Ramvir Upadhyay, a BSP MLA from Hathras’ Sadabad seat and once close to Mayawati, has met CM Yogi.

It is being told that he can join the BJP soon. Mukul Upadhyay, brother of Ramvir Upadhyay and former MLA, has already joined BJP.

Since then, Ramveer has been neglected in the BSP for a long time. In such a situation, it is being speculated that he too can stop the elephant ride and hold the lotus.

A colleague of Upadhyay confirmed the meeting on Sunday, saying that Ramvir Upadhyay had met Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath on Saturday at his government residence.

Meanwhile, BSP national general secretary Satish Chandra Mishra said that Upadhyay had become an MLA from the BSP ticket in the year 2017 but he sided with the contestants in the 2019 Lok Sabha elections.

The party suspended him from the party at the same time. He said that Upadhyay’s son is not a member of BSP.

If he joins BJP then it will not make any difference to BSP. The BSP is moving ahead strongly.

Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Friday laid the foundation stone of a 1,500 bed new wing at the Lok Nayak Jai Prakash Narayan (LNJP) Hospital, in a step towards providing high-quality healthcare amenities in the national capital.

The Delhi government’s target is to complete the project in 2.5 years to make the LNJP one of the biggest hospitals in the nation with a modular design and modern medical infrastructure.

Coming up in a 25 floor structure, this new wing will be the tallest building in the country and offer the best health care available under one roof, a statement said.

 

This fully air-conditioned, state of the art building will house 1,500 beds. This new wing at LNJP is estimate to cost Rs 462 crore, with per bed costing around Rs 30 lakh.

At the event, Kejriwal said with the additional 1,500 beds, LNJP Hospital’s overall capacity will rise to 3,800 beds.

Noting other governments spend Rs 1-1.5 crore per bed, he said that he believes in smart spending and effective utilisation of public funds.

“In the last five years, it has been of utmost importance that we improve the living standards of the people of Delhi. The AAP government has completed projects on time and saved cost as well which is then further utilised for the betterment of the city.

“Delhi government is the only government which has given ex gratia of Rs 1 crore to all those who sacrificed their lives during Covid-19 pandemic. We can’t bring back the heroes but we can help them in whatever way possible,” he said.

Health Minister Satyendar Jain said the building will have three main departments, a new medical block, new maternity wing and an advanced paediatric department.
