    Telangana spent Rs 800 Crore under Arogyasri cancer treatment and during the previous year Rs 137 crores were spent only on cancer patients. Soon, chemotherapy and radiotherapy would be available in districts for cancer patients.

He said that the government was striving for 10,000 super specialty beds in the State within one year by starting four super specialty hospitals in four corners of the city in the name of TIMS (Telangana Institute of Medical Sciences) and also a health city in Warangal.
