Director general, medical health, Dr Dipa Tyagi was also present in the meeting at the International Ramkatha Museum and Art Gallery in Ayodhya.

Pathak said quality medical care had to be ensured to devotees and saints expected to visit Ayodhya for the event. He directed the department to increase and list the number of beds in hospitals in Ayodhya and nearby districts. Pathak also told the department to set up control rooms for better coordination.

The deputy CM emphasized that there should be no compromise on the quality of medical care and the arrangements should be in place well in advance.
