Cuttack,November 16: Odisha High Court today has said the Health Secretary Aarti Ahuja to be personally present at the court for the next hearing on Tuesday over the Sardar Rajas Medical College row.

Hearing the case pertaining to the rejection of admissions in Sardar Rajas Medical College.

MCI has proposed that students of Sardar Rajas Medical College, who had taken admission under government quota, should be accommodated in government medical colleges and those who came under management quota should be absorbed 
in private medical colleges.
