The Chief Minister said that Health department is a very important department to save human lives. Even five minutes happen to be very precious to save human life, he added.

He mentioned that changes have been made in recent days in view of the state of health department. He said that he was feeling over and over again for last six months that the health department had not been working the way it should have worked.

There were certain weaknesses in the health department, but at the same time, the measures were also not being taken to bring improvement in the state of health department, he regretfully pointed out. Therefore, two important initiatives were taken in compulsion, he added.

The Chief Minister said that he has taken information about the health department after he resumed the portfolio that certain things were not being taken serious. However, he hoped that the new Secretary would work for betterment of the department.
