Jammu fast emerging as Educational Hub: Dr. Narinder

BJP State General Secretary, Dr. Narinder Singh, in a press statement, said that after the formation of government at the Centre, Jammu has been gifted with a number of prestigious educational institutions by Narendra Modi government and the establishment of Government Medical College of Ayurveda in Jammu after a gap of 42 years is one more success in the field of education. It was first Ayurvedic College, which was established in Jammu in 1962 but was closed down in 1975 during the rule of Sheikh Abdullah.
Dr. Narinder Singh said that the previous Congress and National Conference Governments had adopted a total indifferent attitude towards the vast region of Jammu and turned down every opportunity for the Jammuites. Be it Health, Technology, Education or anything else, Jammu had no place in the scheme of things of the successive governments, particularly NC, which always gave step motherly treatment to Jammu. These political parties kept befooling people of Jammu by buying the conscience of certain shrewd people showcasing themselves as public leaders but having their own vested interests and kept playing with the sentiments of the Jammu people.
He maintained that it was due to the apathetic approach of these political parties, the people of Jammu suffered in the fields of best healthcare facilities, and now when BJP has formed a coalition government in the state with PDP as its alliance partner, it has fulfilled the long pending demand of the Jammuites for an Ayurvedic College and Hospital, which is going to be established in Akhnoor town of the Jammu region. He also appreciated the role of Health Minister of the State, Bali Bhagat, who worked hard for the feast and now the 50 BAMS seats have been allotted from the current session with the help of BOPEE.
Dr. Narinder Singh said that most of the population is now preferring the AYUSH system of treatment for the ailments they are sufferings and this will go a long way in boosting their health status. He said that the traditional system of medicines “Ayurveda” is being followed in India and almost in all the parts of the world through times immemorial and even continuing researches in the field are adding to its credentials. BJP is committed to bring in all the best health and education facilities to Jammu, citing the examples of IIT, IIM and others, he added and said that Jammu is fast emerging as Educational Hub.
