Vijayawada: Students of Fatima Medical College, Kadapa, created a flutter Wednesday bu climbing the Dr NTR University of Health Sciences building. They threatned to jump from the building if their problems are not solved by the government.
The students have been demanding the government relocate them to other government colleges following the cancellation of admissions of 100 students who joined the college in Kadapa for the academic year 2015-16. Medical Council of India cancelled the admissions due to the failure of the college management to comply with the norms.
Six students climbed the roof top of the Health University main building in the city on Wednesday and threatened to commit suicide if the government not found a solution to their problem.
The students and parents said that Health Minister Dr Kamineni Srinivas had assured them several times for the relocation to government colleges following the cancellation of admissions by the MCI and High Court as Fatima College had not followed the norms.
The students moved the Supreme Court and received the same judgment. In this backdrop, the students met Chief Minister Nara Chandrababu Naidu and Health Minister Dr Kamineni Srinivas eight months ago and sought their intervention in this regard. Despite their repeated representations, there is no response from the government.
On Wednesday, nearly 30 students of Fatima Medical College came to Vijayawada with their parents and staged a protest from afternoon to evening 7 pm.
In all, six students, including three girl students, climbed the roof top of the university main building and threatened to commit suicide but they came down about 7 pm as there is no response from the government.
Some students met Vice-Chancellor T Raviraju and informed their pathetic condition and explained how they were cheated by the college management.
The Vice-Chancellor told the students and parents that the government had to take a decision on relocation to the government colleges. He said he would act as per the instruction of the government. After five hours of high drama, six students came down and left the university.
Students and parents alleged that neither the officials nor the political leaders have responded to their plight and expressed concern over loss of two academic years.
The students have already suffered two-year loss from 2015-16 and 2016-17. Police convinced the students to come down and allowed them to leave the college.
