By CORRESPONDENT

IMPHAL, May 14 - Union Health and Family Welfare Ministry has approved the proposal of setting up a cancer hospital at Jawaharlal Nehru Institute of Medical Sciences (JNIMS) in Manipur.

Manipur Health and Family Welfare Minister L Jayantakumar disclosed this while addressing an event here on Sunday. Union Health Minister Dr JP Nadda had also made an assurance in this regard when he had called on the Union Minister recently.

Jayantakumar conveyed that he met Nadda in Delhi and the latter gave his consent to establishment of a cancer hospital with 100 beds at JNIMS.

With the exception of a single radiotherapy unit at RIMS, there is no cancer treatment facility in Manipur.

As such, there is an urgent need for a cancer hospital in the State, Jayantakumar said. Driven by this urgent need, the State Government has been lobbying with Central Government to sanction funds for setting up a cancer hospital with 100 beds.

Jayantakumar held a meeting with Nadda at his office this afternoon and the Union Health Minister gave his consent to the State Government�s proposal for setting up the hospital. Nadda assured that funds required for the cancer hospital would be sanctioned by Central Government.
