Karnal, April 13

Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar today announced to develop a civil hospital in the old building of Kalpana Chawla Government Medical College and Hospital (KCGMCH) till a new proposal is finalised.

Karnal has been without a civil hospital from December 2012 after it was merged in the KCGMCH under the previous government. The staff members of the hospital were also sent on deputation to KCGMCH.

Since then, several attempts have been made by the people and the staff members of the civil hospital who have been sent on deputation for a separate civil hospital in Karnal.

They had also approached the HAFED Chairman Harvinder Kalyan, Mayor Renu Bala Gupta, Health Minister Anil Vij and the CM.

The CM, while inaugurating the hospital and OPD buildings of KCGMCH, made the announcement about the civil hospital for the smooth functioning of national health programmes.

The government would develop a civil hospital in the district, but for the time being, it would be operated from the old building of KCGMCH, said the CM.

The residents hailed the decision of the CM. “We are happy as the CM has fulfilled our demand and gave us a double delight by opening two buildings of KCGMCH and the civil hospital,” said Mayor Renu Bala Gupta.
