Yogi Adityanath promises to revamp UP's healthcare system, says govt will open six new Aiims

A day after the Uttar Pradesh government announced farm loan waiver worth of Rs 36,359 crores, Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath on Wednesday promised to revamp the healthcare system of India's most populous state.

Speaking at a function at King George's Medical University in Lucknow, Adityanath spoke of increasing the number of doctors in the state. The chief minister stressed that the state needed at least five lakh more doctors to help the healthcare infrastructure in UP.

Stressing on affordable healthcare, Adityanath also claimed that patients were being fleeced in the name of treatment. On the issue of medical treatment, he claimed, "If a doctor talks to his patient politely, half the ailment disappears."

Adityanath said that the Uttar Pradesh government will open six new Aiims hospitals and also promised to start two new medical colleges in the state.

In a stern message to the medical community of the state, Adityanath warned government doctors not to indulge in private practice. He also reiterated that he has a huge responsibility towards the people of the state.
