SRINAGAR: Scores of paramedical students studying in different institutes of the Valley Monday held protests against the Classic Hospital administration for allegedly barring them from appearing in examinations.
Students blocked Srinagar-Baramulla road and halted traffic for hours causing inconvenience to commuters.
Students accused the hospital authorities for not giving them prior information about the clearing of their dues. They have spoiled our carrier. Actually they think we reside in far flung areas and can not raise our voice against this grave injustice, said agitated students.
However, hospital authorities in turn blamed students for the mess. These are the backlogged students of 2005, 2006 and 2007 batch. We asked them last month to clear dues. But they didnt give any heed to our directives. Last time they made the excuse of Hartal and I asked my clerk personally to make arrangements for disposing their admit cards at their home addresses, claimed Dr Neelofar, consultant, Classic Hospital adding that some students have not submitted their photographs, some of them have not cleared their dues yet, and some forms are without signatures.
Tell me how I could allow them to sit in examinations when their documents are incomplete. They are the students of different paramedical colleges of the valley. I do not know them even. Now when exams have begun they are making this mess only to avoid clearing their dues, she added. (CNS)
