'MCI team to visit Kodagu district soon'

Madikeri, Jan 13, 2013, DHNS:

District-in-charge minister M P Appachu Ranjan has said that a team from Medical Council of India (MCI) will inspect the land identified for the construction of Medical College in Kodagu district soon. The work on the building will commence shortly.

Speaking to presspersons here on Friday, he said that the college will be started with an intake of 100 students.

“We have inspected several buildings to start classes and hostels on a temporary basis. It has been planned to convert nurse training centre as ladies hostel, hostel of sports department as boys hostel and inspection bungalow on Mangalore road as an administrative office or classrooms. The government has released Rs five crore towards the construction of the building. The MLA fund and funds available with the minister will also be utilised for the purpose,” he said.

Ranjan clarified that the birth anniversary of Field Marshal K M Cariappa will be observed by the district administration in Madikeri, on January 28.


The minister said that those poor families who have been residing on the government land for generations will not be evicted. Only those who have constructed temporary sheds on the government land and sacred groves will be evicted. “We are identifying land for the construction of houses for the poor.”

Solve traffic menace

In the back of dense traffic in Madikeri, Congress office bearers of the town demanded for a smooth traffic system and submitted a memorandum in the regard to deputy superintendent of police Rajiv Mang  on Wednesday. The members urged to modify the traffic system in the town for the well being of pedestrians and riders. The members insisted on the modification of the parking areas in Mysore and Mangalore road and allowing the movement of bus, truck and other large vehicles in Raja Seat road, since there is lot of density of vehicles and pedestrians in the heart area of the town.

Town Congress president Haroon, corporation member Chummi Devaiah, Abdul Razak and others were present.
