Communist party of India(Marxist) (CPM) on Sunday accused the state government of remaining a mute and meek spectator at the ongoing issues in private universities in the state.


In a statement issued here on Sunday, CPM state secretary member Tikender Singh Panwar said the University Grant Commission at the directions of the high court had given a severe indictment towards functioning of these universities; still the state government was in a deep slumber and had not moved an inch for addressing the plight of students and faculty members in these universities.

“The HP Private Educational Institutions Regulatory Commission has virtually become a white elephant with no jaws and teeth to work despite the Supreme Court upholding the relevance of such a statutory body,” he added.

The CPM has blemished the incumbent Congress government as no different from its predecessor the BJP, in terms of education-related matters. Both are and were bent for an all-out sale of education in the hands of commercial entrepreneurs.

The CPIM stated that the state government had given an impetus to these institutions and has created a situation where they were able to do all unscrupulous things without a watchdog in the state. The party was shocked to hear the joining of one of the former governors of the state as pro vice-chancellor in one of the private universities.

The party has warned the state government not to follow the footsteps of its predecessor government.
