Eknath Shinde-led government opens 700 health clinics named after Shiv Sena founder Bal Thackeray

Bombay: Maharashtra Chief Minister Eknath Shinde said on Tuesday that the government will set up 700 Aapla Davakhana (health clinics) in the state named after Shiv Sena founder Bal Thackeray. The prime minister said in a statement that strengthening health infrastructure remains a top priority of his government and that the health budget will be doubled.

“The aim of the Aapla Davakhana initiative is to provide medical facilities to people close to their homes. About 700 such clinics will open in the state, and Mumbai alone will have 227 such facilities, of which on October 2 50 have started.” the statement said.

The state government has decided to open a medical college in every district so that people in rural areas receive the best treatment, Shinde said.

District-level medical colleges will ensure the rural areas get enough doctors and paramedics, he said.

In addition, to strengthen health infrastructure in the state, primary health care centers, sub-hospital and rural hospitals will be classified, the prime minister said, adding that the government will also open catheterization labs in the state.

The development will take on significance in light of the upcoming elections for Brihanmumbai Municipality.

The announcement also came a day before the two rival factions of the Shiv Sena hold their annual Dussehra meetings.
