The procedure for the applicants was to get a slip from the OPD councils and the go to another room for a walk-in interview. So far 1,300 slips have been handed out.
The hospital administration says they will conduct interviews for all the applicants, even if that means they’re sitting there till 10pm.
Applicants became rowdy and started pushing and shoving their way in. Some even tried jumping over the hospital gate.
The police and Rangers are outside the hospital trying to control the crowd.
