Chief Minister N. Rangasamy on Monday announced that the Kamarajar Welfare Scheme and the scheme to construct concrete houses for all would be among the projects that would be revived soon.

Speaking at the inauguration of the new mammogram machine at the Rajiv Gandhi Women and Child Hospital, he said several schemes aimed at the welfare of the people had been stopped because of difficulties in implementation. Now, they would be revived.

At the function, the new mammogram at the Rajiv Gandhi Women and Child Hospital was dedicated to the people.

It was installed at a cost of Rs. 93.91 lakh.

Schemes for children

The same day the Janani Shishu Suraksha Karyakram and the Rashtriya Bal Swasthya Karyakram were inaugurated.
