He said he had already discussed with Chief Minister Pramod Sawant the need for a Government Hospital.
He said Private colleges, along with Hospitals, are not affordable to OBC communities and so stressed Government colleges and hospitals.
He said currently, people can’t afford costly treatment in Private hospitals.
He pointed out that Sub District Hospitals like Ponda have no facilities, and At the time of emergency, people are forced to take treatment in private hospitals or shifted to GMC.
GMC is working beyond its capacity on medical facilities, doctors and consultants and needs additional Hospitals and Colleges for South Goa for growing requirements.
