MP Nalin Kumar Kateel, recognizing the importance of this initiative, met with the union health minister and appealed for the opening of a CGHS facility in Mangaluru. Responding to this appeal, Dr Mansukh Mandaviya, the union minister of health and family welfare, wrote a letter to MP Nalin, confirming that CGHS wellness centres would be established in 20 cities across India, including Mangaluru.
