Kolkata: Union Health Minister Ghulam Nabi Azad on Wednesday met West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee to discuss various health projects in the state.
Azad said they discussed setting up of a new medical college in the state, as well as a cancer hospital and a super-speciality hospital.
"It was a very good discussion. Once these projects start, Bengal would be benefited immensely," Azad told reporters after the meeting.
A new 200-bedded super-speciality block would be built at the Calcutta Medical College at an estimated cost of Rs 120 crore, he added.
