Kanpur: Admission forms of over a thousand
candidates, seeking admission to medical colleges, have been
rejected due to alleged laxity in processing of forms.

The last date of submission of forms was April 11,
however, the forms of as many as one thousand candidates could
not reach the university till the last day of submission,
resulting in their rejection.

"I have full sympathies with the students and have
apprised the UP Principal Secretary (Health) Kapil Dev of
their problems and he will discuss the matter with the
concerned university.

"All the necessary steps will be taken to solve their
problems," District Magistrate Hari Om said.

Protesting the rejection of their forms, the agitated
candidates staged a dharna today and blamed the post office
and the university for "laxity" in processing their forms.

"We dispatched the forms on April 7 by the speed post,
however, the forms didn`t reach the university by the last
date of submission.

"It is unfortunate that after spending so much of money
and time, we will not be able to appear in the exam. Our hard
work has been wasted," Vipin Singh, an aspiring candidate
said.

"We are not aware of the issue, as no one has approached
us till now. We will for sure conduct an inquiry if there is a
complain in this regard," said Ram Bharosa Post Master General
of Kanpur General Post Office (GPO).

Meanwhile, District Magistrate has appealed to the
protesting candidates not to take law into their hands and
assured them that the issue would be resolved soon.
