Hyderabad: Kaloji Narayana Rao University of Health Sciences (KNRUHS), Warangal has set-up a two-member committee to enquire into the complaints from students from Maheshwara Medical College, Isnapur cross roads, Patancheru who alleged that faculty members were not conducting classes for the past two months.

The two-member Committee headed by Director of Medical Education (DME), Dr. K Ramesh Reddy and Registrar, KNRUHS, D Praveen Kumar will visit the medical college at around 11 am on Monday to enquire into the problem of non-conduct of classes.

The KNRUHS authorities have urged all the students concerned, parents association, principal and faculty of the medical college to represent their grievances to the committee.

Meanwhile, members of Telangana Junior Doctors Association (TJUDA) have extended their support to the students of the medical college.

“For the past 45-days, no classes are being conducted in the medical college. The faculty is refusing to take classes because they have not received their salaries for the past six months and as a result the students are suffering” said Chairman, Telangana Junior Doctors Association, Dr P S Vijayender.

According to TJUDA, the students and parents met the management of the medical college on multiple occasions but there was no assurance from them. “This forced the students to approach the Health University. The students and parents also held protest against the college management on Saturday,” Dr. Vijayender said.
