Hyderabad: Telangana Deputy CM Dr Rajaiah blamed Andhra Pradesh leaders for the loss of medical seats and said continuous efforts from the government led to the MCI sanctioning the seats. “We have made continuous efforts at all levels, meeting the MCI officials regularly and we have got back 200 medical seats. This is the first victory of the Telangana government,” Dr Rajaiah said.

The MCI had sanctioned 800 MBBS seats from this year in medical colleges in Andhra Pradesh. “AP got more seats because its leaders took care of their region and Telangana was neglected. T leaders of the previous government neglected the issue completely,” he said.

 

Dr Rajaiah also said that list of ailments under the Arogyasri scheme would be expanded and made available at all Primary Health Centres and government hospitals. “There is a perception that the scheme is mostly for corporate hospitals, while efforts are on to make sure that it is also available in all Primary Health Centres. Minor conditions like malaria, typhoid among others, will also be included so that people don’t wait till their condition worsens,” added Dr Rajaiah.
