Medicos to begin protest movement for National Eligibility Entrance Test- Post Graduate results
Medicos from Gujarat have taken the lead in starting a movement to protest the delay in declaration of the result of the National Eligibility Entrance Test- Post Graduate (NEET-PG). The students will take out a rally wearing black ribbons and represent their case for early declaration of the result.
Students said that the NEET-PG exam was conducted between November 23 and December 6. Over 1.20 lakh medicos who had completed their MBBS appeared in the entrance test for admission in the PG seats. "There are only 5,000 PG seats on medical colleges all over the country for which 1.20 lakh students had appeared for the exam. It has been over five months but the result has not been declared. This has resulted in stress on the medicos," said Dr Shakeel Vadaliwala, president of the national body formed by the medicos to press for their case. The NEET-PG result has been pending since it has been challenged in the Supreme Court by a number of private medical colleges.mental
Students said that a co-ordination has been set up between medicos of 15 states where rallies and hunger strikes to get the results declared will be held.
