    AIMIM floor leader Akbaruddin has urged the State government to stop ongoing counseling for medical seats in private colleges. He believes there should be uniformity in the number of seats available in both Minority and non-Minority colleges. CLP leader Mallu Bhatti Vikramarka supports this idea, stating that the norms should be amended to fit the current situation in the separate State.

    Akbaruddin was dissatisfied with Health Minister T Harish Rao’s response to his questions during Question Hour. He demanded that the Competent Authority Quota in Minority Medical Colleges be reduced to 50%, matching the quota in Private un-aided Non-Minority colleges. He argued that more than 350 meritorious students would lose opportunities and have to pay high fees, regardless of their merit. He emphasized that this issue affects students from all backgrounds and should be corrected or counseling should be stopped.
