Roll back MBBS fee hike, demands SAD

Chandigarh, September 8

The Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) today condemned the Congress government for increasing the fee for MBBS courses by 75 per cent and demanded that the hike be withdrawn immediately.

In a statement issued here, former minister Dr Daljit Singh Cheema said it seemed the government had not learnt any lesson from the Covid-19 pandemic. "The need of the hour is to reduce MBBS fee to ensure students from ordinary backgrounds can become doctors. It is these students who will be ready to serve the state in rural areas. Instead of subsidising medical education to make it within the reach of common man, the Congress government has increased fee in both government as well as private medical colleges."

The SAD leader said in case the government did not withdraw this unjustified hike, the shortage of doctors in the state would increase further. — TNS
