UP election 2022: Electoral state UP gets maximum medical colleges, disclosed in RTI – uttar pradesh gets maximum medical college and budget in three phase by modi govt

Lucknow/Pune
In view of the assembly elections to be held in Uttar Pradesh, the BJP government at the Center is trying its best to woo the voters of the state by allotting the maximum number of medical colleges. This information has been received from an RTI reply. Of the total 157 new medical colleges to be set up in three phases across 27 state-UTs, Uttar Pradesh got the share of a major one. Whereas the second largest state Maharashtra has got only a small part.

In 2014, the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare (MoHFW) approved the setting up of a series of new medical colleges linked to district/referral hospitals across the country to boost medical infrastructure. Pune-based activist Praful Sarda said, “The new medical colleges were planned under a central scheme with a fund-sharing formula. Rs.17,935.21 crore was released for the major initiative, in the ratio of 60:40 Centre-State and 90:10 for North East/Special Category States.’

Of the total 157 proposed new medical colleges, the highest 27, (with a maximum budget of Rs 2,467.00 crore) have been released for Uttar Pradesh, which is gearing up for the crucial assembly elections in early 2022. It was followed by 23 colleges in Rajasthan (Rs 1,693.80 crore), West Bengal 11 colleges (Rs 1,390.57 crore), Tamil Nadu 11 colleges (Rs 1,320.00 crore), Madhya Pradesh 14 colleges (Rs 1,243.80 crore) and Bihar eight colleges (1,090.20 crore). crores) have been given.

Sarda said, “The rest of the big states are very low both in terms of number of new medical colleges allotted and budget as well. The Centre’s plan looks deceptive, and intends to take advantage in the assembly elections. For example, Maharashtra has been given only two medical colleges and a budget of Rs 263.40 crore – the lowest among large states.

“Maharashtra contributes maximum GST and tax revenue to the Centre, has the second largest population, but is again given ‘step-motherly’ treatment as compared to Uttar Pradesh or Gujarat,” Sarda said.
