Sardar Rajas row: Students of MKCG, VIMSAR move HC
Bhubaneswar: Students of Veer Surendra Sai Institute of Medical Sciences and Research (VIMSAR) in Burla and Maharaja Krushna Chandra Gajapati (MKCG) Medical College and Hospital in Berhampur moved Orissa High Court today opposing the re-allotment of Kalahandi-based Sardar Rajas medical college students in their respective institutions.
The students knocked the HC doors citing that their institutions are ill-equipped to accommodate the additional strength and an alternative arrangement should be made for the students of Sardar Rajas students who have been caught in an imbroglio.
They too sought the State government be a part of the matter in the legal proceedings.
“If counseling happens, then compare the rank of 1900-2000 with the rank of 73. It will not only affect studies, but also disparity,” said petitioners counsel Ashok Kumar Mohapatra.
“The students who have scored much lower ranks will now study with us and this is intolerable,” said a protesting student of MKCG Medical College.
Earlier Saturday, students of VIMSAR had staged a silent protest in front of the institution protesting against the HC order to re-allocate 45 medicos of Sardar Rajas Medical College in their college.
Two days later, students of MKCG Medical College and Hospital took to streets opposing the HC order. Besides, demanding proper counselling, the students of Hi-Tech Medical College and Hospital here had taken out a rally in Master Canteen area.
