The Telangana Government is making history by opening nine new medical colleges in the state. This means that every district in Telangana will have its own government medical college. The colleges will be located in Jangaon, Nirmal, Kamareddy, Karimnagar, Sircilla, Asifabad, Bhupalpally, Vikarabad, and Khammam. Municipal Administration Minister KT Rama Rao called on the Ministers and MLAs to celebrate this achievement with grand events at the district headquarters on September 15.
During a teleconference with the Ministers and MLAs, KTR instructed them to organize rallies with at least 20,000 participants and create programs that highlight the benefits of these medical colleges. He also emphasized the importance of involving the youth and students in these initiatives.
KTR criticized the Congress and BJP for not allocating medical colleges to Telangana in the past, and urged public representatives to inform citizens about this unfair treatment.
Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao will personally inaugurate one of the medical colleges on September 15, while Health Minister T Harish Rao will inaugurate the medical college in Kamareddy.
During the teleconference, Health Minister Harish Rao mentioned that Telangana now has the highest number of MBBS seats in the country. He also revealed that 43 percent of the total increase in MBBS seats in India this year came from Telangana. Despite the Central Government’s announcement of 157 new medical colleges, none were granted to Telangana.
Before these new colleges were established, students from Telangana had to go to other states or even abroad to study medicine. Thanks to CM KCR’s efforts, students can now pursue their medical studies within Telangana.
