He addressed the people at a function following the laying of the institute's foundation stone, to which intellectuals from the capital have been specially invited. Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath was also present at the event. Shah may visit the Sanjay Gandhi Postgraduate Institute of Medical Sciences (SGPGI) to inquire about the health of former Uttar Pradesh chief minister and former Rajasthan governor Kalyan Singh, according to a BJP spokesperson. His current schedule, on the other hand, makes no mention of his travel to SGPGI.
