Referring to the controversies over last year's examinations conducted by the Kerala University at the Alappuzha Medical College and the suicide of one of the medical students there, the KGMCTA leaders said that their inquiry into the matter had found that the teachers were not guilty. The Association has suggested concerted effort on the part of the Government, teachers and the parents to avoid such unfortunate incidents in future.
Referring to the move to impose a medical cess by the state government as part of the new policy initiatives, the Association leaders said such moves would send a wrong signal to all concerned. Instead of imposing separate cess for every service being provided by the State, the Government should meet the expenses from the general tax revenue, they said. The leaders made a fervent call to fill up the vacancies existing in the Government Medical Colleges.
