Pawan Kalyan, the Jana Sena chief, appears to have lost patience over the “injustice” that is being meted out to the 99 Fathima Medical college students.

In a series of tweets on Tuesday addressed to the Andhra Chief Minister Chandrababu Naidu, Pawan Kalyan, while asking Naidu to stand by the students, also wondered if the issue was being “conveniently overlooked.”

Close to 100 students from the 2015-16 MBBS batch of the Fathima Institute of Medical Sciences (FIMS) have been left in the lurch since last year after their college was derecognised. The concerned authorities didn’t relocate them to other medical colleges.

It all started in 2015, when the Medical Council of India derecognised the institution before the academic year began. However, the FIMS management went to the Hyderabad High Court, who allowed the college to provisionally admit students.

On April 24, 2016, almost nine months into their course, the students got to know that their college was derecognised and that their admissions were null and void. They have been running from pillar to post since then.

Pawan, who listened to the students’ pleas on the issue recently in Vijayawada, had assured them that he would make sure that they go to college.

Pawan had said that parents had lost their hard-earned money and students had lost valuable academic time due to the seemingly intentional wrongdoings of the Fathima College management.

In one tweet, Pawan, quoting Napolean: “Every hour of lost time is a chance of future misfortune,” asked if that misfortune was intentionally brought on the innocent students by the college management.

While opining that the same wrongdoing would have attracted severe penalties if it had occurred in any other developed country, he said, “But in our country the law works efficiently on the meek and powerless and the same law works inefficiently on wrongdoers and law-breakers.”

Slamming the government with charged words he said, “If the elected government and administration had conveniently overlooked this issue either intentionally or being busy in the preparation for the next elections… only God knows!”

He concluded by requesting Naidu to stand by the students and give them “speedy justice.”
