In a tribute to former Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee, Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath laid the foundation of a 300 bedded hospital under the establishment of King George Medical University at Balarampur yesterday. He also laid the foundation stone of Atal Bihari Vajpayee Medical College and Satellite Centre of King George Medical University in Balrampur district. With this the state government has directly linked the first parliamentary constituency of former Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee to the King George Medical University in Lucknow. For the first time in Uttar Pradesh, a satellite center of a medical institution is being established in another district. Balrampur is considered a backward district in the field of health and medical education and comes under the category of aspirational district of the Government of India.
Former Prime Minister Atal Behari Vajpayee had an emotional connection with the people of Balrampur. This was the place from where he started his electoral career by reaching the Parliament from here in 1957.
