Srinagar, Jan 31: Former finance minister Syed Mohammad Altaf Bukhari on Friday urged the Centre to provide 100 per cent reservation to Jammu and Kashmir candidates in the allotment of Post Graduate seats in different medical/dental colleges of the Union Territory.
In a statement issued here, Mr Bukhari expressed serious concern with regard to prevailing obscurity revolving around the whole exercise of filling the Post Graduate seats in different disciplines in SKIMS-Deemed University and other Medical Colleges of Jammu and Kashmir.
''The candidates of Jammu and Kashmir appeared in the examination conducted through NEET after facing tremendous hardships, including internet shutdown. They braved all odds with a hope that they will get their share of seats through the same procedure, which was in vogue before August 5, 2019,'' Bukhari said, while soliciting the personal intervention of Prime Minster Narendra Modi in this regard.
