The neighbor told us, “Shooter, when you have given a promise, it should also be kept. Raghukul ritual has always gone, life may go but the word does not go away! While bringing back Indian medical students safely from war-torn Ukraine, many promises were made to them and they were told that they would be absorbed in the medical colleges of India but now the government is flouting the promise. In the Supreme Court, the central government said that these medical students cannot be kept in Indian universities. These students can opt for transfer to other countries after getting approval from colleges in Ukraine.
We said, “Everyone remembers that the government had promised to give admission to these students here and not to lose their studies, why is it going back on the promise now? She could have increased the seats in the existing colleges or opened new medical colleges.
The neighbor said, “Shooter, the government made a lot of promises at first but later it understood that because of poor NEET scores or cheap college fees, these students chose to study in Ukrainian medical colleges. Now if students with low NEET scores will be accommodated in medical colleges in India, then students who are already studying can object. If these students are admitted despite poor merit then it will be injustice to those students who are meritorious or talented. Admission of students returned from Ukraine in Indian colleges will affect the standard of medical education in the country.
We said, “This was to be thought of before bringing back these students. Adopting them is being rejected. Now these poor people are neither from here nor there. The Russo-Ukraine War is not over yet. Where will these students go? Can’t it be that their course should be extended for a year or so and admission should be given to them as a special case. There is a shortage of doctors in India. A condition can be placed before them that on completion of their studies, they will have to serve in rural and tribal areas.
