Twitter war over medical colleges in Telangana : Its KTR vs Mansukh Mandaviya:

Hyderabad :  A twitter war has broken between Union Health Minister Mansukh Mandaviya and the IT minister of Telangana K T Rao on the issue of sanctioning of new medical colleges to Telangana. In a series of tweets K T Rao, son of the chief minister of Telangana mentioned that 16 new medical colleges were sanctioned by the chief minister of Telangana while 13 more sanctions of new medical colleges were in pipeline. In his tweet he asked “ “Let me tell you how many medical colleges our PM Modi ji sanctioned to Telangana—–zero.”

In response to these allegations, Mandaviya also tweeted, “How many proposals for medical colleges have been sent by your Telangana State Government? ‘Zero’.” He further clarified that PM Modi has sanctioned the highest number of public medical colleges in the shortest duration without partiality to those stated who made proposals.

K T Rao reacted to these clarifications made by Mandaviya and posted two communications from the former health ministers to the state government in 2015 and 2019. “Wish you had a review before you chose to respond. Attached are responses of your predecessors to the requests from Telangana Health Ministers from 2015 and 2019. Telangana Govt has consistently requested for medical colleges but the fact is your Govt delivered ZERO,” he said in a tweet.
