NSUI ACTIVISTS on Sunday burnt effigies of Maharshi College management and university B Ed in charge in all Assembly constituencies to protest against charging of inflated fee and giving admission on false assurances.
NSUI district president Abhinandan Sharma, who is on his second day of an indefinite hunger strike, said that the demonstrations were staged to remind the college management of its promise to the students of getting all things right by Monday. The effigies denoting the college management and B Ed in charge Dr P N Mishra were burnt as a show of anger against their role in the entire affair.
Sachin, Yadav, Ashok Kumar, Vipin Sharma, Ravikant Mishra and Sachin Silawat led the demonstrations and burning of effigies in all five Assembly constituencies respectively. The organisation called for a general ‘bandh’ in all B Ed colleges against this incident on Monday.
The 70 B Ed students in this college, who had raised their voice in protest against the injustice meted out to them, had been assured by the management that the college would get No Objection Certificate from the Higher Education Department.
The students had also been told that the college had obtained National Council for Teachers Training (NCTE) approval and both these documents required for grant of affiliation by the Devi Ahilya Vishwa Vidyalaya would be presented to the university on Monday.
Sharma along with his colleague is sitting on an indefinite strike to get the students their due in the form of examination and subsequent digress from DAVV and refund of higher fee than applicable charged from the students.
Sharma also threatened self-immolation in the presence of the Vice Chancellor if the university/government failed to help the students who were suffering. He said he would continue the hunger strike till justice was done to the Maharshi students.
