500-bed Hospital At Chhapra To Be Ready In Next 6 Mths, Says Nitish | Patna News

Chhapra/Patna: CM Nitish Kumar on Monday said construction work of the proposed 500-bed government medical college and hospital (GMCH) at Chhapra would be completed in the next six months.
The CM made this statement after conducting on-the-spot inspection of the ongoing construction works on the premises of the GMCH during his Samadhan Yatra on Monday.
Additional chief secretary (health) Pratyaya Amrit gave detailed information to the CM about the status of work on the construction of the auditorium, playground, library as well as boys’ and girls’ hostels on the campus.
The CM asked the officials to expedite construction work and set up necessary infrastructure for sports activities. “Since JP University and the government-run engineering college are located besides the upcoming GMCH, there should be proper connectivity among the three educational institutions,” he told the accompanying officials.
Later, Nitish told mediapersons that the GMCH would be completed in the next six month. He said the medical college campus was being linked to the nearby national highway and railway station through an underpass.
Nitish also said his government has a plan to set up one medical college in each big district, but it would be executed after completing the medical colleges of those districts where they have already been decided.
He said the state government already reserved 33.3% of the seats for girls in all the medical and engineering colleges. “Now, a huge number of girls can study in medical and engineering colleges,” he said. Earlier in the day, Nitish visited different places in Saran district and reviewed the ongoing development projects. “Whether the temperature falls to 4 degrees and rises to 44 degrees Celsius, I would continue to visit places and hear the grievances of people,” the CM said.
The CM started his yatra of the day from Bhairopur-Manpur village under Sajjanpur-Matihan panchayat of Dariapur block and handed over checks worth Rs12.23 lakh to 90 families under the Sustainable Livelihood Programme. He also inspected a shoe house started under the SC/ST Udyami Yojana.
While reviewing the development schemes at Saran collectorate, the CM asked DM Rajesh Meena to ensure repair of school buildings and keep a special vigil on proper implementation of the Nal-Jal Yojana. “The paddy procurement works should be done properly so that farmers do not face any difficulty,” he told the DM.
