Syndicate directs lecturer to refrain from taking class

Syndicate directs lecturer to refrain from taking class

The Syndicate’s decision has come in response to the protest of the MCJ students for the past 10 days demanding action against the said faculty.

The varsity held a special Syndicate meeting on Wednesday in order to discuss the imbroglio.  Speaking to Deccan Herald, Registrar (Administration) Prof K Chinnappa Gowda said the Syndicate meeting concluded with “the most amicable solution to the intriguing issue”.

“The varsity has directed Umeshchandra to refrain from the classes until further orders. The varsity also decided to make alternative arrangements for teaching until a further decision is taken,” he said.

Gowda said the Syndicate expressed its disappointment and displeasure over the conduct of the students for not returning to classes in spite of repeated requests.

They have lost classes and attendance. At least now they should withdraw their protest and return to classes, he said. However, the MCJ students have decided to continue their protest until their demands are met.  They said all the departments in the varsity would be boycotting classes from Thursday.

In the meantime,  Dalit Sangharsha Samiti (DSS) activists too staged a protest in the varsity premises. Police authorities said ASI Cherian has complained that  DSS leader S P Anand used foul words against him when he was on duty at the protest site.
