Alleging that there is widespread irregularities going on in the counselling of management quota medical post graduate seats in the state, the members of Telangana Junior Doctors Association (TJUDA) held a protest and demanded that a thorough enquiry be conducted to bring out the truth and also demanded the organizers of the counselling to conduct the counselling process in a transparent manner.

Expressing their protest, the JUDA members were also supported by the members of Healthcare Reforms Doctors Association (HRDA) and other students wing associations like Akhil Bharatiaya Vidhyarthi Parishad (ABVP). Large number of association members from these organizations gathered at the Prof G Rama Reddy Center for Distance Education where the NEET counselling is being conducted.

According to the protesters from JUDA and HRDA, they are alleging that students from other states had blocked seats as directed by private college managements in the first phase of the counselling held on May 2, 2018.

Despite repeated request by the organizers of the counselling the protesters were not willing to recede back and tried to brag into the counselling centre. The police personnel immediately intervened and shifted the protesters to the Amberpet police station.

Dr Goud a member of JUDA said that despite GO No. 40 no grievance cell had been set up. Officials were giving the original certificates to the aspirants; in fact, they should be deposited at the counselling centre and the same will be sent to the respective medical colleges. “During the counselling the officials are giving away the certificates of the students and taking this as an advantage, the students are using the same certificate from other counselling centres and blocking seats at two places. This is being done on the behest of some of the private medical colleges. Once the seat is blocked, the student has the option of joining in only one seat and the other seat will go vacant and this vacant seat will be later sold out in the open market for lakhs of rupees,”  said Dr. Goud.

Another member Dr Mahesh from HRDA alleged that the counselling authorities are not showing the list of seats that are not reported by the concerned student who has blocked during the counselling. “The authorities are not showing the list released seats that are left non-reported by the students. These seats will be converted into institutional quota after the second round of the counselling and then the college management will sell the left over seats anywhere between Rs. 1.5 crore to Rs. 2.5 crore,” alleged Dr Mahesh.
