    Health Minister T Harish Rao announced in the Assembly on Friday that the K Chandrashekar Rao government plans to have a medical college in every district, aiming to achieve a “White Coat Revolution”. The government has already achieved revolutions in the fields of agriculture and women’s safety. Rao emphasized that just as the state is surplus in food production, they will also produce surplus doctors.

    During the discussion, Rao responded to criticism from CLP leader Bhatti Vikramarka regarding the delay in constructing a new hospital in Osmania. He assured that after receiving permission from the High Court, a super specialty hospital with 2,000 beds will be built at the same location without disturbing the temple and mosque.

    Rao highlighted the positive changes in government hospitals, stating that 70% of deliveries now occur in these hospitals, compared to only 30% in the past. He also mentioned that the government has invested Rs 73,000 crore in healthcare over the past nine years, demonstrating their commitment.

    The establishment of “Basti Dawakhanas” has significantly impacted healthcare services in the city. Many people used to visit Osmania and Gandhi hospitals for fever treatment, but with the introduction of these medical centers, the burden on these hospitals has been reduced.

    In response to comments made by film star Rajinikanth, who praised Telangana’s development, Rao criticized those who fail to acknowledge it. He likened the current BJP government at the Centre to former Chief Minister Kiran Kumar Reddy, as both have neglected Telangana’s needs. Rao pointed out that while Reddy refused to allocate funds to Telangana, the Centre has not provided a single medical college to the state, despite establishing 158 across the country.

    Finally, Rao stated that the construction of Health City in Warangal will be completed by the end of the year.
