How did Lucknow get a 1000 bed Covid Hospital

April 21 2021

The corona pandemic has shown its ugly side in Lucknow too and incidentally, Lucknow is also the Parliamentary constituency of Union Defense Minister Rajnath Singh, who is known to be more sensitive about his parliamentary constituency. When he started receiving calls from relatives and well-wishers of Covid patients from Lucknow from morning to evening that even serious patients are not getting beds in the hospital, Rajnath’s office started calling up all the hospitals in Lucknow. But the problem was that VIPs had already occupied the beds of the hospitals. Particularly in the state where right from the Chief Minister to DGP and Additional Chief Secretary are down with an infection, if there is a complaint, then with whom would Rajnath contact? In such a situation, a person close to Rajnath suggested that since DRDO is subordinate to his ministry, he can talk to its higher officials and get a temporary Covid hospital built there, and this is how the concept of 1000 bed Covid Hospital became a reality.
