Meanwhile, Union health and family welfare minister Mansukh L Mandaviya visited Post Graduate Institute of Medical Education and Research (PGIMER), Chandigarh, on Sunday.

He was accompanied by Information broadcasting and sports and youth affairs minister Anurag Singh Thakur.

The minister was apprised of the hospital structure, the advanced centres of patient care, training and research as well as upcoming new centres like the advanced neurosciences centre and advanced mother and child care centre. He was also shown the progress on the three PGI satellite centres at Sangrur, Ferozepur (Punjab) and Una (Himachal Pradesh).

While explaining the patient load at various areas in the hospital, it was emphasised that many referrals can be dealt with at the level of the district hospitals and medical colleges in the region. However, many patients still prefer to come to PGI for their treatment.
