Deadlock over medical counselling in Telagana
Deadlock Over Medical Counselling In Telagana. Medical counselling in Telangana state has been creating confusion among students and officials.
Hyderabad: Medical counselling in Telangana state has been creating confusion among students and officials. The government has already issued a notification for EAMCET-2015. In this backdrop questions are arising about the counselling. In erstwhile Andhra Pradesh, NTR Health University at Vijayawada had conducted medical counselling. TRS government issued GO No.22 on September 26 for establishing of Kaloji Narayana Rao Health University in Warangal which will be built in allotted 175 acres.
Even after six months, new building, administration, website, logo and other works are yet to materialise. By appointing State Medical and Health Principal Secretary Suresh Chanda as its Vice-Chancellor, the government seems to have washed hands. After a while, Dr.Raju, a Professor of Osmania General Hospital was appointed as Registrar. Ironically in the wake of allegations of corruption against the then Minister for health Rajaiah and other medical and health department higher officials, Chief Minister K.Chandrasekar Rao dropped Rajaiah from the cabinet, subsequently Dr.Raju was also removed from Registrar’s post. After that, the government hasn’t taken responsibility for University management, administration.
“This year there may arise some issues at the time of Medical counselling. The government has announced that JNTU would conduct EAMCET-2015 on May 14 and will announce results on May 28,” said an official.
Later the process of counselling for Engineering and medical will start. In 2014, JNTU conducted counselling for Engineering and Medical counselling by NTR Health University. With the intention of conducting Medical counselling, KCR government has started to establish Kaloji Health University. So Kaloji University should conduct the medical counselling. However, students are expressing concern over the government’s lack of clarity on counselling.
Meanwhile, the government is wondering what would happen if State medical seats would add to National Medical seats pool. “If the government has showed interest in counselling at National level, private Medical college managements may pressure the government to permit filling up of management quota seats. In case those management sell medical seats openly, poor students will be deprived a chance to study medicine,” said a higher official of the medical education department.
A Student organisation State Secretary demanded that the government should remove the deadlock on Medical Counselling.
