Udupi, Oct 31: Foundation was laid for Koosamma Shambu Shetty Haji Abdulla Memorial women and children hospital in Udupi by chief minister Siddaramaiah near Alankar theatre on Sunday, October 30. . He symbolically planted a sapling at the proposed hospital site. Chief minister with the health minister Ramesh Kumar, Dr B R Shetty from BRS healthcare and district in-charge minister Pramod Madhwaraj  lighted the lamp at Town Hall in a brief foundation laying ceremony programme.

Speaking on occasion, Pramod Madhwaraj said “This is a happy occasion for the people of the district. But few people are unhappy and they are protesting. The project with an outlay of Rs 150 crore has only one intention of helping the poor and downtrodden. The hospital is under the government and is managed by monitoring committee headed by deputy commissioner. Dr B R Shetty is investing the money with a good intention of helping the area where he was born and brought up. I am happy to be part of this pro-poor project."

Chief minister Siddaramaiah speaking on the occasion said “I am aware about the small opposition to this project. Lack of right information is making them protest like this. This is not privatisation. This is only private and government mutual understanding for the benefit of poor people. The state government will continue its mission of helping the downtrodden in the society. 80% of the 135 promises made in the election manifesto have been fulfilled."

Dr B R Shetty said “I was the vice-president of Council here. I know this place very well and love this place. That is why I am here. I do not have to make money from a project like this. One day, I was shocked to see the condition of the district hospital and hence I gave a proposal to the government. I wanted to do some service to the society in memory of my mother. So this project has come up in her name. The hospital will run with the sole motive of service and nothing else.”
