Pankaj Singh, the newly elected member of legislative assembly (MLA) from the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Wednesday inaugurated a primary health centre in Raipur Khadar in Sector 126.

The building of the health centre was constructed by the Noida authority and later handed over to the health department for operations. The seven-bed facility will cater to three villages with over 10,000 residents and is supposed to provide medical care round the clock.

Officials said the health centre is a step towards taking medical facilities closer to people. The centre will also provide first aid and neonatal care on a daily basis and later have a physician and an ophthalmologist too.

After inaugurating the health centre, Singh addressed the residents gathered. He said doctors will be available to attend to the patients at the health centre where free medicines would also be available to patients.

The MLA said that his party is committed to improving medical facilities and medical care in the state so that the underprivileged do not suffer. There are villages in Uttar Pradesh where doctors do not go to attend patients, but that will not happen in the present regime, he said.

“The people of Noida have reposed their faith in me and it is my responsibility to ensure that their basic facilities and amenities are not compromised,” he added.

The MLA was accompanied by the district magistrate of Gautam Budh Nagar, NP Singh. He also addressed the gathering and said there are various schemes meant for the public and if they face a problem, it should be reported to the authorities so that appropriate steps can be taken to address them.
