RKDF Medical College: 150 MBBS students demonstrate calling for shift
Bhopal: 150 MBBS students of RKDF University demonstrated in protest, asking for a shift to other colleges of the state as ordered by the Apex Court after it cancelled the batch admissions. This was done due to the irregularities prevailing in the admission process at the hands of the management.
