Talcher Outfit Calls For Economic blockade Over Medical College

TALCHER:As the state government is yet to make notification on the date of commencement of Talcher medical college,an outfit called Talcher Medical College Action Committee has called for  42 hour-economic blockade of Talcher Coalfield From July 4 next.

A meeting to this effect was held today by the committee where people from all walks of life attended and participated in the deliberations. The meeting was held under the chairmanship of Padma Charan Samal.

The adviser of the committee Digambar Garnaik has said that from July 4 there will be embargo on coal transportation from Talcher coalfield for72 hours for the fulfilment of the demand. He said,”We demand the government should come out with a specific date for starting Rs 492 core Talcher Medical college though it has agreed to take over the management. Government agreed to take over the management after MCL committed to  meet all expenditures of the medical college. But  in spite of that the  government has not declared the date of the medical college to start”.

Garnaik said that there will be no coal  despatch from Talcher either by rail or road to anywhere outside Talcher. He however said that there will be no stoppage of production of coal in Talcher coal mines during the economic blockade.

Earlier,the action committee had called for the economic blockade but it was postponed after the state government announced to take over the management of the medical college.

Earlier,the BJP state secretary Kalandi Samal had urged the chief minister to declare the date of opening of the medical college when MCL agreed to bear the coast and all the expenditure..He credited union minister Dharmendra Pradhan for the initiation of the medical college ever since his parliament member from 2004 to 2009.

Though the Talcher Medical college is  ready by MCL at the cost of 492 crores,there was a tussle between the MCL and the state government as to who will take over the management although  in MOU the state government was to take over the management.

 After long drawn talks between the state government and MCL it has been agreed recently that the state government will take over the management of the college while  MCL will bear the expenditure. But till date,the state government has not announced the date of the opening of the college and commencement of medical college. This has created heart-burn among the people of the Talcher and Angul district.
