Bengaluru medical college named after Atal Bihari Vajpayee


Bengaluru, Nov 22 (IANS): The Karnataka government has named the medical college and research institute in the city's Bowring and Lady Curzon Hospital after former Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee.

"The state-run medical college opened in 2018-19 has been renamed Sri Atal Bihari Vajpayee Medical College and Research Institute," Health and Medical Education Minister K Sudhakar said here on Sunday.

Located in Shivajinagar in the city's central business district, the 152-year-old hospital has also been teaching students pursuing medical degrees since late 19th century during the British Raj.

Deemed an autonomous university, the institute was named Lady Curzon Hospital by then Mysore Commissioner Lewin Benthon Bowring when he opened it in 1868 with 104 beds, including 24 for women patients.

"The college-cum-hospital has been in the forefront of fighting the coronavirus pandemic along with the state-run Victoria Hospital in the city market area," said Sudhakar.

    Readers comments & views emphasize and make an effort to associate/attach the word honesty with our honourable Ex PM Vajapayeji, itself is a testimony to the fact that it's an exception in the political party he belongs to..., and there's no doubt about it...

    It may be recalled that the Passport Office in Bangalore was opened when Vajpayee was FM in 1977. The metro and the new airport were initiated during his tenure as PM. In a way he had made some worthy contributions to Bangalore while holding political positions. So naming an institution in the city after him should not be deemed as unworthy.

    Is indepandance of India named after congress martyrs and leaders???????....ISRO, Nuclear facilities are brain child of congress. Are any one of them named after congress leaders??????????.....Is 1971 victory of India against Pakistan and creation of Bangla Desh named after Indira Gandhi??????. .......Did congress seek after taking credit for groundbreaking historic economic reforms of 1991. BTW, do you have anything to compare these historic fetes of this caliber yet congress leaders did not go after the fame.

    So why are you not naming Bangalore passport office and Bangalore metro station after his name, why are naming the entire hospital after Vajpayee which was fully built by Bowring in 1868. Only one small part of it is done by BJP recently, so name alone that part after Vajpayee???????..........

    Sunil Dutt was an honest politician. He did not want to give his name to anything which was built by others effort and money. We cannot find such politicians now. We should not forget the sacrifice of others. If somebody has built for our nation, we should preserve whatever the name he has given, as a token of thanks.

    Neither Lady Curzon nor Bowring were medical professionals. In B'lore there's also Rajiv Gandhi University for Medical Sciences. All named were political heads or administrators. None of them were specialised in medicine.

    This party came to power in name of Hindutva and development .
    When you could not make development, you cannot build one Hospital why you want to change the name.
    Someone made development someone added someone's name and bhakth called Development

    If anyone talks they will say Hard work like Modi 8years age he sold Tea for Rs 2 means 1958 Cup of tea cost Rs 2. Manglore Taj mahal hotel 1974 tea bill was 0.08 Picas

    Still people can understand Modi Logic? real thing there was no Train station at all that time .

    1868 hospital now renamed in the name of Vajpayee.
    If Vadra Congress wanted to rename in Nehru or Gandhi name they would have done it much before chaiwala selling tea.
    don't surprise if it will be sold to Adani shortly.

    Name changing is one of the easiest way to get credit. Political leaders playing with the emotions of people and polarizing the community.
    What is the benefit of changing names? Is there any changes facilities provided? All waste of money of printing new stationery.

    If you think name change does affect you but it does affect, better you shut your mouth and carry on with your routine.
    Name change makes a lot of impact ,irrelevant names to be removed not only hospital but many. Or else it looks invaders still exists in this country.

    Those hospitals were not built by the British with their own funds.They used the wealth they looted from this country. Will you be happy if the hospital is named after Auranzeb or Taimur? Or if named after your leaders like Nehru and others of his kind?

Do you have any plans now to sell these to your friends with privatization in mind where you have done nothing to establish them in first place??????????.....
