NEW DELHI: The Uttar Pradesh’s Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath has started work on emplacement for six AIIMS including 25 new medical colleges in the state, as the BJP had promised during the the assembly polls.
“We promised to open six AIIMS and 25 new medical colleges in the state. We have started working in this direction.
Once we shortlist areas for setting up these institutions, we will send a proposal to the Centre through the Chief Minister,” Minister for Technical and Medical Education Minister Ashutosh Tondon Gopalji said.
AIIMS and medical colleges/institutions are more valuable than other things because these two things are mandatory to people catering to health needs and medical education. The institutions will be complete in the next five years.
He added, “Our first priority is to enhance the quality in the field of education in all institutions. This is why, we are focusing on filling up vacant teaching posts.”
“I have directed to fill up 500 vacant posts of teacher before the start of new session,” he added.
On students facing problems in finding job opportunities after pursuing courses in these institutions, Tondon said, “Once quality is ensured, the students will also be able to get good jobs in the market.”
The government is also planning to hold ‘rozgar mela’ (job fair). These fairs will be started in the next three months to ensure that students of management and engineering get job, he said.
There are more than 600 private and 13 government engineering colleges in the state.
