Tuliram supports demand to bring DMCH under KAAC, to send delegation to HRD
DIPHU, Dec 6: The indefinite protest by various social organisations demanding appointment of grade III (non-technical) and grade IV posts in Diphu Medical College & Hospital (DMC& H) entered its fifth day on Friday as the meeting with Karbi Anglong Autonomous Council (KAAC) chief executive member (CEM) Tuliram Ronghang bore no fruit.
Ronghang called leaders of the agitating organisations for discussion to his official bungalow here.
“Today CEM Tuliram Ronghang has invited us for discussion on our demands. But as our discussion was not fruitful we will continue with our agitation,” Karbi Unemployed Youth Association (KUYA) president Marlov Timung said.
Social organisations demanded 100 percent reservation of grade III (non technical) and grade IV posts for local indigenous candidates. They also demanded that the DMC&H should be brought under the administrative control of KAAC.
Ronghang later told media persons that the KAAC authority supported the demand of the social organisations.
“The state government has also agreed to 100 percent reservation of grade III (non technical) and grade IV post in DMC&H to local candidates. The appointment will be made very soon,” Ronghang said
He also informed that the inspection team from Medical Council of India (MCI) will arrive in December and the second inspection will be in March, 2020. During this period all incomplete works will be done.
“We also want that the DMC&H should be brought under KAAC control and to make it possible I will take a delegation with members of social organisations and student leaders to meet human resources minister in New Delhi. We will take up the matter of having a full-fledged university at Diphu and conducting of Special TET in Karbi Anglong as per Sixth Schedule provision, where KAAC has the authority to conduct the examination.”
