The 2015-16 batch MBBS students of Fathima Institute of Sciences, Kadapa have urged Chief Minister Nara Chandrababu Naidu to intervene and address their problem.
On Tuesday, the students whose admission into FIMS was cancelled by Medical Council of India along with their parents launched a two day hunger strike at Dharna Chowk. It may be recalled that the Supreme Court dismissed the plea for recognition of the admission. ‘Our families are in a state of shock, We are now banking on the assurance given by the Chief Minister who could take up the issue with the MCI and do justice for us. If they do not come up to our rescue, the only option we have is to end our life’, they said.
Meanwhile, AP Health Minister Kamineni Srinivas promised to take up the issue after the Supreme Court judgement. Student unions such as PDSU, SFI, YSRSU and leaders of the Congress and the CPI extended their support to the agitating students.
