DIBRUGARH, June 10 � The Assam Chah Jonogustiyo Jatiyo Mahasabha and All Adivasi Students� Association of Assam (AASAA) have suspected a racket in the selection of candidates for counselling for provisional admission to MBBS/BDS courses in the medical colleges of Assam and Regional Dental College, Guwahati for the session 2015.
The two organizations said that names of students not belonging to the TGL/Ex-TGL (Tea Garden Labour/Ex-Tea Garden Labour) communities have surfaced in the quota list meant for the TGL/Ex-TGL. The selected Roll Numbers in order of merit have been declared and published in today�s issue of The Assam Tribune by Dibrugarh University. At least six students in the list of fifteen Roll Numbers published do not seem to be from the TGL/Ex-TGL communities, the organisations claimed.
Lobin Karmakar, general secretary of the Assam Chah Jonogustiyo Jatiyo Mahasabha said that the quota meant for the students belonging to the tea garden working communities must be purely reserved for them. �I have not come across surnames like �Rahman� �Pandey� �Chall� �Roy� �Kamruzzaman� and �Nirola� within our community. How can we allow these students bearing such surnames rob our quotas,� he questioned.
AASAA president Raphale Kujur also condemned the alleged irregularity in the selection of candidates for the provisional admission to MBBS/BDS courses under TGL/Ex-TGL quota. He alleged that certain section of the government officials was involved in running a racket in selecting non TGL/Ex-TGL community students under the reserved category.
The AASAA president called upon the Directorate of Medical Education to conduct an inquiry into the alleged irregularity to ensure that deserving students of the tea garden working communities are not deprived. He said that the authorities must re-examine the documents of the doubtful candidates as also of their family members to check their community. �The AASAA will also conduct its own inquire. Frauds and all those guilty will not be spared,� he added.
