Students who passed NTS protest in front of Sindh Assembly
KARACHI: The students who have passed medical college entry test on Tuesday staged a protest rally that started from Dow Medical College (DMC) and culminated at Karachi Press Club against cancellation of National Testing Services (NTS) results by Sindh government.
The dozens of students and their parents staged a protest demonstration at Dow Medical College (DMC) and blocked the Baba-e-Urdu Road against cancellation of NTS result for admission in medical institutes.
They rejected the Sindh Government decision to conduct test afresh for admission in medical colleges and universities over alleged paper leak reports and protests.
The protesters were carrying banners and placards inscribed with different slogans.
The protesters first moved to the Arts Council Chowrangi where they staged a protest demonstration.
They said the cancellation of NTS result is injustice to them and they will not accept this test afresh. Some students tried to enter the Sindh Assembly Gate but law enforcement agencies stopped them.
Later, the students and their parents staged protest outside the Karachi Press Club and categorically rejected the Sindh government plan to conduct new test for admission in government-run medical colleges and universities in the province.
Earlier, Sindh Chief Minister had cancelled the pre-admission test of medical colleges and universities, conducted by National Testing Service (NTS), over alleged paper leak reports.
The test was cancelled on the recommendations of the inquiry committee, which was constituted by Sindh Health deportment on October 26 2017.
The test will now be held within 12 days through Dow University of Health Sciences (DUHS) Karachi. DUHS has been advised to follow the notified standard operating procedures (SOPs) policy for conducting the pre-admission test in letter and spirit.
