Following the instructions, the district authorities had also allocated 42 acres of land belonging to University Pharmaceutical Sciences College of Satavahana University for the medical college, which was well-connected by-pass road without any traffic snarls on a serene location.
However, after nine long years of wait, the government had sanctioned a medical college in Karimnagar town. Instead of setting up in the sprawling and serene locations on the shores of LMD reservoir, the ruling party leaders had set up the medical college on the premises of TS seeds in Kothapalli village on the outskirts of Karimnagar town for ‘obvious reasons’.
