JORHAT, May 27 � Demanding all the required facilities for smooth functioning of the Jorhat Medical College (JMC) here, the district unit of the All Assam Students Union (AASU) staged a protest for two hours in front of the medical college on Tuesday.
During the protest, the members of the All Jorhat District Students Union alleged that the medical college is not equipped with necessary infrastructure as the State Government is paying no heed to fulfil the need of the students.
Seeking a high level probe into the negligence on the part of the government for making the JMC self-sufficient, the AASU unit submitted a memorandum to Prime Minister Narendra Modi through the Jorhat deputy commissioner requesting him to take adequate action for fulfilling the needs of medical students in the JMC. They hoped that the new Prime Minister will take up the matter for the benefit of the students and the State as well.
According to the protestors, courses on the important subjects like neurology, cardiology, haematology, nephrology are yet to be launched in the JMC because of poor infrastructure. �Since August 1, 2010, the JMC started functioning. Isn�t it an irony that the students are still being deprived of studies on such important subjects,� asked a protestor.
