Following is a report from The Pioneer:

It seems finally Chief Secretary Tarun Kanti Mishra has come to the rescue of thousands of citizens demand for a medical college at Rourkela. He has taken up the issue with the Secretary of the Union Ministry of Steel.

Residents of the steel town have been demanding an ESIC (Employees’ State Insurance Corporation) Medical College for more than two years. However, the ESIC has decided to set up its medical college in Bhubaneswar as the State Government offered land on the outskirts of the capital city.

The people of Rourkela in general and intelligentsia in particular took up the issue at various forums. Political personalities cutting across party lines also demanded an ESIC medical college at Rourkela. But the demand was overlooked and, as usual, the e-mail petitions in this regard were coolly ignored.

While the Steel Authority of India Limited (SAIL) has proposed to upgrade the Bokaro Steel Plants’ hospital to a medical college, a similar move is needed for Odisha, feels Chief Secretary Mishra. He discussed the matter with the Union Secretary of Steel in order to set up a medical college at Rourkela under the aegis of the Ispat General Hospital (IGH).
