    Former Health minister T Harish Rao criticized the State government for not paying salaries to doctors and staff at Telangana Diagnostics centres for the last six months. He said that the diagnostic hubs, set up by the previous government to provide free services, have collapsed under the current government.

    Rao mentioned that the previous government had established 36 diagnostic centres across the state, offering over 134 types of diagnostic tests free of cost to the public. He emphasized that these centres were crucial in ensuring that poor and common people could access quality medical tests without financial burden.
