The Mandya Institute of Medical Sciences which is in news for groupism, nepotism and maladministration, witnessed a protest by the students against a progressive forum which according to them, was trying to tarnish the institute’s image by levelling baseless allegations.

They termed allegations as ‘false’ and ‘baseless’ and gave a clean chit to the teaching staff. The students urged the Government to order for an impartial probe into those allegations to establish truth.

The protest rally started from the college premises and culminated at the DC’s office where they submitted a memorandum.

 They blamed some vested interests for bringing bad reputation to the institute.
They firmly said no the any kind of interference from outsiders or media persons in the internal affairs of the institute.

Notice to students 

Meanwhile, Dr Pushpa Sarkar, director of MIMS said she would issue show cause notice to students who took out a protest rally without bringing to her notice. “This amounts to indiscipline and the notice will be served to all” she said.

Interestingly, the students failed to obtain permission from police Station concerned to hold the protest. When asked, the students refused to talk to media persons.

Cold war

It was an open secret that there has been a cold war among teaching staff for the last so many months. It came to light in front of the Deputy Commissioner at a meeting held at MIMS auditorium, on Tuesday. The Institute Director Dr Pushpa Sarkar and others attended the meeting.

It is learnt that heated debate took place between Superintendent of MIMS Dr Ramalingegowda and Dr Nandeesh over the issue of teaching.

When asked about the cold war in the institute, Dr Ramalingegowda declined to comment.
