Students not to be admitted in Government Medical College

Students not to be admitted in Government Medical College

The Medical Council of India has denied the Government Medical College and Sri Venketeswara Medical College and Research Centre permission to admit students in the current year.

However, the council renewed permission for Sri Manakula Vinayagar Medical College and Hospital to admit 150 students in the current year.

The MCI has posted the information on its website

When contacted, Home Minister E. Valsaraj, who also holds the Health portfolio, confirmed that the government medical college has been denied permission to admit students for the current academic year.

Not informed

"We have not been informed of the reason for denial of permission. We are exploring all options, including consulting legal experts whether to approach court," he said.

The Puducherry units of the Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam, the All India Anna Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam, the Communist Party of India and the Communist Party of India (Marxist) blamed the government for not getting approval for the college.

Former Education Minister and DMK member in the Legislative Assembly S.P. Sivakumar, in a release, said the government's "lethargic approach" was the reason for not getting approval for the college.

"This will create a bad impression about the government in the minds of the public. The government should consider it a prestige issue and take steps to get permission," he said.

Condemning the Congress government for its failure to get the approval of the MCI, secretary of the AIADMK A. Anbalagan said the government should take responsibility for it.

While Chief Minister V. Vaithilingam had given an assurance in the Assembly, Union Minister of State for Planning, Parliamentary Affairs and Culture V. Narayanasamy had promised voters during Lok Sabha election campaign to start the medical college in the current academic year itself, he told.

Secretary of CPI N. Kalainathan said the government failed to fulfill MCI requirements.

"It was lack of political and administrative will that led to the situation. The government should, at least, act now," he said.

Secretary of CPI(M) V. Perumal, in a release, condemned the government for its inaction that led to the MCI denying permission.
