Punjab: State Minister for Medical Education and Research Chetan Singh Jauremajra said here on Monday that the Punjab government had approved the creation of 25 more seats in the Government Medical Colleges of Patiala and Faridkot.

He claimed that the health and education sectors, which are the two main areas of concern, are being improved by the administration, which is why more seats have been added to both medical colleges under the leadership of Chief Minister Bhagwant Mann.
