The Kalahandi district administration has earmarked a 40-acre land near Bhanagabari village, four km from here, on the NH-59 that connects Khariar-Nuapada district for the proposed medical college.
Collector (Kalahandi) Brundha D said it is a suitable place for the hospital as it is well-connected. The land belongs to directorate of animal husbandry and veterinary services. “We will inform the state government to make a final call,” the collector said. Following Dana Majhi issue, the state government announced to set up a government medical college here and subsequently it had asked the district administration to find a 25-acre land near Bhawanipatna.
Sub-collector Sukanta Tripathy (Bhawanipatna sub-division) said a place was required for the setting up of the medical college within five-km radius of the town and the patch fulfils the criterion.
