Gross injustice to T State students in medical seats
Seats being dubiously allocated to Andhra students, alleges Cong
Hyderabad: Allegations of injustice to medical seat aspirants from Telangana in MBBS counselling are leading to a row. Opposition parties are slamming the government for turning blind to injustice being meted out to aspirants for medical seats from Telangana.
AICC spokesperson Dr Sravan Dasoju alleged that the sons of the soil were being fraudulently subjected to gross injustice in medical seats defeating the very purpose of formation of Telangana State, which are being dubiously allocated to Andhra students. Therefore, he demanded a thorough investigation into the matter and also demanded cancellation of illegal allotment of seats under unreserved category.
"Telangana students are being fraudulently subjected to gross injustice in medical seats by defeating the very purpose of Telangana formation as the unreserved category seats being dubiously allocated to Andhra students by Kaloji Narayana Rao University of Health Sciences (KNRUHS). Ironically, the Telangana government seems to be blind to such fraudulent activity, for reasons best known to them," Dr Sravan said in an open letter written to the Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao on Monday.
According to him, in all the medical colleges including in the prestigious government medical colleges such as Gandhi Medical College and Osmania Medical College, the ineligible Andhra students were being allotted the medical seats in un-reserved quota denying the legitimate right to many eligible students from the State. Sadly, hundreds of Telangana meritorious students seem to have lost medical seats due to the illegal formula being adopted by the local health university during the admission process.
For example, 8 Telangana meritorious students who secured admissions in the 'unreserved quota' at Gandhi Medical College went to other colleges on their own discretion. Due to this, 8 students with better ranks should have been pushed up to the unreserved quota from the local reserved quota thereby ensuring those local seats are given to the local Telangana students only, he said.
