Students, who want the govt. to come out with a clear decision on their demands, formed a human chain on Monday

Students pursuing a diploma in nursing organised a human chain near the directorate of medical education on Monday, demanding assurance of job security and scrapping of medical recruitment board examination.

A student of Government Kilpauk Medical College said though they had temporarily withdrawn the protest after holding talks with the health secretary last week, they wanted the government to come out with a clear decision with regard to their demands.

Meeting fails to produce results

“Students from Madurai Medical College had come for a meeting with officials two days ago. But the meeting did not produce any results. The students were sent out of the hostel at night because they continued the protest,” the student claimed.

The students are demanding the government provide jobs for the batches enrolled till 2014, and scrap the proposed medical recruitment board examination for government postings.
