The government medical college in Raigarh, named after state’s veteran Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Lakhiram Agrawal, was set up in 2013. But the college lacked faculties and other facilities. The medical council of India (MCI) had earlier expressed its displeasure over the dearth of resources in the medical college.
