Hold talks with Health Sec­re­tary

The Hindu - - CHENNAI - Spe­cial Cor­re­spon­dent

Post­grad­u­ate ser­vice med­i­cal stu­dents of the Madras Med­i­cal Col­lege have with­drawn their ag­i­ta­tion, one of the stu­dents said. The move came af­ter talks with the State Health Sec­re­tary on Fri­day morn­ing.

The stu­dents have been protest­ing for 20 days over the re­cruit­ment of doc­tors through MRB (Med­i­cal Ser­vices Re­cruit­ment Board) to var­i­ous posts. They had de­manded th­ese post­ings be shown as va­can­cies dur­ing the coun­selling of ser­vice can­di­dates.

Yet to de­cide

“The Health Sec­re­tary has given us as­sur­ances and so, we de­cided to call off the strike. This is a de­ci­sion by the stu­dent coun­cil of MMC. The other med­i­cal col­leges are still de­cid­ing,” the stu­dent said.
