- Three medical colleges deny admissions to ten students of Meghalaya
- CM Mukul Sangma takes the issue in his hand
- Assam CM has been informed on the issue
Three medical colleges of Assam denied admission to the 10 Meghalaya students under state quota. The students took the matter to the CM of Meghalaya. CM Dr. Mukul Sangma instantly took the details of the matter. For the issue, CM Dr. Mukul Sangma spoke to his Assam counterpart Sarbananda Sonowal today. Sangma told the reporters in a query, “Sonowal has assured me that he would talk to his principal secretary of health to deal with the matter and take the step that is required.”
CM Dr. Mukul Sangma said that he has informed the Assam CM Sarbananda Sonowal that the matter has been in the talks with the top officials and the officials are making no stones unturned to address the matter that could have easily been avoided. Meghalaya government has also ensured that they would approach the Supreme Court ‘immediately’ if the correct actions would not be taken soon.
The students have been in the state of denial by the medical colleges of Assam but the matter is now in the hand of CM of Meghalaya itself, and they are hoping to get the admissions soon in the three medical colleges of Assam, that are, Guwahati Medical College, Dibrugarh Medical College and Silchar Medical College. Earlier, these colleges had admitted the students from Meghalaya under state quota but this year, they denied admissions to 10 students who have already signed a bond with the Meghalaya government. One of the affected students Iaisanbha A Khyllepo said that he was told by the authorities of Dibrugarh Medical College that the seats have already been filled and thus the admission had to be canceled.
