RAISING THE reservation issue, Allahabad University (AU) students burnt the effigy of oversight committee chairman Veerappa Moily at the AU student union (AUU) hall on Saturday.

A panel under the chairmanship of Moily, was formed by the Central Government to look into the reservation issue.

The students led by the union president Ajit Kumar Yadav expressed resentment over Moily’s statement on OBC quota issue and demanded tabling of OBC reservation bill in the monsoon session of Parliament.

Students demanded to bring the reservation bill in the monsoon session and condemned Moily for suggesting to implement 27 PC reservation for OBCs in parts and to delay the bill for reservation.

Student leaders said that Moily should submit his report in Parliament. They charged the Congress-led Central government for hesitating to table the reservation bill in Parliament.

Those present on the occasion were Surendra Chaudhari, Dinesh Yadav, Pralkar, Santosh Yadav, Santosh Verma, Banke Lal Patel, Dr Satiram Yadav, Nagendra Chaudhari, Sanjay Yadav and Nirbhay Narayan among others.

College staff grievances: President of the Allahabad University Constituent Colleges Association Ram Muni Pandey has urged the vice-chancellor and other authorities to look into the grievances of teachers and other employees of the constituent colleges.

In a press release issued here on Saturday, Dr Pandey said that the Allahabad University, with its 11 colleges, became central university on July 14, 2005.

The AU could achieve the central status following great efforts made by teachers, non-teaching staff and students.

He said that the teachers  and the non-teaching staff who have retired from the service have not got their provident funds. Besides, pension cases were still pending. So they were facing hardship, he said. He said that the teachers of constituent colleges and members of the non-teaching staff were not getting medical facilities like other Central employees. Some of the teachers and employees were suffering from various ailments, he added.

Students flay move: Student leaders flayed the some members of the AU administration for tarnishing the image of student leaders.

AU student leader Sanjeev Rai said that some AU teachers holding administrative posts were giving misleading information about students to the V-C.
