Earlier, Purvanchal’s image was ruined by previous govts, it was defamed because of ‘dimagi’ fever… The same region will now infuse new hopes… people of UP can’t forget how Yogi ji had highlighted about UPs poor medical system in Parliament, despite not being a CM,” PM Modi.
At the inauguration of nine medical colleges in Siddharthnagar, PM Narendra Modi began his speech in Bhojpuri. He was escorted by CM Yogi Adityanath and Governor Anandiben Patel to take a look at the exhibition at the venue.
