JUNIOR RESIDENTS of the UP King George’s University of Dental Sciences who participated in the recent strike on the campus will also loose salary for the period of strike.
This was decided in an emergency meeting of dental university’s executive council called today. The meet was held to apprise members of and discuss latest development on the incidents of arson, strike and academic closure sine die on the campus. The KGDU, along with the KGMU, has closed academic activities indefinitely since January 20.
The agenda for the EC meeting included the recent orders from the State government to take action against those involved in incidents of violence and arson. On January 12, violence that broke out on KGMU campus following death of an MBBS student had caused loss of property to the dental university offices also. Its residents had joined the strike called by the Resident Doctors’ Association of the KGMU.
“The EC members decided that salary of those residents who went on strike would be deducted for the period of strike. Moreover, the salary for the period of last two strikes would also be deducted as per the agreement between the residents and the varsity administration,” said KGDU Vice-Chancellor Prof CP Govila.
The past three strikes called by residents were from the period viz. October 23, 2005 to November 11, 2005, November 11, 2005 to November 28, 2005 and January 16, 2006 to January 19, 2005.
The EC discussed threadbare the matter of suspension of those students who are alleged of supporting the strike and violence on campus. However, it was decided that any action should be decided only after completion of the inquiry.
“We are yet to decide about suspending the students as the inquiry against them is pending,” Prof Govila said.
More KGMU suspensions
the KGMU administration today suspended 13 more undergraduates, while junior resident Dr RK Gupta was arrested by the Bazaarkhala police for his involvement in arson on the campus. Members of the proctorial board visited hostels to assess the requirement of repair work before allotment could begin.
