BARPETA, May 7 � The CPI(M) today strongly protested the reported de-recognition of the Fakharuddin Ali Ahmed Medical College at Barpeta and Jorhat Medical College by the Medical Council of India and urged the government to take immediate steps to restore its previous status.
Party workers staged a demonstrated in front of Fakharuddin Ali Ahmed Medical College here and protested the government inaction and demanded compliance with the Medical Council norms at the earliest.
A memorandum was sent to the Chief Minister where it was alleged that the FAAMC and JMC lacks adequate infrastructure, such as buildings, laboratories and toilets and man-power like doctors, nurses and paramedics.
While the action of the MCI cannot be termed as unjustified, the inaction of the State government to elevate it to the level to satisfy the statutory body is condemnable. It also alleged that the infrastructure in the medical colleges is not at all commensurate to the fund released by the Central and State governments and the utilization shown.
The memorandum indicated that if no step is taken by the government on a priority basis, as many as 200 students aspiring for medical education will be deprived.
