News Tech: The Shiromani Akali Dal demanded the setting up of super-speciality cancer hospitals in Amritsar and Jalandhar under the aegis of the Homi Bhabha Cancer Hospital and Research Centre of Mohali which will be inaugurated by the prime minister Wednesday.
It is going to be a red-letter day for Punjab that the war on cancer initiated by former chief minister Parkash Singh Badal resulted in the successful completion of Homi Bhabha Cancer Hospital and Research Centre, Majithia said. ”Badal visited the Tata Memorial Centre and requested its board to establish the Homi Bhabha hospital in Mohali. It became the first such institute to be approved by the Tata Memorial Centre Board outside Mumbai.
Former minister and Akali leader Bikram Singh Majithia welcomed Prime Minister Narendra Modi ahead of the inauguration of the project and also noted the contribution of former prime minister Manmohan Singh in approving it. Prime Minister Modi will visit Punjab on August 24 and inaugurate the Homi Bhabha Cancer Hospital and Research Centre in the Mohali district.
”We are also proud that the erstwhile SAD-led government allotted 50 acres of land for the institute in Mohali,” the SAD leader said in a statement here.
