PUDUCHERRY:  The Communist Party of India sought the intervention of the Lieutenant Governor in the admission of students to private medical colleges in the Union Territory.

Briefing mediapersons at a press conference here on Saturday, CPI Puducherry secretary R Viswanathan said, though there is an admission committee headed by a retired judge of the High Court, it is not effective. He alleged that admissions to the private medical colleges are not done through the proper channel, but through improper ‘admission test’ and the interests of management are getting protected.

Though Supreme Court specified that there should be five members in the committee with experts, he said the panel in Puducherry comprises government and retired government officials. Secretary health and secretary education being the same person, a doctor of eminence from JIPMER should have been included in the committee or other experts from reputed institutions should have been nominated, Viswanathan said.

He alleged that the government has been  functioning in support of the private medical colleges and didn’t frame an admission policy.
