Medicos on hunger stir seek MCI nod to write final exams

Around 300 MBBS students of the ACS Medical College took to the streets on Friday, urging the Medical Council of India (MCI) to allow them to write their final year exams.

The students have been protesting outside their campus in Vellapanchavadi for the past five days and went on a hunger stir outside the Valluvar Kottam on Friday.

The medicos of the 2008 and 2009 batches said that they were stuck in limbo since their college lost its affiliation and got its recognition cancelled by the MCI. It had not been allowed to admit any students since 2010. “When we joined, the college was affiliated to the Dr MGR Educational and Research University. Two months after we joined, in December 2008, the MCI sent us all discharge letters, asking the college to shut and send us away, but the management concealed that from us,” alleged a final year student.

“We had filed an emergency case in the High Court in January, but it is still pending and once the court goes on summer vacation, that will be the end of it,”  another final year student said, adding, “We appeal that the government intervene and get us transferred to another university, so that we can graduate in time.”
