Med college in Kendrapada demanded

Friday, 30 September 2022 | PNS | BHUBANESWAR

There is a growing demand for setting up of a Medical College Hospital (MCH) at Kendrapada with a large number of people from Kendrapada staging a dharna near the Raj Bhavan here on Wednesday.

Students, senior citizens, women and activists of about 100 organisations participated in the dharna under the banner of the Kendrapada Medical College Establishment Committee (KMCEC).

Committee member Ajay Samal said Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik and other BJD leaders had promised to set up a Government MCH in the district during campaigning for the last general elections. “However, it appears that the CM has clearly forgotten his promise,” Samal, a retired Lecturer told media.

Former MLA Chinmay Beura condemned the Government inaction in taking steps to fulfil the promise.

In a memorandum to Governor Prof Ganeshi Lal, the committee urged him to exercise his power and direct the Government to declare establishment of a State-run MCH in Kendrapada.
