Guardians of students preparing for admission test for government medical colleges on Friday demanded increase of seats in different government medical colleges across the country as well as punishment of the culprits involved in medical question paper leakage.
They said that if the government increased the seat numbers in the government medical colleges then they do not have to send their children to the private colleges.
They made their demands when health Minister Mohammad Nasim was visiting the medical college admission test centre at Dhaka University arts faculty building on Friday.
Guardians also urged the government to take stern punishment to the culprits who have been leaking the admission test question papers every year.
Mohammad Nasim said nothing about medical seats but told them, ‘we have made suitable admission process for the betterment of the students’.
Regarding the question paper leakage he said that the law enforcers are working on it and strict action will be taken against the culprits.
‘We will take all the initiatives to create good doctors in the country to provide developed medical service across the country’ he added.
The minister came to see the atmosphere of the admission test around 10.30 and did not enter the exam halls thinking of not disturbing the examinees. – Staff Reporter
