HYDERABAD: Youth Congress protested outside Telangana Ministers quarters in Hyderabad on Friday over the Eamcet-2 paper leak issue. A few of the protesters were detained, A news agency reported. Students who have secured ranks in Eamcet II, along with their parents, are demanding not to cancel Eamcet-II, saying that thousands of sincere students will suffer if a fresh entrance examination is conducted.
Students wanted to either meet Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao or health minister C Laxma Reddy on the issue but neither of them were present at the Secretariat on Thursday. “Just because some unscrupulous persons and students have resorted to irregularities, thousands of students who have got ranks by studying sincerely should not be made to suffer.
We demand the Telangana government to take severe action against the officials and persons responsible for the leak and remove the culprit students from ranks list and conduct counselling for the others,” demanded a parent Yerram Umadevi.
“I have already written Eamcet and NEET three times. Now I am completely stressed. We have to put in 18 to 20 hours daily for preparation. Taking an exam again will be severely stressful. As I got good rank in Eamcet-II, I didn’t even take NEET-II. If this exam is cancelled, sincere students like us will suffer,” urged Meghana, a student from Hyderabad, who got 438th rank.
