UPPGMEE row: Students to meet governor
After being denied any help from the state government, students opposing the Uttar Pradesh Post Graduate Medical Entrance Examination (UPPGMEE) on Wednesday sought an audience with Governor BL Joshi to put forth their demand for cancellation of the exam. The delegation of students will meet the governor on Thursday.
Meanwhile, the students on Wednesday started a demonstration outside the King George's Medical University to press for their demands. Sticking to their stand, the students said there was no point in holding a state level exam again when the government has agreed to allot postgraduate seats through the scores obtained in the National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (NEET).
Director general medical education Dr KK Gupta, however, said the state government cannot do anything on the issue as it was only complying with the orders of the Supreme Court in this regard.
