BHOPAL : The students of All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) took out a candle-march on Saturday seeking the appointment of a permanent director at AIIMS, Bhopal.

Director of AIIMS Raipur Nitin M. Nagarkar is having the additional charge of Bhopal.

Students claim that the acting director is not appraised of the ongoing and the shortcomings of the officials and this allows them to hush up the issues which affect students.

They raised the slogan to press demands stating that students are fed up with the present mechanism of AIIMS to handle issues which affect students.

The students do not have any voice as issues raised by them are scuttled. It is not the good for any educational institute as it adversely affects the atmosphere of study.

The students have been agitating for long and previously they have boycotted classes and student union’s former president undertook a foot march.

Dr Ganesh said, “…we have to wait at least 15 days to get an approval on petty issues. So the work gets delayed unnecessarily and justice delayed is justice denied.

It is is all intentional, it is a conspiracy to silence our voice and bring disrepute to AIIMS Bhopal which happens to be among best AIIMS amongst the newly established AIIMS.”
