Heal hub at festival venue

A 30-bed community health centre is likely to come up at Doranda grounds in the capital where Urs festival is held every year.

Representatives of Hazrat Qutubuddin Resaldar Baba Dargah Trust, to whom the land belongs to, met state health minister Rajendra Prasad Singh recently and offered the government a portion of the Urs grounds for construction of a hospital.

The trust requested the health department to build a hospital for the benefit of the residents of nearby localities.

Deputy secretary (health) Ram Kumar Sinha told The Telegraph: “Yes, the trust has offered us the land. They are ready to give us a portion, which will be enough to construct a 30-bed community health centre.”

Sinha added that the proposal was definitely under consideration because the discussed plot is near the state secretariat building (in Doranda), Nepal House.

“There is no hospital near Nepal House, which is situated on the eastern side of the grounds. We feel that a heal hub opposite to it will not only prove beneficial to the residents but the state employees as well as several government healthcare programmes can be carried out through it,” Sinha said.

Health minister Singh has directed the department officials to get the measurement of the proposed plot done and prepare a feasibility report.
