sangrur, September 13

The Punjab Government has started the process to construct a Government Medical College (GMC) in Malerkotla. The Sangrur administration has begun the formalities to acquire land on the behalf of the Punjab Waqf Board and sought proposals from area residents.

In 2018, the government had announced setting up three new GMCs across Punjab. One of them was proposed for Sangrur district. Till some months ago, it was expected that the new GMC will be set up near Sangrur city and initially, a piece of land in Gharachon village was also inspected. In February this year, residents of Badrukhan village passed a resolution to give panchayat land for the construction of the GMC in their village and sent a proposal to the government. But the latest development has come as a surprise for many though area residents are satisfied that their district will get a GMC in the coming time.

“Whether it’s built in Malerkotla or Sangrur, it does not matter. The GMC will benefit all residents,” said Ashinderpal Singh, a Class XII student. As per an order of the Sangrur Deputy Commissioner released on Sunday, he has sought proposals till September 18 from area residents to acquire their land to establish a GMC in Malerkotla-2 block. — TNS
