THE GOVERNMENT Dental College has recently been plagued by a plethora of problems. The college is devoid of water for drinking or any other purpose since Saturday due to the pump of the only boring well supplying water to the college campus having gone kaput.
The students raised an outcry against this as a result of which water was supplied through a fire tender yesterday and the pumping machine was repaired only on the return of Dean Dr B M Shrivastava, who was away on leave.
Electricity supply had also lately been erratic in the prosthodentics department as a result of expansion and renovation work continuing there.
The students complained to the authorities that their studies were being affected as a result of power shortage in the laboratory.
Dr Shrivastava told Hindustan Times that the repair work would continue for a week and the students’ class would be shifted temporarily to another location in the college.
The Neha Verma episode, wherein the woman in question had been appointed to the post of house surgeon, also continued to haunt the college.
It may be recalled that Neha Verma had been issued joining letter by the college authorities and on the first day of work, the students of the college opposed her appointment on the grounds that a student of the college had to be given preference for the job on merit basis.
Furthermore, her appointment was challenged on technical grounds, as the date of completion of her degree did not match with the admission criterion for the post in question. The college administration admitted the discrepancies pointed out and cancelled her appointment. This was, however, challenged in the High Court by the father of the girl, who is a reputed doctor at Maharaja Yeshwant Rao Hospital (MYH).
A stay was obtained and Neha resumed work on the post about a week back. The college today filed a plea in the HC asking the court to scrutinise the admissibility of her case and reject it forthright.
