Students of RIMS, Ranchi demand better facilities

More than 100 paramedical students of the Rajendra Institute of Medical Sciences(RIMS), Ranchi and Mahatma Gandhi Medical College, Jamshedpur held a protest at the gates of Jharkhand Combined Entrance Competitive Examination (JCECE) office here on Tuesday in support of their various demands.

The main demands of the paramedical students include improving facilities for studies and proper stipend. Piyush, Kumar, a protester said: "Our classes are not held regularly. We are made to work 10 hours a day and in return we do not even get any stipend. We want these issues to be looked into expeditiously. We also want separate colleges for paramedical students."

Nitish kumar, a paramedical student of RIMS, said: "We have been running from pillar to post giving our demand letters to all, including the PA to chief minster, health minister, secretariat, the college administration and Ranchi University. However, our demands have not been looked into. Now we have other option but to protest in the street to get our demands fulfilled."

When contacted, RIMS director Dr Tulsi Mahato said they were trying to give the best facility to paramedical students within the resources available. "The students are demanding separate colleges and teachers but we cannot do anything about it as it comes under the government's policy. All we can do is provide them facilities within the available resources as per the directions of government," he said.

Principal secretary (health) K Vidyasagar accepted that there are a few problems regarding paramedical education in the state. He said, "We are trying to strengthen the paramedical studies, but nothing can be done immediately." I have directed Praveen Chandra, chairman of the paramedical council, to give an audience to the protesting students and let us know about the actions we can take to at least solve some their problems immediately." source-timesofindia.indiatimes.com

RIMS Ranchi associate professor attacks director

RANCHI: The office of director at Rajendra Institute of Medical Sciences (RIMS) was in a complete mess on Tuesday with pieces of broken glass were strewn all over along with official files.

Angry with the RIMS management for not getting a promotion, associate professor Surendra Singh barged into the office of the director and tried to attack him besides creating a ruckus in the cabin. Singh appeared for the examination conducted to promote RIMS officials but failed to clear it.

An angry Singh told the media, "This is the second time I have taken the test but have not been promoted. Last time the test was conducted when Tulsi Mahato was the director .

My juniors have been promoted but not me. The director does not want to promote me".

Director of RIMS, Tulsi Mahato looked shaken by the sudden attack. He said, "Singh entered my cabin and first tried to attack me with a flag kept on my table which I resisted. Then he started using abusive language, and flung the files kept on the table claiming that I was responsible for his failure."

He added, "When the officials present here tried to force him out of the cabin, he broke the glass door. When I followed him outside, he even kicked me but the guards arrived and escorted him outside the building." The director said proper action will be taken against Singh. "We will call a meeting and decide on what actions would be taken against him," said Mahato. source-articles.timesofindia.indiatimes.com
