Hostel warden dismissed

Kolar ZP presidents surprise visit proves costly for warden

Mangamma said that inspite of being ordered to provide better facilities to the inmates of the hostel, the warden had not worked in this direction.

The Pre-matriculation and Post-matriculation Women’s Hostel in Kolar is near the Government Women’s College. Mangamma visited and scrutinised the conditions of the Hostel on Wednesday evening.

She also gathered information by speaking to the inmates of the hostel, before giving the orders to Kunjappa, to dismiss the warden.


A previous visit to the Hostel too had brought several problems to light. It was learnt that the girls are denied a lot of facilities. The warden was warned to perform her duties effectively and diligently.

But the condition of the Hostel was found to be the same even on Wednesday. As such, the warden, Manjulamma will be dismissed, explained Mangamma.


A lot of systems in the Hostel were in a disorderly state, when Mangamma paid a surprise visit on Wednesday.

Although Hostel rules require a day-to-day recording of the inmates’ attendance, the register showed entry on just two days.

Out of proportion

Records related to purchase of goods for the Hostel too have no entries since September 1. There was a great difference between the number of students in the Hostel and the amount of food supplies purchased.

The inmates of the Hostel informed Mangamma that the Pre-matriculation section, which has 35 students, had used just three kilograms of rice.

The students also complained to Mangamma that the warden often used foul language while speaking to them.
