Vijayawada: Students and a parent of Fatima Medical College who is demanding justice climbed cell tower in Vijayawada on Sunday.
As many as 100 students got admissions in FIMS in the 2015-16 batch. As there was no approval from Medical Council of India (MCI) for the seats in that academic year, the Supreme Court cancelled their admissions 10 months after the commencement of the academic year. Now, the students and their parents want the government to intervene and address the problem.
According to the news published in DC, six students of the college and a parent agitated climbing a cell phone tower at around 10 a.m.
It may be mentioned that 27 days back, these college students and their parents started their protest at Vijayawada Dharna Chowk.
However, when they failed to get any response from the State Govt., victims of injustice decided to climb the cellphone tower where they stayed for more than 8 hours.
Students who climbed the tower are Kesar Khan, Jakeera Khan, Farook, Noorullah, Hussain, Kishore and father of a student Vishnu, Mr Jaganmohan Reddy.
During the protest, fire brigades were called. Protestors demanded assurance from CM of AP, Mr. N. Chandrababu Naidu.
Mr. Naidu gave them an appointment after District Collector informed the demand of the protestor to him.
Finally, after getting an appointment, protesting students and a parent abandoned their protest.
