Students demand stipend

The students alleged that the Department hadn’t released the stipend from past two year and each time officials gave elusive answers when students contacted them. The officials are harassing students who travel from far off places, they added.

Till date written complaint has been filed five times but there is hardly any response from the officials of the department, expressed students who said that they had taken rooms in the town to study and in the absence of stipend were finding it difficult to pay rent and also to manage food expense.

Students took out a protest rally from their college covering important roads of the town. The students withdrew their protest only after Department’s Administrator Siddu Narayana swamy said that documents relating to the stipend were ready but the funds had not been released. He said that funds are expected to be released by the 24 of this month and stipend would be released immediately.

Sandeep, Narsimhappa, Janardhan, Radhakrishna, Vinod Kumar, Nagesh, Shailaja, Kavita, Anjali, Uma, Shalini and others participated in the protest.
