Telangana neglected in medical seats allotment: TRS

Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) supremo K Chandrasekhar Rao is likely to speak to the Prime Minister Dr Manmohan Singh about the injustice meted out to medical aspirants of the region by the State government, B Vinod Kumar, senior leader of the party, said on Monday.

Talking to reporters on Monday, Vinod alleged that due to step motherly treatment of N Kiran Kumar Reddy government, government colleges in Telangana had lost out on 150 additional medical seats while it was entirely the opposite in Seemandhra.

“Andhra Medical College (Visakhapatnam), Kurnool Medical College (Kurnool), Siddhartha Medical College (Vijayawada) were given an additional quota of 50 seats each from this year. But due to sheer negligence of the Minister for Medical Education and other Seema Andhra officials, who failed to pursue the case properly with Medical Council of India, Telangana colleges namely Osmania and Gandhi Medical Colleges (Hyderabad), Kakatiya Medical College (Warangal) were deprived of a total of 150 seats,” he pointed out.

The TRS was ready for open debate on the issue with the champions of Samaikya Andhra movement like Lagadapati Rajgopal, Parkal Prabhakar and even the concerned Minister Kondru Murali, he added. [The Hans India]
