Panaji: Goa Forward Party (GFP) President Vijai Sardesai demanded debate over the proposed private medical college in South Goa claiming that such projects were opposed in the past.

State Health Minister Vishwajit Rane on Tuesday had announced that South Goa District Hospital project in Margao town will have a private medical college.

Sardesai, in whose constituency the District hospital project is taking shape, said that the project of private medical college was never debated in the State cabinet.

“Health Minister has to answer how he will control the capitation fee in the proposed private medical college. How many seats would be reserved for Goans,” Sardesai said.

He recalled that in the past attempts to bring in Private Engineering college in the State had met with a strong opposition from the student community, due to which, the projects had to be shut down.

Reacting the statement, Rane said the college has been planned considering the policy of NITI Ayog and the central government.

“The former minister (Sardesai) never raised the issue when he was in the cabinet. Now he is trying to play politics over the issue,” the Health minister said.

He said that the rules about the private college have become stricter now and there are proper regulations which needs to be followed up.

“Politics should not be brought in the areas of Education and Health Care. Keep them away from politics,” he said.
