Bhubaneswar: Scores of Under Graduate (UG) students of SCB Medical College and Hospital (SCBMCH) in Cuttack staged demonstration today demanding autonomous status to the medical institution.
According to sources, holding placards and shouting slogans, the students staged dharna outside the college premises. Besides, the students also boycotted classes.
The agitating students have alleged that despite CM Naveen Patnaik’s promise to grant autonomous status to the college, the state government’s has been lackadaisical in its approach.
“The lackadaisical attitude of the state government is the main reason that created a barrier in upgrading the college to a health university,” said the President of Student Union.
