Prime Minister Narendra Modi inaugurated nine medical colleges of the state including Madhav Prasad Tripathi Medical College in Siddharthnagar district. Along with this, he started the Prime Minister’s Self-Reliant Healthy India Scheme. PM Modi also addressed the public. 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? PM Modi took a jibe at Samajwadi Party and said, “Cycle of corruption ran a lot in UP.”
Those who were in the government earlier, they used to sit for votes by announcing dispensary somewhere, some small hospital. 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. By saying cycle of corruption, he clearly aimed at Akhilesh Yadav.
PM Modi said that the government which is in the center today, the government here in UP is the result of decades of penance of many Karma Yogis. Siddharthnagar also gave such a dedicated public representative in the form of Late Madhav Prasad Tripathi ji to the country, whose tireless hard work is being used for the nation today. He said that naming the 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 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. Purvanchal, whose image was tarnished by the previous governments, Purvanchal, 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.
PM Modi said that today the people of UP are also seeing that when Yogi ji was given a chance to serve the people, how he stopped the encephalitis from growing, saved the lives of thousands of children of this area. 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. 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.
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. UP Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath, Union Health Minister Mansukh Mandaviya, Health Minister Jai Pratap Singh, Minister of State for Basic Education Dr. Satish Chandra Dwivedi, MP Jagdambika Pal, MLA Radhavendra Pratap Singh were also present in this program.
