Following is a report from the TOI:
BHUBANESWAR: The state government on Tuesday lodged an FIR against A John Sel Raja, president of Sardar Rajas Medical College and Hospital, Jaring, for criminal breach of trust at Junagarh police station in Kalahandi district, government sources said.

The Western Odisha Development Council (WODC) lodged the complaint accusing him of violating the memorandum of understating (MOU) he signed with WODC, fraudulent documentation and playing with the future of hundreds of medical students, a government officer said. Earlier, the government had issued show-cause notices to it, but Raja allegedly did not reply.

Fate of 124 MBBS students of the college, admitted in two batches in 2013 and 2014, remain uncertain as the college doesn’t have minimum infrastructure and faculty to run the institution as described in the statutory norms of Medical Council of India (MCI).

The students are on dharna in front of the college since July 30 seeking government intervention to rescue them from the situation. They have also moved the Orissa high court seeking its intervention. The MCI has debarred the college from admitting students this year.


Entry filed under: Bhawanipatna-Dharmagarh, Health Care Facility, Higher Education Zone, Kalahandi, Region watch, Sardar Raja Medical College (WODC), Kalahandi.

    As an expert member of wodc I had visited the medical college 2008 or 09. Our committee had recommended to govt and to wodc to buy the college infrastructure back from MR Raja and run it as a govt medical college. Running a medical college
    by a private for profit company is not possible at that remote location and it is the duty of govt of Orissa to take it over.
