Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) leader and former member J&K State Advisory Board for Gujjars and Bakerwals, Abdul Hamid Choudhary has hailed the Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti’s initiative in asking officials to expedite work on establishment of five new medical colleges in the state which according to him will reinforce the healthcare system in Jammu and Kashmir and provide people facilities which they earlier lacked.
Once established the medical education as well as healthcare will get augmented, he asserted.
The new Medical Colleges which are coming up at Baramulla, Anantnag, Rajouri, Doda and Kathua districts are sure to provide people better tertiary healthcare and medical education for which they used to bank upon just the capital cities only. Choudhary Hamid said that once established, these colleges will produce about 500 more doctors every year and that is a sufficient number of add to the existing team of doctors in our state.
Earlier, people of far off places used to depend on hospitals located in capital cities and doctors used to refer every patient thereby putting extra burden on the hospitals. Now that these five colleges are in process of establishment, referral system will automatically come to an end and once they start functioning for which the chief minister is very particular. The PDP leader said that these developments are actually aimed at giving people their due shares.
