Filmmaker Prakash Jha To Set Up Ultra-Modern Hospital In Bihar
Filmmaker Prakash Jha has offered to set up an ultra-modern medical college and hospital in his home district of Bettiah in Bihar.

Jha said his desire to turn the Mata Janki Kunwar Hospital in Bettiah to a full-fledged medical college and hospital was part of his goal to see Bihar on the development path.

"I would love to help and ensure better medical facilities to people in the state," Jha said during a visit here Friday.

Jha's announcement has come at a time when the nearly six-months-old Nitish Kumar government has declared its intention to invite private participation to develop the state's health sector in a big way.

Earlier, Jha offered to build a four-lane highway between Vaishali and Muzaffarpur districts in north Bihar, a project no private company wants to execute due to the poor law and order conditions in the area.

Jha's offer came after Nitish Kumar invited private companies to construct roads on a "build, operate and transfer" (BOT) basis.

Jha has also announced plans to build several multiplexes in Patna.

Jha, who hails from a village near Bettiah, campaigned for Nitish Kumar's Janata Dal-United during the assembly polls in 2005.

Well Mr.Jha - u can either be a good film maker or a good social reformer. u can't do both so stick to what u can do best, otherwise u will get frustrated. Good health facilities is reqd in the state but Jha can invite his influential friends to help rather than try to do it himself
