Vet college students protest enters fourth day

The protests by the Veterinary college students entered fourth day in Hassan, on Monday. MLA A Manju who visited the spot interacted with the students and heard their grievances. Later, he contacted the vice-chancellor over his cellphone, who is said to have told him that the College would be awarded the affiliation by the end of the month.

He promised to meet the students on October 18 again in this regard. But, the protesting students were not ready to budge. They said that they had been hearing similar assurances since the past three years. The students even displayed the assurances which were published in some of the newspapers.

The Veterinary Council of India had given 28 reasons for not according recognition to the college, including internet facilities, canteen and others. If the management wishes, it could provide these facilties within a week, they said.

“We have been protesting since the past three days, but the dean has gone on a leave,” they complained. The students also alleged that they have been threatened that the hostels would be closed if they do not withdraw the protests.

They would take out a protest rally on Tuesday and submit a memorandum to the deputy commissioner, the students added.
