The Minister, who held a review meeting with officials of the Health department in Siddipet, spoke to Health Minister Etela Rajendar and Commissioner of Health and Family Welfare, Vakati Karuna in this regard.

The Minister also requested Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao, who inaugurated the double bedroom house colony in Siddipet town earlier this month, to set up basthi dawakhana in the colony.

The Minister has said that they will grant Rs 4 lakhs towards repairing of ANM Sub-centres, PHC buildings and Rs 16 lakhs to build a new ANM sub-centres. Rao has said that they have aimed to provide the best infrastructure facilities at all the hospitals.
