Sangrur, August 8

The state government today released Rs 71 crore for the Sant Baba Attar Singh State Institute of Medical Sciences, the foundation stone of which was laid by Chief Minister Bhagwant Mann at Mastuana Sahib here three days ago.

Finance Minister Harpal Singh Cheema said, “About Rs 50 crore has been released for the hostels and the rest of the amount is for upgrading the Sangrur civil hospital and constructing another floor in the hospital.”

The medical institute will come up over an area of 25 acres, with an estimated cost of nearly Rs 345 crore. The civil hospital will be attached to the medical institute.

“The state government is committed to completing the construction by March 31, 2023. It has approved 1,020 posts for the institute. The academic session will begin on April 1 next year,” said the minister.

He hit out at the previous Congress and SAD-BJP governments for “paying lip service to the healthcare sector”. “The AAP government will fulfil all pre-poll promises,” Cheema added.
