We Inaugurated It Way Before, Says Mamata Banerjee On Modi Inaugurating Hospital At Kolkata

Kolkata: On January 7 amid the PM Modi's inauguration of Cancer Hospital at Kolkata, West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee said that they have already inaugurated it. Banerjee said that Modi was showing interest in the second campus of Chittaranjan National Cancer Institute in Kolkata after she inaugurated it.

"The Prime Minister is virtually inaugurating this project. But let me inform the PM that we inaugurated it way before as this institute is associated with the state government as well," Bengal CM Mamata Banerjee said on Friday. "The PM will be happy to know that the state is funding 25% of the project. We also gave the land for the campus of the cancer hospital," she said.

She, however, thanked the PM for inaugurating the campus and dedicating it to the people of India.

Further she made an appeal to PM Modi for increasing Medical seats in the state.

She also complained that that the Governor often interferes in the Bengal government's decisions despite following the Centre's directions.

"The state government has also signed an MoU with Tata Cancer Hospital in Mumbai. We have set up a 300-bed facility for paediatric patients," she added.

"We have ensured through our works that our country won't get a bad reputation. We have started various schemes like Swasthya Sathi and have started dialysis centres. People are also getting 40% concession on medicines," she said.

She said that vaccination in the state was on track and sought more vaccine doses from the Centre. "Vaccine wastage is zero in Bengal," she said.
