Narendra Modi to inaugurate super-specialty hospital
GN Bureau | April 16, 2016
Amidst rising tension over killing of four youths in firing by the army in north Kashmir and continuing protests across the Valley, prime minister Narendra Modi is scheduled to visit the border state on April 19.
His visit – a third one since he took charge at the centre – is mainly for inauguration of a super specialty hospital set up by the Shri Mata Vaishno Devi Shrine Board (SMVDSB) at Katra, 30 km from winter capital Jammu.
The 230-bed hospital has been set up in collaboration with Narayana Hrudayalaya Pvt Limited founded by renowned cardiologist Dr. Devi Shetty. Dr Shetty has set up 32 affordable super specialty hospitals across India.
The prime minister will dedicate the hospital to the people. This is the largest super specialty health care institution in the region. Speculations are rife whether Modi will take a detour to Kashmir where protests are continuing after the spate of killings.
