Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath on Monday, October 25, thanked Prime Minister Narendra Modi for implementing initiatives to improve India's public health sector and taking steps towards establishing 30 medical colleges in Uttar Pradesh. Adityanath said when the country was battling the deadly coronavirus infections, India progressed successfully with the introduction of two COVID-19 vaccines under the leadership of PM Modi. 

"From 1947-2016, only 12 government medical colleges were there (in Uttar Pradesh) but now under PM Modi's leadership, 30 medical colleges will be opened. Out of 30, MBBS classes have started in 7 colleges, and today we are inaugurating 9 more; 14 more in future," Yogi Adityanath said.

The UP Chief Minister said the state and country needed a Ram to destroy the darkness related to health issues and under PM Modi the nation is progressing in terms of health facilities. 

He added that with the creation of nine medical colleges in the state, the treatment methods will be improved and employment opportunities will be provided to young aspirants who opt to do public service.
