MP Govt all set to challenge HC's DMET order
Bhopal, Sep 17 (UNI) The Madhya Pradesh Government is all set to file a petition in the Supreme court challenging the High Court order -- ruling the Dental and Medical Entrance Test (DMET) on August 13 as valid and rejecting Justice Chandresh Bhushan Committee's recommendation to hold the exam afresh --, official sources said today.
Sources confirmed that the government took decision in view of Advocate General Ravinandan Singh's report regarding the High Court order.
In his report, the Advocate General said the many questions in the matter were still unawnsered and recommended that the High Court order be challenged in the apex court.
Meanwhile, Justice Chandresh Bhushan Comittee will meet in the state capital tomorrow. However, sources claimed that the meeting had nothing to do with the High Court order or the DMET.
Justice Chandresh Bhushan refused to comment on the state government's decision to move the apex court.
The DMET was organised under the supervision of the Justice Chandra Bhushan Committee formed by the state government under directions from the Supreme court.
After complaints of irregulatities in the examination surfaced, the Justice Bhushan Committee had recommended holding the DMET afresh.
On September 15, a division bench, comprising Chief Justice Anang Kumat Patnaik and Justice Suresh Chandra Sinho, while admitting petition filed by Indore-based Sanjay Patni quashed Justice Bhushan Committee's recommendation.
The DMET is conducted for admission into private medical and dental colleges in the state.
The petition had described the Justice Bhushan committee's decision to cancel the examination as illegal.
The court had agreed that the Justice Bhushan committee took the decision without providing appropriate reason.
