KALABURAGI: Chief Minister Siddaramaiah inaugurated the Kalaburagi branch of Sri Jayadeva Institute of Cardiovascular Sciences and Research here on Saturday.

“Everybody in the country and abroad appreciates Jayadeva Hospital. It is a government hospital, but it provides services like private/corporate hospitals. If it has become possible for Jayadeva Hospital to give quality service, why are other government hospitals not giving such quality treatment?” he asked.

The Chief Minister instructed the head of Kidwai Cancer Hospital to take Jayadeva Hospital as model and extend the best possible treatment to the poor.

“According to a survey, 55 per cent of men and 50 per cent of women in Bengaluru are suffering from diabetes. Lifestyle, food habits and tension are the main reasons,” he said.

The hospital would give free treatment to BPL card holders and those belonging to SC/STs. It would give treatment to beneficiaries of all health schemes of the government, he added.

Siddaramaiah announced that the government would extend Special Development Plan for another five years. A 500-bed hospital will be inaugurated in Bidar in six months.
