19th June 2021: In a bid to provide easy access to proper health and medical facilities to people in Uttar Pradesh, the Yogi Adityanath government will connect all the primary health centres (PHCs) and community health centres (CHCs) in both rural and urban areas of the state to the main roads.
After an exemplary handling of the Covid-19 pandemic, Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath has issued directives to substantially expand road connectivity in a systematic manner to connect all primary health centres (PHCs) and community health centres (CHCs) in the entire state to the main routes so that the medical facilities gets within reach of people.
There are a total of 3011 PHCs and as many as 855 CHCs in the state. While the number of PHCs in the urban areas is about 592. The state capital has over 9 CHCs, 28 PHCs, 52 health post centres and 8 urban PHCs.
In pursuance of CM Yogi’s orders, the work to improve road connectivity and to improve the condition of roads has also intensified. The construction and repair work of dilapidated roads is being done at a rapid pace. The Department of Urban Development, Municipal Corporations, PWD, Gram Panchayats, urban and rural bodies have been given the responsibility to improve the condition of road network.
With the second wave of Covid-19 receding and the monsoon season around the corner, the Yogi Adityanath government has not only geared up to combat water-borne diseases, such as encephalitis and malaria but has also made special efforts to expedite road maintenance in order to remove any sort of obstructions faced by the patients in having access to health centres.
It is to be mentioned that ever since Yogi Adityanath took over the reins of the Uttar Pradesh government as the Chief Minister, improving connectivity to speed up qualitative change in the development of the state has been among the top priorities of the government.
The four upcoming expressways — the 341-km Purvanchal, 297-km Bundelkhand, 92-km Gorakhpur Link and the 594-km Ganga expressways — are scripting a silent transformation in the state, once notorious for its decrepit road infrastructure.
All the four expressways, interlinked, will bring the remotest and backward regions closer to not only state capital Lucknow but also Delhi and beyond, opening up markets and giving a big boost to socio-economic development in the region.
