WITH EXAMINATION fever gripping youths, it provided an excellent opportunity to National Students Union of India (NSUI) activists to take up cudgels on various issues on behalf of students. NSUI announced today that it would open a control room to aid students during exams. Its activists also held a demonstration, demanding 10 grace marks.

Addressing a press conference, City NSUI vice-president Arun Hingankar and spokesman Rohit Joshi said that such a control room was being established for the first time by any outside agency.

The control room established at 41, Sunrise Tower, MG Road, would become operational with the onset of examinations from March 1.

Stress relief measures, medical aid and other guidance like roll number, examination centre would be provided to students and problems in question papers would be resolved through dialogue and if need be, by demonstrations.

The students would be able to contact the control room when it becomes functional on phone numbers 4206671 and 4206672 from six am to 12 am.

A demonstration led by NSUI president from constituency-V of the district Navin Verma was held at the Education Board office. The demonstrators met board regional officer Anand Jain and submitted a memorandum stating their demands.
Verma said that erratic power supply had adversely effected the preparation of students and would get reflected in bad results.

A demand was, therefore, made asking for 10 marks in grace in lieu of the suffering and disruption caused in study on account of the same.

Blaming the State Government for this state of affairs it was alleged by the demonstrators that the Chief Minister and Energy Minister would be directly held accountable for all blame in case of bad results. The activists also raised slogans against both.
