5 more students join fast

Tribune News Service


Patiala, October 17

Five more students, who were affected by the decision of Punjabi University, Patiala, to abolish the research work of M.Phil, today joined the ongoing fast being observed by the activists of the Sikh Student Federation (SSF) at its main gate. They are lodging their protest against the closure of M. Phil and some other research courses by the university.

Mr Jasdip Singh, Mr Sarbvir Singh, Mr Nirpesh Singh, Mr Tehinder Singh and Nirmal Singh, who completed their masters in religious studies and comparative studies in religion informed mediapersons that their final semester result was unduly delayed by the university. This action had resulted in the loss of one academic year for them as they could not get admission in other universities for doing M. Phil due to delayed declaration of the results.

Mr Kamaljit Singh, press secretary, SSF, in a press note issued here said that Punjabi University authorities had circulated a notice to all the departments as well as hostels directing the students to stay away from agitating students.

He said Mr Mandhir Singh, president, SSF, said that in most of previous students agitations the Punjabi University authorities blamed that students were not willing to resolve the matter by amicable means or they were non-serious or wanted to create disturbance. But this time the students worked through the proper channel as they made representations to the Vice-Chancellor office, Dean Students Welfare Office, Dean Academic affairs and to the Governor of Punjab and all these attempts failed to bring any positive results.
