Hyderabad, May 15 (UNI) CPI Andhra Pradesh Council Secretary K Narayana today sent a telegram to the High Court requesting that it be treated as a Public Interest Litigation (PIL) on the issue of disqualification of disabled medical students in the MBBS course.
In the telegram, he submitted that according to media report, the admission of 20 disabled students to the MBBS course had been cancelled. The cancellation had taken place after the students completed one-year of course, following a ''direction'' from the Medical Council of India.
''Why these 20 disabled students should suffer for the mistake of NTR Health University,'' he contended and submitted that the MCI's behaviour was ''inhuman and against the principles of natural justice.'' UNI VA SJ AKJ ND1942
