GUWAHATI, May 6: The KMSS has made it clear that it will go for a dhar in front the Directorate of Medical Education (DME) in the city on May 9 and a hunger strike on May 11 if the authority concerned does not assure it of restoring the CEE test for MBBS and BDS courses in the State.
Talking to the press in the city today, KMSS leader Akhil Gogoi said: “The RSS and the BJP want that there should be only one language, one culture and one religion in the country. How many students from Assam will come out successful by appearing in the admission test under CBSE curriculum is open to all. By denying Assam to hold entrance examition for admission into MBBS and BDS courses, the Centre is depriving the education rights of the students of the State. The Centre is out to spell doom the future of the meritorious students of the State who want to undergo medical courses. If the CBSE course is exclusively followed for MBBS and BDS courses in Assam, no student in the State will like to study in Assamese medium schools or under the Board of Secondary Education, Assam (SEBA). We, therefore, don’t accept the NEET introduced by the Medical Council of India (MCI).”
The KMSS leader also came down heavily on Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi. “Why doesn’t the Chief Minister, who often speaks of the Centre not releasing funds and staging dhar in front of Parliament, stage dhar in front of Parliament now? The Chief Minister should also make public the affidavit it has submitted to the Supreme Court on this issue recently.”
