Bhopal: Aggrieved students of RKDF Medical College are all set to file a contempt petition in the Supreme Court against MP Government and DME for their failure to comply with court’s order.
The future of around 150 MBBS students who took admission in RKDF Medical College still hangs in balance as despite Supreme Court order, the state Directorate of Medical Education (DME) has not yet taken decision on shifting these students in other medical colleges.
The Apex court had ordered the DME to accommodate RKDF students after the Medical Council of India (MCI), cancelled the medical college’s affiliation. New batch of medical students are all set to join colleges in next couple of months but the issue of RKDF MBBS students is yet to be resolved.
The students are running from pillar to post to get admission in other medical colleges but to no avail. On April 5, the Supreme Court gave 15 day-time to the state government to coordinate with MCI for the admission of the students. However seen the authorities taking no step in this regard, the students have decided to file a contempt plea in the apex court against MP Government and DME
Medical Council of India (MCI) has already clarified its stand in Supreme Court stating that it is ready to make available 135 seats for the students. Now ball is in DME’s court to ensure that these MBBS students are given admission in other medical colleges, however, as of now, this doesn’t seem happening.
RKDF students’ parents decried lack of coordination between state DME and MCI. Despite SC’s order the authorities are not taking any interest to resolve the issue, future of our children are at state, said the distressed parents. We have given notice to DME and now will file contempt petition the Supreme Court against DME.
A delegation of parents had called on Additional Chief Secretary RS Julania, who is looking after entire affairs at government level. But he expressed helplessness in allotting seats in others state. Parents said that Julania said that he was not authorised to take decision regarding filling the seats in other states.
