The two day bandh at Kalahandi district, Odisha, called by Kalahandi Medical College demanding government take-over of Sardar Rajas Medical College at Jaring, has affected normal life.
Minister of Health and Family Welfare, Atanu Sabyasachi Nayak said the decision will be taken only after the High Court order where a case is pending.
Members of the private bus owners association, traders association and labor unions have also extended support to the bandh.
Normal life was disrupted in Kalahandi with shops and daily market remaining closed on account of the Bandh.
The Medical Council of India (MCI) had approved 100 seats for the medical college for 2013-14 academic year. The college had taken 124 students for the academic year.
But the MCI canceled the student-intake approval in 2014-15 citing poor infrastructure and lack of faculties as reasons. However the college took 30 students as the Supreme Court gave a ruling in favor of it.
