Ranchi, April 14: The woes of Rajendra Institute of Medical Sciences (RIMS) students are far from over as Medical Council of India (MCI) today refused to withdraw the cancellation order of 90 students admitted to RIMS in 2007.
MCI, after the meeting of its executive committee at Calcutta today, referred the matter to its central committee at Delhi and asked the RIMS representatives to approach it.
Apprising The Telegraph about this, the RIMS students’ spokesperson, Alok Kumar, said the students started chalking out their strategy after getting the news from Calcutta, where RIMS director N.N. Agarwal, along with dean S.N. Choudhary, is camping to get a proper decision in favour of their students.
“We have started discussing strategies of intensifying our peaceful agitation but a final decision in this regard would be taken only after a detailed discussion on the matter with our director and dean, who are expected to return by tomorrow,” Kumar added.
Meanwhile, students continued their peaceful agitation on the 14th day today at the RIMS emergency unit and boycotted their classes as usual.
The agitation, however, has not affected medical services at the institute so far.
The students are on the warpath after MCI cancelled their admission on the ground of RIMS not fulfilling the guidelines. Choudhary and Agarwal could not be contacted for comments.
