Flipkart Deal of the Day

Medics set out for Delhi

Ranchi, April 8: Two representatives of Junior Doctor’s Association (JDA) today left for New Delhi to request the officials of Medical Council of India (MCI) to be sympathetic towards the students of 2007 batch of Rajendra Institute of Medical Sciences (RIMS).

The representatives included Vijay Pratap Singh Tomar and Madhukar.

Spokesperson of the students’ body, Alok Kumar, said these representatives were part of a five-member delegation of RIMS, who will meet the MCI officials, day after tomorrow.

“The representatives will meet three other representatives of the RIMS delegation at New Delhi tomorrow. The other three members include RIMS director N.N. Aggarwal, dean S.N. Choudhary and hospital superintendent I.B. Prasad, who will take off from the Birsa Munda Airport tomorrow. All the five will meet the MCI officials day after tomorrow at 10.30am,” Kumar said.

Kumar added that the delegation would request MCI officials to reconsider their decision to strike off the names of 90 students of 2007 batch due to non-availability of adequate numbers of teaching staff in RIMS.

Meanwhile, the agitation of students and junior doctors of RIMS entered the ninth day today.

The protesters were noticed playing cards and chess in the emergency unit of premier medical college of the state. The students have challenged the decision of the MCI saying that they took admission in the institute after qualifying competitive examinations and it was wrong to deprive them from medical education without any justified reason.

The state government has already come in favour of students. Health minister Bhanu Pratap Shahi had met his counterpart in New Delhi and got positive assurance about resolving the matter. Union food processing minister, Subodh Kant Sahay, has also assured co-operation.
