Peeved at the lack of medical infrastructure, second-year MBBS students of a Uttar Pradesh (UP) medical college have written a letter to the state chief minister Yogi Adityanath seeking his intervention.
The college is located at Mirzapur Pole in Saharanpur district of UP.
The students of Glocal Medical College and Super Speciality Hospital and Research Centre have alleged the lack of faculty members, as a result of which several classes were not held.
Not only it, the faculty available in the college are not as per the standards of the Medical Council of India (MCI), they rued.

“The MCI has put on hold the admission of MBBS students for two years for not meeting the required standards. It seems MCI will not allow admission this year too, because of the management’s apathy,” students said in the letter.
The students have also forwarded the letter to the MCI.
As per them, there is a complete lack of paramedical college staff.
“Many faculty members have quit their job because they were not paid salary on time. Those who join can’t sustain for long time for this reason. The doctors have gone on strike many times in the past. During inspection days, patients, paramedical staff and faculty members are hired on temporary basis – though they are not the salaried staff of the college,” the letter said.

As per information from MCI, the qualified students of non-recognised colleges can neither practice nor apply for PG courses, said the students.
They have requested MCI and the government to transfer them in any other recognised medical college, so that their future is saved.
