GUWAHATI, May 2 - The Asom Gana Parishad (AGP) today described the directive of the Supreme Court of India making compulsory the all-India level entrance examination for admission into the medical colleges as unfortunate and expressed the apprehension that this would lead to uncertainty among thousands of aspiring students of the State. It has made an appeal to the apex court to review this decision considering the poor academic infrastructure of the State.
In a statement here this evening, AGP president Atul Bora said that the above directive of the apex court would lead to innumerable problems for the State�s students who studied in the vernacular medium schools.
The State also lacks the required academic infrastructure for such all-India level tests. Therefore, it would not be a sound proposition to make the State�s students sit in the tests in which the students of the developed States are also appearing, he said, adding the interest of the State�s students in this respect should be protected.
