Leaders from all parties cutting above their party lines have been extending support to Fathima Institute of Medical Sciences students who have been protesting at the Dharna Chowk for the last seven days.
The students who were forced to discontinue their first year MBBS course in the college because the MCI cancelled its recognition to the 2015-16 batch had been staging dharna on a daily basis at the venue. Over a dozen corporators of the YSRCP who were on a day long hunger strike in the adjoining slot surprised everyone by visiting the students and raising slogans against the government.
Former MP Vundavalli Arun Kumar visited the camp and expressed his solidarity with the striking students. ‘Everyone is given the impression that the problem has been resolved but that does not seem to be the case. We will take it to its logical end’, he said.
