Lone said: "A gynae-cum-pediatric hospital worth 16 crores would be established in the area under the plan for which 20 Kanals of and would be earmarked soon.”
"It took sometime to implement the plan, though all measures were taken to ensure that the land holders of the area were rehabilitated," he said.
