TRS MP Dr B Narsaiah Goud today said that with the Centre giving approval for an AIIMS in Telangana, one of Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao's dreams had come true.
Talking to press persons in Delhi, Goud said that the state government's efforts for an AIIMS in Telangana were close to fructifying as the Centre had given its nod to set up one at Bibinagar in Yadadri Bhuavangiri district in the state.
Goud attributed the approval for the AIIMS to the efforts of KCR, and said that the CM had guided them in the right direction. He also said that the TRS MPs had made persistent efforts in Parliament and almost waged a battle to secure the sanction.
He said that with the approval, the aim of the Telangana government to provide the best and corporate-hospital-level health services to the people would be fulfilled.
The Centre has approved two new AIIMS in the country - one in Bibinagar (Telangana) and the other in Madurai (Tamil Nadu).
The Bibinagar AIIMS is scheduled to be completed in about 45 months at an expense of about Rs 1,028 crores, and will provide super-specialty health services with 750 beds. It will also have a medical college, 100 MBBS seats, 60 nursing seats and 15-20 special departments.
