Srinagar, June 2: Lieutenant Governor Manoj Sinha said on Friday that the government plans to open 129 health and wellness centres in Jammu & Kashmir by March 24.

According to the Kashmir News Observer (KNO), Sinha said at an inaugural event at the Kashmir University that 129 health and wellness centres would be functioning by March of next year.


He further said that “under the centrally sponsored scheme, 17 new Ayush dispensaries have been made operational, and 17 more dispensaries will be made operational from the current fiscal.”

“In five districts of Jammu and Kashmir, including Kulgam, Kuthua, Kupwara, Kishtiwar, and Samba, we are establishing 50-bed integrated Ayush hospitals.” “Since the outbreak of COVID-19 in 2020, at least half of the population of Jammu and Kashmir has been given an Ayush immunity booster and support medicines,” he added.

Speaking on the recent Y20 event meetings at the University of Kashmir, Sinha said, “After a long time, or I can say for the first time, University of Kashmir has gotten a chance to hold international event in which people of Kashmir took part by leaps and bounds.”

The LG said that the Y20 was a huge success and has become the talk of the town not just in India but also in other nations. “As such, it was a meeting of the tourism working group, and the main event will be held in Goa,” he stated.

He also thanked KU’s Vice Chancellor, teachers, and students for laying the groundwork for the success of this big occasion. “World Milk Day was observed in India yesterday.” “You will be pleased to know that the Government of India has decided to begin it in Srinagar,” Sinha stated.

The LG said that ministers from 16 states were in Kashmir. “I believe that whenever we hold such large events here, people have more faith and trust in the government,” he remarked.

Speaking about the Ayusman Bharat Digital Mission, Sinha said that Jammu & Kashmir has long been a focus of Ayurvedic health care, including Ayurvedic and Unani facilities.

He said that in order to improve ayurvedic medicine, the Health and Medical Education Department worked hard to establish the Government Ayurvedic Medical College in Akhnoor and Hospital, which has a capacity of 35 students.

“Similarly, a Government Unani Medical College and Hospital was established in Ganderbal, which, in addition to treating patients with illness, produces 60 doctors annually,” Sinha stated.

The LG further said that the tourist industry in Jammu and Kashmir has reached several milestones. “Almost 1.8 million tourists visited Kashmir last year.” I have previously said that during the G20 presidency, Jammu & Kashmir is establishing itself on the global tourism map.”
