Government established 262 new medical colleges, says Pradhan

Dharmendra Pradhan said that the Modi government had established 262 new medical colleges in the time it has been in power.

In a significant development in the field of medical education, Union Minister of Education Dharmendra Pradhan announced that 262 new medical colleges were established after the Narendra Modi government came to power in 2014.

Prior to 2014, the country had a total of 380 medical colleges. However, with the government's focused efforts, 262 new medical colleges have been built, providing opportunities for aspiring medical professionals and addressing the shortage of healthcare institutions.


In addition to the establishment of new medical colleges, Pradhan highlighted the government's commitment to the education and healthcare sectors.

He mentioned that the Modi government has sanctioned 692 Eklavya schools in tribal and backward districts of the country, ensuring access to quality education for underprivileged communities.

The minister also emphasised the government's focus on strengthening healthcare infrastructure.

Pradhan praised the swift response of Indian industries during the Covid-19 pandemic, as they not only started producing personal protective equipment (PPE) kits but also began exporting them to other countries.

Pradhan shed light on the establishment of All India Institutes of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) across the country. While only one AIIMS was built during the rule of the Gandhi family, the Vajpayee-led NDA government constructed six AIIMS.

The Modi government's commitment to providing quality healthcare services led to the dedication of 15 new AIIMS in the last nine years, ensuring better healthcare access for all citizens, he said.


Acknowledging India's rich cultural heritage and knowledge-based society, Pradhan highlighted the formulation and implementation of the national education policy after a gap of 34 years.

The Modi government's efforts in revamping the education sector have culminated in the implementation of a progressive education policy in 2020, empowering students with holistic and inclusive education.

Delhi BJP president Virendra Sachdeva emphasised that India's progress under the leadership of Prime Minister Modi has garnered global recognition.

The remarkable achievements in various sectors, including education and healthcare, have positioned India as a rising power.

The government's dedication to providing quality education and healthcare services to its citizens has set a strong foundation for India's growth and development.
