The state government has given its nod for the construction of a government medical college in Panchkula, said BJP MLA Gian Chand Gupta, highlighting that developmental works worth Rs 600 crore have been carried out in Panchkula in the last two years. Gupta was addressing a conference in Sector 5 on completion of two years of BJP rule in the state. He said the medical college will be constructed on 32 acres of land in Sector 4, Mansa Devi Complex.
“Earlier the Western Command had proposed to build a Military Hospital at the site. However that proposal has now been shifted to Ambala. A medical college will now be set up in MDC and the government has given its final nod to it,” said Gupta.
Talking about other projects, he said Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar has made 16 announcements for Panchkula that are being undertaken on priority basis.
“The CM will announce 50 new schemes on the beginning of celebrations of 50th year of the state, in Gurugram. It will include laying the foundation stone of Rs 100 crore project of NIFT in Panchkula,” Gupta said.
Among other developmental works, he included upgrade of railway station, better road connectivity with trans-Ghaggar sectors, development of IT Park and setting up of Sanskrit university in MDC.
