Azad was addressing a gathering after inaugurating a multi disciplinary health care facility of medical, dental, physiotherapy, nursing, pharmacy and ayurveda at KLE University in Belgaum here.
“I am happy to note that KLE a 96 year old University is an excellent example of the fact that in our country the modern and the traditional systems not only co-exist but are flourishing,” Azad said.
He noted that new facilities at the KLE will add to the capacity and capabilities of the University in providing holistic education to the students and care to the patients. “Private sector has to also play important role by sharing the responsibilities of the State not only in funding medical education but also in providing health care services to the needy,” Azad said
