Chandigarh, March 04:

Nearly a century after the Lady Harding Medical College was established for women in New Delhi, a medical college for women is being set up in the government sector in Haryana, a minister said here Tuesday.

"United Progressve Alliance (UPA) chairperson Sonia Gandhi will dedicate the Bhagat Phool Singh Government Medical College for Women at Khanpur Kalan in Sonipat district (50 km from New Delhi) to the people of Haryana on March 8," Haryana Health Minister Narender Singh said.

"This women's medical college has been set up in government sector after a gap of nearly 100 years as the Lady Harding Medical College, Delhi was established in 1914," Singh said.

The foundation stone of the college was laid by Sonia Gandhi in March 2009.

He said that the institute is being developed at a cost of Rs.700 crore.

Haryana has already set up an all-women university at Khanpur Kalan.
