Health Minister Ampareen Lyngdoh today assured to re-verify the documents submitted by the ten candidates for MBBS studies selected under the open category of the State quota and if something wrong is found their selection will be revoked.
She was speaking to media persons after meeting a delegation of the Khasi Students’ Union (KSU) which met her to discuss on the discrepancies in the list.
“We had already written to all Deputy Commissioners to immediately verify all documents submitted by applicants. And the DCs reply enabled us to certify based on their certifications and hence we were able to announce the first list that was already delayed. KSU is still not satisfied that the verifications done at the district are as per order,” Lyngdoh said.
She further added, “Now when these kinds of allegations are being raised, it is but fit for the Health Department to again send for re-verification based on specific indicators for specific cases. We have requested the KSU to submit in writing, otherwise there will be no justification for us to do any other re-verification other than the one already done.”
Lyngdoh added that they have ensured that every applicant who has applied for allocation of seats signed an undertaking that if any document was found to be untrue and fraudulent, their seats will stand revoked.
