After the discussions, the minister concluded that the government would not make any changes in the agreements made with the managements of private medical colleges.
The members of Youth Congress have been observing indefinite fast from the past seven days in front of the secretariat. The Chief Minister of Kerala, Pinarayi Vijayan announced that the government was ready for the talks on September 26, 2016.
However, the members were not satisfied with the discussions and raised slogans against the government for not accepting their plea. The members mentioned that the students and parents are burdened with the excessive fees and hence the YC decided to hold talks with the government. However, the government is not ready to make any changes. One of the members of YC said that they are going to seek adjournment motion over the issue.
