Dattatraya urges State govt to drop move to shift Ayurveda hospital to Erragadda

Hyderabad, July 25 (PMI): The Bharatiya Janata Party State unit has opposed the proposal to shift the Government Ayurvedic Hospital near Charminar to Erragadda and urged the government to strengthen the infrastructure at the hospital by providing more beds and increasing strength of medical staff.
In a memorandum submitted to Health Minister Etela Rajender here on Thursday, BJP senior leader and former Union minister Bandaru Dattatraya said the Government Ayurveda Hospital near Charminar was established by the erstwhile Nizam of Hyderabad some 50 years ago along with the Unani Hospital to cater to the medical needs of poor people. But the present government was now planning to shift it to Erragadda where already an Ayurvedic Hospital was functioning for the past 15 years.
Dattatraya appealed to the State government to drop the proposal and instead strengthen the existing hospital staff and equipment. He also urged the government to make use of the Central Government’s financial assistance for development of alternative medicines and develop the hospital. He also urged the Government to set up such hospitals at all district headquarters and in Secunderabad.
Dr S. Prakash Reddy, former Union minister and spokesperson of State unit; Umamahender, BJP City general secretary; Dr Kishan, Member-CCIM, and Dr Srinivas Solanki, BJP Media Co-convener were present. (PMI)
