Students demand lecturers

Demanding the appointment of lecturers in government first grade colleges, the ABVP members staged a protest by forming human chain in front of Jyothi Circle in Mangalore, on Tuesday. The protesters took out a procession rally till DC’s office.

Addressing the protesters, Balmatta Government First Grade College student Rakshitha said that Mangalore University  had announced results of degree examinations quickly. However, even after the commencement of classes for degree colleges, the government colleges does  not have permanent lecturers. The services of guest lecturers were utilised till last year. The government has failed to appoint even the guest lecturers.”

The students also flayed the move of the government and Collegiate Education Department of selecting guest lecturers via online recruitment process introduced from the current academic year. Even after inviting applications online, no efforts have been made to appoint the lecturers. Earlier, the lecturers were appointed by the College Principal.

Without the lecturers, there are no regular classes in the colleges. This has been affecting those students who have been coming to college from far off places. “We have been coming to colleges for the last 12 days. However, no classes have commenced so far. A semester will have only 16 weeks. Without the lecturers, how can students learn?” the protesters asked.

The protesters urged the government to appoint guest lecturers to help poor students who have been depending on government colleges for pursuing education. ABVP state secretary Ramesh K said that the government has failed to distribute textbooks for the PUC students. The textbooks as per the new syllabus has not yet come to the market. As a result, the PUC students are in distress. Even the government PU colleges do not have lecturers. The government should intervene and solve the problems faced by the students. The government should also implement uniform timetable for all the universities.

A memorandum was submitted to the Higher Education Minister R V Deshpande through Deputy Commissioner on the occasion.
