I have tremendous pressure on chief minister to set up a government medical college in Udupi after submitting a proposal.

About 20 acres of land will be required for setting up the college.

I went to Sanjivani with my long list of prescription. The chemist there were very polite and helpful. I understand they don’t, have most of the medicines as they just opened a few days back.

But they promised me to get the medicines within a week and even opted to call as they get them. Hope everyone supports them.
